As we commemorate World Mission Sunday

As a Roman Catholic I am reminded today of one of the important commemorations in catholic doctrine. Today the world joins Catholics worldwide in prayers and sacrifice to celebrate World Mission Sunday.

World Mission Sunday gives us the opportunity as Catholics to remind the faithful all over the world the great growth and needs, most importantly the fact that, by our Baptism, we are called to to be "missionaries of faith," hence supporting the work of the Church in our various parishes and dioceses.

I remember my days as an altar boy (I was motivated by my patron saint John Bosco to join the Altar Knights), I learnt that trio options are available for us to serve as Apostle of God. One is as an ordained, like the priests, the reverend sisters, or other ordained in the Catholic church. Two is by participation in the missionary work as non-ordained, like devoting your time to the missionary work to spread the gospel across the world. Third is by prayers. Praying for the previous duo who have committed their time to the missionary work of God, and this involves donating your resources to support God's missions.

Today we pray for the Church's missionary efforts, and as brethren united in the holy Catholic communion we give generously to the Society for propagation of the Faith we so much believe in. Let's affect positively today, the people, more importantly the vulnerable people, around us with the resources, no matter how little, we have been given freely by God. That will make a great difference!

I pray to Lord Jesus, in baptism he gave us a share in his mission; may we all joyfully proclaim his love to the ends of the earth; may we speak the truth at all times with courage; and may we through our love meet the needs of our people across the world. AMEN.
