Day #207: Ad Gentes 14

In today’s reading from the Decree on the Mission Activity of the Church we look again at “Preaching the Gospel and Gathering together the People of God.”

Article 14 finishes up the second setion of Chapter 2 on preaching the Gospel.  This article importantly touches on the catechumenate and their entry into the Church.

Here are the Scripture citations:

cf. Col. 1:13

cf. Rom. 6:4-11; Col. 2:12-13; 1 Peter 3:21-22; Mark 16:16

cf. 1 Thess. 3:5-7; Acts 8:14-17

And the footnotes:

3. Cf. Dogmatic constitution, “Lumen Gentium,” 17.

4. Cf. Constitution, “On Sacred Liturgy,” 64-65.

5. Concerning this liberation from demons and the powers of darkness, in the Gospel, cf. Matt. 12:28; John 8:44; 12:31 (Cf. I John 3:8; Eph. 2:1-2). In Liturgy of Baptism cf. Roman Ritual.

6. Cf. Dogmatic constitution, “Lumen Gentium,” 14.

7. Cf. St. Augustine, “Tract on John” 11, 4 (PL 35, 1476).
