Today we read again from Chapter I of the Decree on the Mission Activity of the Church.
As is frequent in the Conciliar documents, we continue on in a sort of chronological snapshot of salvation history. In the reading for the previous two days, we looked at the Persons of the Trinity. In article 5, we take a look at the Apostles’ continuation of the Trinitarian mission in the world, and down through history through the Church and the successors of the apostles.
Here are the Scripture citations:
cf. Matt. 28 18
cf. John 20:21
cf. Col. 1:24
And the footnote:
13. Tertullian, “Apologeticum,” 50, 13 (PL 1, 534; CChr. 1, 171.
