Manila – “In this year marked by the suffering and the challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the missionary journey of the whole Church continues”: this is the passage of Pope Francis’ Message for World Mission Day 2020 that the Church in the Philippines has chosen to sensitize the faithful during the Missionary Month. As Mgr. Esteban Lo, priest from Manila and National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies in the Philippines, told Agenzia Fides, preparations for World Mission Day on October 18 are continuing “together with missionaries from all over the world, , especially preparing to live the annual Eucharistic celebration”.
