Quote from Vatican II Document - DECREE ON THE APOSTOLATE OF LAY PEOPLE, "In its desire to intensify the apostolic activity of the people of God, the Council now earnestly turns its thoughts to the Christian laity. Mention has already been made in other documents of the laityís special and indispensable role in the mission of the Church. Indeed, the Church can never be without the lay apostolate; it is something that derives from the laymanís very vocation as a Christian. Scripture clearly shows how spontaneous and fruitful was this activity in the Churchís early days (cf. Acts 11:19-21; 18:26; Romans 16:1-16; Phil. 4:3)."
