World Mission Sunday

Pope Francis, Message for World Mission Sunday 2013:

"Each community is 'mature' when it professes faith, celebrates it with joy during the liturgy, lives charity, proclaims the Word of God endlessly, leaves one's own to take it to the 'suburbs,' especially to those who have not yet had the opportunity to know Christ."
Today is World Mission Sunday! We are called to this Eucharistic Celebration and invited to "do good on earth," to be missionary by putting our faith into action in support of the work of missionaries like Sister Clara who rescues girls from human trafficking in India, giving them a loving home. Your prayers and generous gifts to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith on World Mission Sunday support the tireless work of so many priests, religious and lay leaders around the world as they offer practical, emotional and spiritual care to communities, children and families in desperate need, bringing the light of Christ to the darkest of circumstances.
