Today in the Decree on the Mission Activity of the Church, we continue looking at the particular churches
“The church has not been really founded, and is not yet fully alive, nor is it a perfect sign of Christ among men, unless there is a laity worthy of the name working along with the hierarchy.”
These profound words begin article 21, which focuses on the laity. The laity are the connecting point between the Church and the civil society, so much rests on their shoulder for spreading the faith in the culture.
Here are the Scripture citations:
cf. 1 Cor. 15:23
cf. 1 Cor. 15:28
cf. Eph. 4:24
