Day #254: Apostolicam Actuositatem 5-6

In today’s reading from the Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity, we start Chapter II on “Objectives.”

We’ve seen in Chapter I the principles behind the vocation of the laity.  In Chapter II we look at the concrete ojectives.  Article 5 introducese things with two main objectives: salvation of souls and sanctification of the temporal order.  Article 6 addresses the first of those two objectives.

Here are the Scripture citations:

3 John 8

Matt. 5:16

2 Cor. 5:14

1 Cor. 9:16

And the footnote:

1. cf. Pius XI, encyclical “Ubi Arcano,” Dec. 23, 1922: A.A.S. 14 (1922) p. 659; Pius XII, encyclical “Summi Pontificatus,” Oct. 20, 1939: A.A.S. 31 (1939) pp. 442-443.
