|Vatican||TELL PEOPLE THAT GOD LOVES THEM: POPE|
The best thing the Church can do for people is evangelise them. This is the message which the National Director of Catholic Mission in Australia, Fr Brian Bock, brought back from the Pope's address to the recent world General Meeting of National Mission Directors in Rome.|
The Pope said: "The evangelising mission is the primary service which the Church can render to every individual and to the whole of humanity... The proclamation of God's unconditional love for every person is a task arising from the recognition of its absolute [saving power]."
Meanwhile Fr Brock said the meeting was successful. "It allowed us an opportunity to consider how we had progressed in the previous year in relation to the Church's mission, and in the substantial task of collecting much-needed funds to assist mission dioceses throughout the world."
