Animation for the Missions!

First heard at Baptism, the call to share our faith — to be missionaries — is truly connected to every moment of every day. The Society for the Propagation of the Faith-Mission Corps offers young Catholics and their families opportunities to make those daily connections:

Remember too your own call to be missionary — and make mission a part of the moments of your day, above all, through your prayers, and through the sacrifices you encourage among the young. As the National Directory for Catechesis reminds us: “The word of God nourishes both evangelizers and those who are being evangelized so that each one may continue to grow in his or her Christian life” (no. 17).

Message of His Holiness Pope Francis for Lent 2016

 

Catechists, Religious Educators and Youth Ministers:

 

During this Year of Consecrated Life, Pope Francis, a religious himself, invites the Church to recollect the history of consecrated life, reflect on its present variety and participate in its future. To celebrate the Year of Consecrated Life in the United States and respond to Holy Father’s wishes, we have created resources for high school age groups, highlighting their missionary discipleship.

The materials include a Teacher’s Guide, Student Activities, a PowerPoint Presentation and suggestions for a community event.

World Mission Rosary Videos - For Youth and High School Students

 

In February of 1951, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (national director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith from 1950 to 1966), in a radio address (The Catholic Hour), inaugurated the World Mission Rosary. He saw the need for us to pray not just for ourselves, but for the whole world, and especially for those who are poor and vulnerable at home and around the world.

In English...

Each decade of that World Mission Rosary calls to mind an area where the Church continues her evangelizing mission: green for the forests and grasslands of Africa; blue for the ocean surrounding the islands of the Pacific; white symbolizing Europe, the seat of the Holy Father, shepherd of the world; red calling to mind the fire of faith that brought missionaries to the Americas and yellow, the morning light of the East, for Asia.

Archbishop Sheen himself linked this Rosary to the missionary work of the Church and to the Holy Father. Praying this Rosary, he explained in that radio broadcast, would "aid the Holy Father and his Society for the Propagation of the Faith by supplying him with practical support, as well as prayers, for the poor mission territories of the world." "When the Rosary is completed, one has...embraced all continents, all people in prayer," he added. "Won't you please make a tour of the world on your World Mission Rosary?"

Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Link to Readings

Today we celebrate the Body and Blood of Christ which was given for our salvation. We recall the Last Supper when “(Jesus) said, ‘This is My body.... This is the new covenant in My blood. Do this…in remembrance of Me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until He comes” (1 Corinthians 11:24-26). This feast, often called Corpus Christi, is a time to offer thanks for sacrifice of our Redeemer’s Body and Blood, both on the cross and in the Holy Eucharist.

More than that, we need to contemplate our own lives within the Body of Christ. As members of the Church, we share in the life of our Lord in an extraordinary sense. The Son of God came to save us from sin and death and grant us eternity with Him. Now we must follow His way of faith, hope and love and share Him with others each day we are blessed to live.

Suggested missionary action:  Let us thank our Lord for the gift of His Body and Blood by receiving Communion and revering the Blessed Sacrament. And let us pray for all who believe in Christ our Savior.

Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Link to Readings 

At the beautiful encounter between the Blessed Virgin Mary and her cousin Elizabeth known as the Visitation, we discover two holy, humble women. They offer each other support as they reveal their dedication to serving Almighty God. Elizabeth salutes Mary and honors her fidelity to our Lord. “And Mary said: ‘My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for He has looked with favor on His lowly servant. From this day all generations will call me blessed” (Luke 1:46-48). The loving will and infinite power of God brought the mother of Jesus our Redeemer and the mother of John the Baptist to this memorable event. 

God is the heart of all generosity and mercy. Like Mary and Elizabeth, let us serve our Lord by emulating His goodness – for love of Him and His people everywhere.

Suggested missionary action:  We can honor our Blessed Mother while asking her to intercede for the Church’s missionaries and by offering the World Mission Rosary regularly.
