Today the universal Church celebrates World Mission Sunday. We recall as Catholics the mandate of Christ to spread the Gospel to the ends of the world. From the day of our Baptism, we have all been called and sent out to proclaim Christ to the world. Our focus today is on missionaries who preach the Gospel throughout the world. On this special Sunday, we are invited to support their effort as together we share the faith and bring hope to the weak and powerless.
