Mission Sunday

Last week, Malala Yousafzai, the 17 year-old Pakistani girl, who was shot in the head but survived,was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

She has a mission in life and have now become an inspiration to many thousands of young people all over the world. Around the world, there are millions of people working for justice, peace, human rights, the dig-nity of women and children, and work to end drug and human trafficking, and sex slavery.

These agents of change look upon the world and see human suffering and misery and say, “I will try and change it, if I could save even one child, one person, I have done great good. My life will be worth a human life.” Thousands of people have become missionaries and volunteers to be an agent of change for others.

Many with a mission are inspired and motivated by the man from Nazareth, Jesus the Son of God, the teacher, healer, a washer of feet, a social revolutionary, a man of peace and a friend to all. We can help those in missions by supporting their work. Never think there is only misery and evil. There is abundant good everywhere, we just have to look and join in. The collection at all Masses this weekend will be for Mission work.
