Pontifical Mission Societies Malawi - October 2020
Baptised and Sent.
Here I am Lord, Send Me!
We proclaim the Gospel to the ends of the world.
After 100 years of Catholicism in Malawi, we are supposed to demonstrate a true Catholic spirit – a missionary spirit: we have to be self reliant (use our gifts) in preaching the Gospel.
Each Christian is supposed to use the God given spiritual and material gifts to spread the faith. The gifts we receive from God are to be generously used for the salvation of others.
As Christians, we should not only be concerned with our own good or our own salvation. We should be concerned with the salvation of others. On baptism we become missionaries. We are sent by Christ to go and proclaim the Gospel to the whole world. With this mandate, our missionary focus is not only within our community but also outside our community. "Here am I, send me" - Isaiah 6:8
