  • How do they participate in the Kingly office?

The laity participates in the Kingly function of Christ because they have received from him the power to overcome Sin to themselves and in the world by self-denial and the holiness of their lives. They exercise various ministries at the service of the Community and they imbue temporal activities and the institutions of Society with moral values. Eph. 4:7; Phil 2:8-9; Ps 118:14:30.
