Day #308: Christus Dominus 11-12

In today’s reading from the Decree Concerning the Pastoral Office of Bishops in the Church, we begin Chapter II on “Bishops and Their Particular Churches or Dioceses.”  This chapter takes up the bulk of the document.

Article 11 starts off section 1 of Chapter  II on “Diocesan Bishops”.  This paragraph gives a basic overview of what a diocese is and the relationship of the bishop to that diocese.  Article 12 begins the discussion of the bishop’s role as teacher.

Here is the Scripture citation:

Eph. 5:9

And the footnotes:
