Quote of the Day
In the family the apostolate of the laity is of unique importance for the Church. The apostolate of the social milieu is the effort to infuse a Christian spirit into the mentality, customs, laws and structures of the community in which a person lives. If the lay faithful do not discharge this apostolate, something vital would be missing in the general mission of the Church.
