To make you think

Borrow money from a pessimist – they don’t expect it back.

Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.

To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.


World Mission Sunday
World Mission Sunday, organized by the Propagation of the Faith, is a day set aside for Catholics worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church's missionary activity through prayer and sacrifice

It is "an important day in the life of the Church because it teaches how to give: as an offering made to God, in the Eucharistic celebration and for all the missions of the world" (see Redemptoris Missio 81).


“Being a missionary is not about proselytizing or mere strategy; mission is part of the 'grammar' of faith, something essential for those who listen to the voice of the Spirit who whispers 'Come' and 'Go forth.' When we pray before Jesus crucified, we see the depth of his love which gives us dignity and sustains us. At the same time, we realize that the love flowing from Jesus' pierced heart expands to embrace the People of God and all humanity ... In Jesus' command to 'go forth', we see the scenarios and ever-present new challenges of the Church's evangelizing mission”.  Pope John Paul II
