As we hear in the gospel, Christ proclaims that "all things have been handed over to me by my Father." Jesus was given, and accepted, a mission of love and salvation for the world. As members of Christ's Body through Baptism, we too participate in that mission, whether we are in church or at the store. For us, every moment of life is an apostolic moment; we are sent in to the world for the sake of the world.

Answering that call is intentional discipleship in action--living our lives so that others might encounter Christ and find rest beneath his yoke. Not an easy task as we try and balance the oftentimes competing demands of our own pursuits--yet our mission field is precisely those areas of life which we inhabit, bringing the love and the healing of Christ to all those we meet.

How prepared do you feel for this mission?
