Promoting the vocation of the laity towards God
Promoting the vocation towards God
Preserving the deposit of faith is the mission that the Lord entrusted to his Church and that it carries out at all times. The purpose and desire of the Catechism of the Church is to make clear the apostolic and pastoral mission of the Church, and to lead all men, through the splendor of the truth of the Gospel, to seek and welcome the love of Christ that is above all thing (cf. Eph 3:19).
The Holy Scriptures, the Old and New Testaments, constitute the written Word of God, transmitted by divine inspiration through the holy men of God who spoke and wrote being inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Also called the Liturgy of the Hours, it is a book that brings together the prayers, biblical readings and psalms that the faithful must pray at different times of the day.
Its composition depends on the liturgical season, and can be read by both the priest and the layperson. It can be read both in community and personally.
Nothing that we do as Catholics is more important than the worthy celebration of the Sacred Liturgy. Not long ago, the Holy Father and his advisers on liturgical matters gave the Universal Church a new series of instructions for the celebration of Mass. These new instructions are called The General Instruction of the Roman Missal.
The social doctrine of the Church is the set of social teachings that the Catholic Church calls to practice any Christian or person of good will and of any origin and place, based on the Gospel, the Magisterium and Tradition. The Compendium of the social doctrine of the Church and the Catechism of the Catholic Church is a renewed doctrinal body, which is articulated as the Church in the fullness of the word of God revealed by Jesus Christ and through the assistance of the Holy Spirit, Read the facts as they unfold in the course of the history.
The layperson is responsible – according to his condition – for the mission of the Church because he is the Church. His “secular nature” enables him in a specific way for the secular apostolate, that is, to order temporal realities according to God’s plan so that they serve the discovery and promotion of the dignity of the children of God and, through them, these may give glory to God and merit their salvation in Christ.
