The harvest is great

On the centenary of Maximum Illud, Pope Benedict XV's letter to the Church on carrying the Gospel message throughout the world, we focus this Advent on our mission as people baptised and sent into the world to each play our part in sharing the Good News.

The Word of God Matthew 24: 22-24 The Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

 

The teaching of our Church 

There still remain in the world multitudes of people who dwell in darkness and in the shadow of death. Pope Benedict XV, Maximum Illud, 1919

It is important to ask ourselves certain questions about our identity and our responsibility as believers in a world marked by confusion, disappointment and frustration, and torn by numerous fratricidal wars that unjustly target the innocent. Pope Francis, World Mission Day 2017

 

Salesian thought

There are many people to whom the Gospel has not yet been proclaimed. Many youngsters need a friend, a brother, a father, whom they can find in the Salesians they meet.  Fr Ángel Fernández Artime SBD
