On 5 July 1962, the Preparatory Commission for Lay Apostolate wrote to its members to inform them that the draft “Constitutionis Apostolatu Laicorum” had been “well received.”
We are pleased to inform you that the files of the Constitution on the Apostolate of the Laity, prepared with your skilful collaboration, proposed to the Central Commission for discussion in the last Session, were very well received.
Certain improvements of minor importance were indeed required, which are now being reduced, with the help of the Members who live in Rome.
Taking the opportunity again and again, we send our greatest greetings to you and we predict a very happy outcome in your apostolate.
