Vatican City – “The profound meaning of World Mission Day is to keep the meaning of mission in all the baptized alive. In this historical moment, the element of the universality of the Church, which concerns the whole world, gains more force. As humanity lives through the time of the pandemic, it is possible to understand how deeply we are connected to each other. World Mission Day, at an ecclesial level, wants to help keep alive the element of the universality of faith: no one believes alone, we are all linked by faith in Christ, regardless of where we live”. This is what Archbishop Giampietro Dal Toso, Assistant Secretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples and President of the Pontifical Mission Societies says to the Agenzia Fides, in view of the celebration of World Mission Day which will be celebrated on Sunday, October 18, 2020.
