MISSION INTENTION - AUGUST



That young people, called to follow Christ, may be willing to proclaim and bear witness to the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
"Young people in particular, I appeal to you: bear witness to your faith through the digital world!....Employ these new technologies to make the Gospel known, so that the Good News of God’s infinite love for all people, will resound in new ways across our increasingly technological world!" - Pope Benedict XVI, Vatican City, May 20, 2009
"If you find your sustenance in Christ, my dear young people, and if you live profoundly in him as did the Apostle Paul, you will not be able to resist speaking about him and making him known and loved by many of your friends and contemporaries." - Pope Benedict XVI, Message for World Youth Day, February 22, 2009
"If Jesus has become your hope, communicate this to others with your joy and your spiritual, apostolic and social engagement. Let Christ dwell within you, and having placed all your faith and trust in Him, spread this hope around you. Make choices that demonstrate your faith." - Pope Benedict XVI, Message for World Youth Day, February 22, 2009
"The main task for us all is that of a new evangelization aimed at helping younger generations to rediscover the true face of God, who is Love. To you young people, who are in search of a firm hope, I address the very words that Saint Paul wrote to the persecuted Christians in Rome at that time: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Rom 15:13)." - Pope Benedict XVI, Message for World Youth Day, February 22, 2009
"Continue to witness to the Gospel every day and commit yourselves generously in the next missionary initiatives in the Diocese of Rome." - Pope Benedict XVI Encourages Youth to Evangelize Hometowns, Vatican City, October 7, 2007
"Those who allow themselves to be led by the Spirit understand that placing oneself at the service of the Gospel is not an optional extra, because they are aware of the urgency of transmitting this Good News to others...I assure you that the Spirit of Jesus today is inviting you young people to be bearers of the good news of Jesus to your contemporaries."- Pope Benedict XVI, Papal Message for World Youth Day '08, July 24, 2007
