GO, TEACH, MAKE DISCIPLES: Sourcebook for Mission Education and Animation contains a wide variety of biblical, theological, catechetical, and pastoral resources to facilitate a “missionary renewal” of all pastoral agents in the Church.  Here one finds twelve presentations of basic mission catechesis, inspiring quotes from popes and saints, lyrics of mission songs, a bibliography of locally published mission resources—all designed to facilitate a deeper awareness and commitment to evangelization, which Saint Pope Paul VI noted is “the vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity….  The task of evangelizing all people constitutes the essential mission of the Church” (Evangelii Nuntiandi 14).

Pope Francis asserts: “Every Christian is a missionary to the extent that he or she has encountered the love of God in Christ Jesus; we no longer say that we are ‘disciples’ and ‘missionaries,’ but rather that we are always ‘missionary disciples’.”  Indeed, all members of the People of God are “agents of evangelization”; this reality “calls for personal involvement on the part of each of the baptized” (Evangelii Gaudium 120).  

This book has been designed with the widest possible audience in mind.  Priests will find rich sources to enhance their homily and retreat reflections.  Catechists and Religious Education Teachers will appreciate the materials as they prepare their lesson plans.  Religious men and women will draw insights for the deepening of their vocation and mission witnessing.  Missionaries, parents, and the youth will be enriched in their faith journey as well as in their life of prayer and meditation.  All are personally invited to: Go, Teach, and Make Disciples.

Kindly forward / share this poster to as many people as possible so that despite the pandemic, nay, precisely because of the pandemic, more people will join Pope Francis in praying for the mission of the Church around the world, especially in those places where the situations are far worse than ours.

Just in case some among us still have a little to share to support the material needs of the mission may they be encouraged to do so. As we approach the celebration of the 500th Year of Christianity in our country, may we more and more rejoice in and be blessed by the spirit of our chosen theme, “Gifted to Give” (Mt 10:8).

“The mission that God entrusts to each one of us leads us from fear and introspection to a renewed realization that we find ourselves precisely when we give ourselves to others.” (Pope Francis, Message for World Mission Day 2020)
