Today, with all our sisters and brothers throughout the world we are asked to remember that we are called to share in the Church’s mission of proclaiming the Good News of Christ to the ends of the world.
Jesus is inviting and exhorting us to pray for the missionaries. He is asking us to be evangelizers through words and deeds, examples and life witnessing. Mission is not difficult if we dont grow discourage and lose heart in speaking about Jesus. If we remain faithful to the Lord, the first missionary who doesnt allow us to be powerless but powerful in speaking about him. When we are faced with suffering and persecution what is importanti s to be strong and hang in there. Perseverance is the key to all kinds of situation in the Missions.
St Paul tells us, “Proclaim the message and welcome or unwelcome, insist on it,” we have to recognize that we are bearers of the Good News. This task very often means that we are going to have to not just “insist” but also Persist.
