The Layperson’s Distinctive Role

  • Description: The role of the laity in the Catholic Church is often a debated topic and a source of confusion. An important and timely new book, "The Layperson’s Distinctive Role," written by the highly regarded African prelate, Cardinal Francis Arinze, describes in positive and simple terms who the lay person is, his distinctive role in the Church, and how the lay apostolate distinguishes the lay faithful from the clergy and the religious. Mark Brumley joins Teresa today to make sure our listeners know all about this new book.
