Pope to Pontifical Mission Societies: We must grow in evangelizing passion

2016-06-06

The Pope met with the national directors of the Pontifical Mission Societies from around the world who are gathered in Rome to mark the centenary of its founding.

In 1916, Blessed Paolo Manna founded the Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions. Forty years later, it became the Pontifical Missionary Union thanks to Pius XII.

Cardinal Fernando Filoni, the prefect of Propaganda Fide told the Pope that they all went on a pilgrimage to the tomb of Manna. This is what he told him.

CARD. FERNANDO FILONI
Prefect, Propaganda Fide
"We assure our constant remembrance in prayer for you and for your ministry, entrusted to the Virgin Mother, Queen of the Apostles, and to the intercession of Blessed missionary Paolo Manna."

Indeed, the Pope assured them that, just as Paolo believed this, all Christians are called on mission.

POPE FRANCIS
 "Through this service with charity of their own, pastors keep the Church always and everywhere in a state of mission, which is always ultimately God's work, and in which they participate through Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist, and all Christians.”

Pope Francis also told them that growth is needed in evangelizing passion and asked them to never become an NGO that only prioritizes the organizational aspects over the spiritual.
