In today’s passage from the Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity, we continue to look at forming the laity for the task at hand.
In article 30, we see the Council Fathers emphasizing that this formation begins at the earliest moments, both in the family and school contexts. Further, this formation is also undertaken by the lay apostolates themselves.
Here is the footnote:
