The Pope’s Call to Mission

During his first overseas trip, Pope Francis encouraged all Catholics to become animated missioners without borders.

“Where does Jesus send us?” he asked World Youth Day pilgrims on July 28 in Rio de Janerio, Brazil. “There are no borders, no limits: He sends us to everyone.”

Will you answer the Pope’s call to mission?
