Next weekend, October 22nd is for World Mission Sunday. This year’s message from Pope Francis
“Hearts on fire, feet on the move,” is inspired by our Lord’s encounter with the disciples on the Road
to Emmaus found in the Gospel of Luke 24:13-35.
In choosing this theme, Pope Francis reaffirmed that World Mission Sunday is a privileged
opportunity for us to foster missionary cooperation on both the spiritual and material levels.
With our daily prayer and our generous donation on World Mission Sunday, we all bear witness to
the compassion of our Lord Jesus Christ, making Him present in every continent, country, city, family, and heart.
