Since the time of the Apostles, Christians, such as yourself, have been called to spread the blessings of love through faith, hope and charity. All followers of Jesus Christ are called to be apostles. All of us are sent forth (cf. Matthew 28:18-20) as “ambassadors for Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:20). By preaching the good news, you are helping Jesus work miracles in places where miracles are desperately needed.Read More
