Day #257: Apostolicam Actuositatem 9-10

Today in the Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity, we begin Chapter III on “The Various Fields of the Apostolate”

Article 9 introduces the third chapter as a place for the Council Fathers to talk about where this work of the laity takes place.  The first field up for discussion in article 10 is the various fields within the Church: the parish, the diocese, and even inter-diocesan events.

Here are the Scripture citations:

cf. Acts 18:18, 26; Rom. 16:3

cf. 1 Cor. 16:17-18

And the footnotes:
