Now we move into the second section of the Decree on the Mission Activity of the Church. Chapter II covers “Mission Work Itself”
Paragraph 10 introduces the chapter by acknowledging that the Church still has a “gigantic missionary task” left to do. There is still much work to be done.
Paragraph 11 starts off the first of the three sections this chapter is divided into. This section is on “Christian Witness.” This witness is of utmost importance in the Church’s missionary work. We must live among the nations and be witnesses to the culture we are in.
