Day #223: Ad Gentes 35-37

Today in the Decree on the Mission Activity of the Church, we move into the final chapter of the document where we look at “Cooperation.”

The Council Fathers begin Chapter 6 with a reminder that we are all obligated to participate in the spreading of the Gospel (articles 35 and 36).  Part of this is accomplished through the witness of our communities of faith (article 37).

Here are the Scripture citations:

Eph. 4:13

cf. Is. 11:12

Matt. 5:14

Matt. 5:13

cf. Acts 16:9

And the footnote:

1. Cf. Decree, “On Ecumenism,” 12.
