Day #219: Ad Gentes 27

Today we conclude chapter 4 on Missionaries in the Decree on the Mission Activity of the Church.

Article 27 closes out the chapter with the Council Father’s acknowledgement that no one person can possibly do all that they have laid out is necessary for missionaries to do.  Hence they point to the institutes of missionaries.  There are no lone wolf missionaries.

Here is the footnote:

13. Cf. “On Priestly Ministry and Life,” 10, refers to dioceses and personal prelatures and the like.
