Vocation and mission of the laity in the church and in the world twenty years after the Second Vatican Council ; lineamenta by Catholic Church. Synodus EpiscoporumPages: The Vocation and Mission of the Laity. The Spirit sent by the risen Christ continues to act, now as always, in and through the Church. To better understand today, it is good to remember the past. We recognize the action of the Spirit in the life and diversity of civilizations and their ever-changing view of life. 2. the vocation and mission of the laity. 3. the two most pressing challenges of the lay faithful in Asia. Before addressing these three issues, I should say that Christifideles Laici represents for our dicastery a kind of “magna charta” or “handbook” for the lay apostolate. 13 Its long-File Size: KB.

Therefore many assume they don’t have a vocation, that they don’t have a mission.” 5. The Church defines laity by what we are: • sharers in Christ’s office of priest, prophet, and king, • holders of an important vocation, and • critical participants in fulfilling the mission of the Church. This document is also directed to the laity, religious priests, diocesan priests, bishops and all those who want to know about, appreciate and promote the vocation of the Religious Brother in the Church. 1 Throughout the document we will preferably use the term proposed in the Apostolic Exhortation VitaFile Size: KB. Vocation: the laity are called to the consecrated religious life or to be come married into the domestic church; married couples are called to have children and raise the in the right respects of the church and. Of their own child's vocation to follow Jesus.
The laity, by their very vocation, seek the kingdom of God by engaging in temporal affairs and by ordering them according to the plan of God. They live in the world, that is, in each and in all of the secular professions and occupations. They live in the ordinary circumstances of family and social life. This renewed attitude of love that inspired the Conciliar Fathers led, also, among its many fruits, to a new way of looking at the vocation and mission of the laity in the Church and in the world. The rest of the book beautifully enfleshes the Second Vatican Council's teaching about the laity, the importance of Personal Vocation, the role of the Laity in the Mission of the Church and the Spirituality of the Laity/5(8). In the discussions of vocation that we have surveyed so far, seldom has the concept of the vocation of the laity in the world been directly related to discussion of the doctrines of ministry or mission. This is not to suggest that no links are made, but rarely are these links explored at any depth.
