Day #270: Apostolicam Actuositatem 26-27

Today in the Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity, we finish Chapter V on the laity’s relationship with others.

Article 26 speaks on the common work between laity and clergy at the level of diocesan and inter-diocesan councils.  Article 27 wraps things up with an encouragement of the laity to work together with other Christians as well, when possible to do so.
