Today in the Decree on the Mission Activity of the Church, we continue looking at the particular churches
Article 20 speaks of the need for the local churches to be a witness to all those who live in that area. This passage looks at the role of bishops, priests, laity, and associations of the faithful.
Here are the footnotes:
3. Cf. Dogmatic constitution, “Lumen Gentium,” 25.
4. Cf. Decree, “On Priestly Ministry and Life,” 10, where in order to render particular pastoral labors easier for various social groups, provision is made for the establishment of personal prelacies, insofar as needs of the apostolate demand it.
