This post is to bring to you attention an excellent talk given by Card. Arinze on one of the greatest fruits of Vatican II. That of a greater awareness of the lay apostolate.
Click here for a link to the video.
What does Christ call the lay person to do? What is the lay persons distinctive role? What does Vatican II have to say?
These are great questions and this is a great video. Lay apostolates are not just to help priests, but we have our own sphere. We have to bring Christ into the specular order of the world. See Vatican II’s excellent Apostolicam Actuositatem (here for Holy See link)
Let’s go promote this message and provide a space for it in our lives!
