' -"=1  Diocese of Evansville The Chancery P.O }hx 4169 Evansvilhl. hldiana 47724-[1169 Mission Sunday 1990 Most R*w. (;arald A. Ge.el/inger Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ, How often you and I are greeted with such familiar wordsl Today's consideration of the Catholic Missions in the World gives me the opportunity to remind us of the underlying meaning of that greet- ing. So often today we hear the world referred to as a "global communi- ty." Modern transportation and communication have indeed put us in touch with people of other nations and races around the globe. All peoples, through the ability to travel and communicate, are now seen as our brothers and sisters who just happen to live in different parts of our global community. Many of our brothers and sisters have a special bond with us because they, like us, believe in Jesus. Others do not have this bond with us because they have not heard of Jesus, even in these our modern times. Many others simply do not believe in Jesus. Through the worldwide mission effort of the Church, you and I have not only the opportunity hut also the obligation to proclaim the gospel to those who have never heard it, to support our brothers and sisters in need, and to pray for those who go to the missions on our behalf. Be generous in your giving todayl Be steadfast in your love for all who follow Jesus as well as those who do not. Pray daily for those who serve in the missions throughout the world in our place. May the Lord bless our missionary efforts to proclaim the gospel and to nurture faith in Jesus. Most Faithfully yours in Christ, A Revere" Gerld A.
