“Mission at the heart of the Christian faith” is theme of World Mission Day message

VATICAN CITY – The Holy See Press Office has released Pope Francis’s message for the 91st World Mission Day, which will take place on October 22.

The theme of the message is “mission at the heart of the Christian faith.”

“The Church is missionary by nature; otherwise, she would no longer be the Church of Christ, but one group among many others that soon end up serving their purpose and passing away,” the Pope said in his message, which has the following sections:

  • Mission and the transformative power of the Gospel of Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life
  • Mission and the kairos of Christ
  • Mission inspires a spirituality of constant exodus, pilgrimage, and exile
  • Young people, the hope of mission
  • The service of the Pontifical Mission Societies
  • Carrying out our mission with Mary, Mother of Evangelisation –
