Vocation and Mission of the Laity

The Church of the Third Millennium will need to encourage all the baptized and confirmed to be aware of their active responsibility in the Church’s life. In a special way it will be necessary to discover every more fully the specific vocation of the laity, called “to seek the kingdom of God by engaging in temporal affairs and ordering them according to the plan of God.” They have their own role to play in the mission of the whole people of God in the Church and in the world…by their work for the evangelization and the sanctification of people. (The New Millenium # 46)
