Fr. Joe’s Weekly Letter to Parishioners

October 20, 2019

This weekend is World Mission Sunday in the Catholic Church throughout the world. On this Sunday Catholics attending weekend Masses will hear about the missionary vision of Jesus Christ and how the Church lives that vi-sion today.

Among the final words of the Risen Lord Jesus are, “Go into the world and make disciples of all nations.” At the end of Mass, the Deacon exhorts, “Go in peace, to love and serve the Lord.” There is also the exhortation, “proclaim the gospel by your lives.” In Latin this phrase is “Ite Missa est.”

The understanding is that we are to go into the world and proclaim a message of Good News filled with hope com-ing from the Risen Savior Jesus Christ. There are missionaries throughout the world in foreign countries. The invitation to be a missionary is more than going to a distant land to preach about Jesus. The call is for all of us to live ever more faithfully the gospel message of Jesus in our own families and in the world around us calling each one of us to a conversion of heart each day.

All members of the Church are to live as Missionary Disciples.

We ask you to support World Mission Sunday by your prayers and a financial contribution. But we also ask that you open your heart to being a missionary disciple in your own family, at work and in all the places you go by being a person of faith, mercy, God’s justice and peace. In humble, patient service let us bring the message of Jesus Christ to others

Msgr. Joe
