Go, Share the Good News
The Holy Father Pope Francis has declared October 2019 to be an Extraordinary Mission Month. The following paragraph from Pope Francis’s letter shares with us the context in which such an announcement was made.
“For the month of October 2019, I have asked that the whole Church revive her missionary awareness and commitment as we commemorate the centenary of the Apostolic Letter Maximum Illud of Pope Benedict XV (30 November 1919). Its farsighted and prophetic vision of the apostolate has made me realize once again the importance of renewing the Church’s missionary commitment and giving fresh evangelical impulse to her work of preaching and bringing to the world the salvation of Jesus Christ, who died and rose again”.
In this context I thought it appropriate to present a few quotes on evangelization which will inspire us rediscover our missionary responsibility – all the more relevant for Jesus Youth, which professes to be ‘a missionary movement at the service of the Church’.
