Day #258: Apostolicam Actuositatem 11

Today in the Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity, we continue to look at the “fields” where the laity’s ministry takes place

Article 11 speaks of that critically important field: marriage and the family.

Here is the Scripture citation:

cf. Eph. 5:32

And the footnotes:
