Day #218: Ad Gentes 26

In today’s reading from the Decree on the Mission Activity of the Church, we continue our look at Missionaries.

In today’s passage (article 26), the Council looks at the training these missionaries will require in order to fulfill their task.  This includes knowing the teachings of the Church and also the culture and language of the people they are going to serve.
