eCatechist.com asked Ed Hahnenberg to select 52 significant quotes from the Sixteen Documents of Vatican II. It is our intention that these quotes will serve as inspiration and motivation for further reading, study, discussion and prayer. We will post one a week.
24. Following in the footsteps of the men and women who assisted Paul in the proclamation of the Gospel (see Acts 18:18-26; Rom 16:3), lay persons of a genuinely apostolic spirit supply the needs of their brothers and sisters and are a source of consolation to the pastors no less than to the rest of the faithful (see 1 Cor 16:17-18) (Apostolicam Actuositatem, no. 10).
