Affirming Laity's Role

A response to: Benedict XVI: Church Needs Change of Mentality

Thank you, Holy Father, for affirming lay people in our sharing in the dignity of God’s People and in the responsibility of building up the Church!

Thank you, too, for affirming what it means to be Church — not only as a community of persons but as a people called by the Father in Christ Jesus.

Especially here in the Philippines, where majority of the population is Catholic, we hope that this awakening of the laity to our unique and important role, and our embracing of it, will lead to a more vibrant Church.
