[Catholic Saskatoon News] – The CCCB (Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops) Standing Committee for Catholic Movements and Associations released a message for Pentecost, Sunday 9 June 2019.
The message points ahead to Pope Francis’ invitation to live October 2019 as an Extraordinary Missionary Month.
“As members of movements and associations of faithful, we readily head the call to be marked by personal holiness and new creativity so as to draw our world to the One who makes all things new by his Paschal Mystery. When we reflect on our own personal experience of faith, we call to mind those who guided us on the journey, so that we take our vocation seriously as people who are baptized and sent. Throughout the Extraordinary Missionary Month of October, we will be offered a number of brief biographies of missionary witnesses as well as daily commentaries on the Word of God, so as to awaken our communities to missionary responsibility. Let us be reminded that our Christian identity is strengthened as we give Christ to others.”
