Alleviate suffering. Illuminate the mind. Ignite the Spirit.

Evangelization

Give Now

As missionaries for Christ, we serve the needy in ways that transcend material needs. We are called to seek out and touch, to open doors for the sacramental presence of God and to present the face of Christ. Catholic World Mission has a unique opportunity to help carve pathways to Christ in communities throughout the world. People in remote villages are hungry for community and thirsty for Christ. We can remove obstacles to experiencing Christ- opening the door to love of self and others. The first beatitude tells us, "blessed are the poor in spirit, for their's is the Kingdom of Heaven." Our poor deserve to be revered, as our Lord taught us when he sent His son, choosing a path of poverty and selflessness.

Spiritual poverty impedes an individual’s ability to ascend out of physical poverty. Our wise Pontiff tells us, “There is a close connection between poverty and evangelization... How much we have to learn from the wisdom of the poor! The poor provide us with a concrete opportunity to encounter Christ himself, and to touch his suffering flesh... Let us go out to meet them, look into their eyes and listen to them.”
- Pope Francis
