POPE FRANCIS CALLS ON ALL OF US TO GET INVOLVED

100 years have passed since Pope Benedict XV wrote his Apostolic Letter, Maximum Illud, calling on the faithful to spread the Good News of the salvation of Jesus Christ to the world.

In commemoration of this anniversary, Pope Francis has declared October 2019 to be an Extraordinary Month of Mission, and called on us all to renew our missionary commitment.

“The Church needs men and women who, by virtue of their baptism, respond generously to the call to leave behind home, family, country, language and local Church, and to be sent forth to the nations, to a world not yet transformed by the sacraments of Jesus Christ and his holy Church,” the Holy Father said.

“To men and women missionaries, and to all those who, by virtue of their baptism, share in any way in the mission of the Church, I send my heartfelt blessing.”

Not everyone can travel to far off places to spread the Word. But we can support those who do. During October we honour the priests and nuns who serve on the Zulu Missions, bringing salvation, hope, love and compassion to people in great need.

Please play your part by:

  • Praying for the Missions and all Missionaries
  • Spreading awareness in your parish, your community and the workplace
  • Making a donation towards Mission work
  • Consider leaving a bequest to the Missions in your Will
