‘You are Mission’

October 29, 2018 Mark Toohey

‘You are Mission’ is a message for all of us. As Pope Francis writes in his World Mission Day message this year, ‘Every man and woman is a mission; that is the reason for our life on this earth…No one is so poor as to be unable to give what they have, but first and foremost what they are…Never think that you have nothing to offer, or that nobody needs you. Many people need you.’ (Message from Pope Francis for World Mission Day, Rome 2018).
