One of Endow's greatest responsibilities is to safeguard the deposit of faith handed down to us from generations. For that very reason Endow has chosen this document as one of our studies because it addresses the question we currently face: What does the modern church look like? What are we supposed to be to the world in our current culture? This document was written to explain the intent and vision for Vatican II breaking down an understanding of who we are and what we believe. Light of the Nations is the constitution of the Catholic faith in our current time and an essential foundational piece of knowledge every Catholic should intimately be familiar with.
