On the eve of the diocesan celebration of World Mission Day (Sunday 24th October), Archbishop Monsignor Mario Delpini delivers the missionary mandate to priests, religious and people who make themselves available for the proclamation of the Gospel in the sister Churches scattered throughout the world.
The handing over of the Crucifix for departing people, the welcoming of those who are introduced into the Diocese of Milan and the handing over of the Rule of life by the young people agree with the prospect of giving back what we have received in life and in the horizon of the missio ad gentes, which constitutes a provocation for all believers to recognize themselves as missionary disciples.
In his Message for World Mission Day 2021, Pope Francis expresses himself in this way about the importance of bearing witness to one's faith: "Dear brothers and sisters, when we experience the power of God's love, when we recognize his presence as Father in the our personal and community life, we cannot help but announce and share what we have seen and heard».
