Pope Francis urged Catholics around the world to "listen to the call to mission" Sunday.
In his message for World Mission Day, released May 31, the pope invited people to discern their mission within the Church.
He said: "Let us ask ourselves: are we prepared to welcome the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives, to listen to the call to mission, whether in our life as married couples or as consecrated persons or those called to the ordained ministry, and in all the everyday events of life?"
"Are we willing to be sent forth at any time or place to witness to our faith in God the merciful Father, to proclaim the Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ, to share the divine life of the Holy Spirit by building up the Church?"
