Benedict XVI
“It is necessary to continue the work of evangelization with renewed enthusiasm, to lead humankind to the true freedom of the sons of God, against all forms of slavery. It is necessary to cast the net of the Gospel into the waters of history to lead mankind toward the land of God.”

The pope asked the missionaries not to be afraid in openly proclaiming the Christian faith. He said that “while Christians are currently the religious group that suffers the most persecution, they should not have fear.”

Benedict XVI
“The Church must constantly renew her commitment to bringing Christ to the people, to continue her messianic mission for the coming of the Kingdom of God.”

Benedict XVI thanked the missionaries for their work throughout the world and described them as a strong instrument of cooperation between all countries.
