- Message for World Mission Sunday, June 8, 2014 Pope Francis
Mission Sunday is more than reflecting of the work of missionaries throughout the centuries. It is a reason to pause and reflect on our own missionary work. We are called to share the good news of Christ with those we meet. We need to be people of joy, showing those who struggle to believe that following Christ is a gift. Mission Sunday is also an opportunity to reflect on and give thanks for those who sowed the seed of faith in our own lives. Many people touch our spiritual journey, sometimes without our being aware of that gift. In turn, we need to sow the seeds of faith in those we meet, even if it is a passing encounter.
