World Mission Sunday!
This weekend, parishes worldwide celebrate World Mission Sunday. The kindness shown will help overseas missionaries to continue to share the love of God with some of the worlds most marginalised and vulnerable people. Thank you for supporting in whatever way you can, and please remember it is more than an appeal for financial help. Missionaries also need spiritual support. On World Mission Sunday Missionaries take great strength in knowing that the faithful of the world are keeping them in their thoughts and prayers. Help right now. Please donate €4 by texting the word ‘Mission’ to 50300 or donate at www.missio.ie or call 01 4972035. To learn more, go to www.missio.ie. On this day we think of struggling parishes in the growing church throughout Africa, South America, Asia, and Oceania. The collection taken up today on World Mission Sunday is a crucial lifeline to all the dioceses and aids communities to build schools, health centres, parish halls and churches. It also supports in the education of future leaders in faith. World Mission Sunday is also a time for the faithful of the world to show their appreciation towards the work of overseas Missionaries. The generosity offered will be used to support Missionary activities in over 1,100 struggling dioceses, mostly in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.


Mission Sunday: You Will Be My Witnesses
We are often defensive in our relationships with others. We are reluctant to let another see us as we see ourselves. Occasionally we meet someone with whom we can be totally open and know we will be accepted. With whom have you had that kind of a relationship? What was it like for you to have that freedom? Likewise with God, when we come to prayer pretending to be better than we are, we are hiding from God. What difference does it make when you pray to God, acknowledging your faults and limitations? Have you ever found that when you are humble in this way in prayer, God lifts you up? The parable is also a cautionary tale against judging others negatively on the basis of externals. Perhaps God, who looks into the heart, sees them differently. When have you discovered there was more to another person than the negative picture you got from first impressions? What lessons did you learn for yourself from this?
