World Mission Sunday will be observed this year on October 20.
Pope Francis describes the Year of Faith as having been “an important opportunity to strengthen our friendship with the Lord and our journey as a Church that preaches the Gospel with courage.” He goes on to say “Everyone should be able to experience the joy of being loved by God, the joy of salvation! It is a gift that one cannot keep to oneself, but it is to be shared. If we want to keep it only to ourselves, we will become isolated, sterile and sick Christians.”
