Pope Francis receives the National Directors of the Pontifical Mission Societies



Pope Francis on Friday met with the National Directors of the Pontifical Mission Societis, from all over the world. And in his address to them the Holy father spoke of the urgent need to carry out the work of the church of preaching the Gospel, and the particular role that the Pontifical Mission Societies play in effecting it. The Holy Father noted that the Missionary Works are also called “pontifical” because “they are at the Bishop of Rome's direct disposal, with the specific purpose of acting so that the precious gift of the Gospel might be offered to all.” Suzy Hodges reports.
