Day #238: Presbyterorum Ordinis 11

Once again we look to the Decree on the Ministry and Life of Priests.  Today we wrap up Chapter II on the Ministry of priests.

Article 11 finishes off section 3 of this chapter with a look at fostering vocations to the priesthood and how the responsibility for this is shared by all of us.

Here is the Scripture citation:

2 Tim 2:2
