Laypeople are on the front line

“Laypeople are on the front line of the life of the Church. … Let us pray together this month that the lay faithful may fulfill their specific mission, the mission that they received in Baptism, putting their creativity at the service of the challenges of today’s world. … We need their testimony regarding the truth of the Gospel and their example of expressing their faith by practicing solidarity.” ~Pope Francis, May 3, 2018
