ROYAL PRIESTHOOD - (The Laity) All true believers in the Church. It is the responsibility of all believers for the preservation and propagation of the Gospel and the Church, and to give thanks to God. All were created to bless and praise God, to worship Him. This is the primary human vocation because this is precisely what human beings were created to do: to be in communion with God as His priests, and in that role to worship Him.
