So let us set out once more, illumined by our encounter with the risen Lord and prompted by his Spirit. Let us set out again with burning hearts, with our eyes open and our feet in motion. Let us set out to make other hearts burn with the word of God, to open the eyes of others to Jesus in the Eucharist, and to invite everyone to walk together on the path of peace and salvation that God, in Christ, has bestowed upon all humanity.
Our Lady of the Way, Mother of Christ’s missionary disciples and Queen of Missions, pray for us!
Pope Francis’ message for World Mission Sunday 2023.
He has chosen the theme inspired by the story of the disciples on the road to Emmaus in the Gospel of St Luke 24:13-35 “Hearts on Fire, Feet on the Move”.
