World Mission Sunday

“Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?” - Luke 24:13

As we celebrate World Mission Sunday this year, Pope Francis has asked us to look again at the story of the disciples on the road to Emmaus. This passage reflects the journey of all missionary disciples, and through it we can be renewed. He says, “Let us set out to make other hearts burn with the word of God, to open the eyes of others to Jesus in the Eucharist, and to invite everyone to walk together on the path of peace and salvation.”

This worldwide celebration of our call to mission reminds us that we all contribute to the missionary movement of the Church. We offer our prayers and activities, material offerings, and our personal witness. On this day, we pray and reflect on the mission of the Church and our own personal call to mission. We are also invited to support the Pontifical Mission Societies, which foster missionary cooperation on both the spiritual and material levels for the areas of our world most in need of the Good News of God’s love.
