Annually, the next to last Sunday of October marks the Church’s Eucharistic celebration for the Missions, World Mission Sunday.
In his message for this year’s celebration on October 21, Pope Francis explains that “life is a mission.” “Each one of us is called to reflect on this fact: ‘I am a mission on this Earth; that is the reason why I am here in this world’ (Evangelii Gaudium 273),” he writes. Focusing on young people, he notes: “In speaking to you, I also address all Christians who live out in the Church the adventure of their life as children of God.”
Deacon David O’Connor, the new diocesan Director for the Department of Catholic Cemeteries, is particularly adamant about one thing pertaining to funerals of the faithful – getting the word out about the beauty inherent in the Catholic rite, and how it ministers to both the deceased and those who mourn them.
