“All of us are commissioned by Christ to tell others by word and deed of God’s mercy and love, and try to bring them into God’s family, the church, so that they too may experience that love (Mt 28:19). This is not only a responsibility given us by Christ, but a privilege which we should be glad to carry out in thanksgiving and love. Since we ourselves have come to know God and to hold the Christian faith through others, we can show our thanks by being the means through which others may come to know God and believe.” This is our primary Christian Vocation.
