Pope Francis: “Missionary activity is still the greatest challenge for the Church”

2015-06-05

For Pope Francis, missionary activity is the most important objective of the Church, and its renewal depends on the missions. His remarks came during an address to the general assembly of the Pontifical Missionary Societies.

POPE FRANCIS
"The evangelizing mission has priority because missionary activity is still the greatest challenge for the Church. I'd like to find words that encourage a more fervent evangelical attitude.”

He also told them that missionary activity has to bring aid and the Gospel together in order to be efficient and credible. He urged them to resist the tendency to become an NGO and merely distribute aid to impoverished people. The Pope said that money can help a mission, but it can also ruin it. 

Pontifical Missionary Societies provide economic support to missions in areas where Christians do not live. They were created to help evangelize and to promote the well-being of local populations.
