Message for World Mission Day: Pope urges Catholics of their duty as missionaries

The Pope focused on the fact that there are a growing number of people who know God but have forgotten or abandoned the Gospel and the Church. The pope said that even where Catholic traditions are dominant, people are reticent to open themselves up to the word of God. Instead, they act as if “God doesn?t exist”. Aside counteracting these negative effects of globalization, some of the main objectives of World Mission Day is to garnering support for missions around the world. These organizations operate everything from sunday schools to hospitals and shelter for the world?s most impovershed. As the Pope says, it?s a “universal mission involving all of us”. SCRRHCBN
