Day #227: Ad Gentes 41-42

Today we finish up our reading of the Decree on the Mission Activity of the Church.

Article 41 finishes up the chapter on cooperation by looking at the role of the laity and the concrete things they do to cooperate in the Church’s missionary mandate.

In article 42, the Council Fathers conclude the document with some words of gratitude for those who serve the Church as missionaries.
