St. Therese of the Child Jesus –
Jesus sent his disciples of every town and place. Owing to our baptism we not only can but must assume our missionary calling in our specific circumstances. The missionary vocation is a many-splendored reality that transcends race, gender, age, wealth, and so on. It looks only to the common good, insisting that community trumps individualism. The challenge is to heed the call and thereby enrich others.
