Mission Month

October is the month of the Holy Rosary and the month of missions, with Mission Sunday falling on October 22 this year. Coincidentally (!), that is also the feast day of Blessed Timothy Giaccardo, a contemporary missionary if there ever was one, since he was one of the first members of the Pauline Family.
The whole point of the Church is mission, so that is something entrusted to each and every one, and not just people who are involved in some "official" or particularly visible capacity. Now, more than ever, we need to be people in mission: people who know what God has done for us and who are not afraid to talk about it. But, as St.Paul says, "always let your speech be flavored with salt." What does that salt of mission taste like?
