MCC Election 2017 Directive / Guidelines

Alle Christen nehmen auf ihre Weise teil am Auftrag der Kirche. Die Laien haben „das Recht und die Pflicht, einzeln oder in Gemeinschaft mit anderen, daran zu arbeiten, dass alle Menschen... die göttliche Heilsbotschaft kennen lernen und aufnehmen... In den kirchlichen Gemeinschaften ist ihre Tätigkeit so notwendig, dass das Apostolat der Seelsorger ohne sie meistens nicht zur vollen Wirkung gelangen kann." (KKK 900)
