#ShortNews: Be Missionaries, Not Spectators

“We want you to rekindle your missionary spirit in order to proclaim Christ’s Salvation everywhere”, write the Bishops of Burundi, in the message for the Extraordinary Missionary Month which opens today October 1st. In the document sent to Fides, read in all the parishes of the country on Sunday 29 September, it is recalled that “Pope Francis announced the Extraordinary Missionary Month so as to commemorate the centenary of the promulgation of the Apostolic Letter Maximum Illud by Pope Benedict XV”.

“The Church needs a new impetus, a new will and a new hope in missionary pastoral” the message emphasizes.

“Do not be spectators, be missionaries together with the Virgin Mary, Star of the Missionaries and Queen of the Apostles, because it is our dignity that we received in our baptism” the message concludes.
