Mission at the service of people
A faith that does not go beyond pious words and theological thoughts is dead. Jesus warns disciples who cry “Lord, Lord,”but do not do His Father’s will”. (Mt 7, 21-23) The letter of St. James condemns Christians who “dishonour the poor” and refuse to give them what they need to live. “Faith without works is dead.” (Jm 2)
The mission of the Church has always the whole person in view: body, mind and soul.
