Pope Francis: If You Feel the Call to be a Missionary, Do It!

Pope Francis: If You Feel the Call to be a Missionary, Do It! September 18, 2014


Pope Francis seems to be talking about missionaries who cross borders to share the Gospel. I agree with what he says about that. But I’d like to add that we need courageous people who will be missionaries for Christ to our own fallen culture, here in the “Christian West.”

Do you hear the call to speak more about your faith? Is God asking you to share Jesus with those around you? That is a tough call, but we all have received it by virtue of our own salvation.

We have the way to eternal life. If we do not share it with those who are perishing, we are not being polite, we are being terribly selfish.

    • Brunch is good. 🙂 Does you Church have Mass on Saturday evening? I had friends who went on Saturday —4:00 or 5:00, and didn’t go on Sunday AM.

  1. I agree, Theodore. My sister told me I was a bigot, short-sighted and hateful when I told her I pray for conversion of the Muslims daily.
