For almost 50 years, the Catholic Church in the United States has observed National Migration Week. This week, we invite you to join us in reflecting on the daily challenges faced by migrants, immigrants, refugees, and survivors of human trafficking.
Regarding the place of migrants in God’s plan, Pope Francis has said, “The Kingdom of God is to be built with them, for without them it would not be the Kingdom that God wants. The inclusion of those most vulnerable is the necessary condition for full citizenship in God’s Kingdom.”

September 29th
Feast of Sts. Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, Archangels

The liturgy celebrates the Feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, archangels who are venerated in the tradition of the Church. Michael (Who is like God?) was the archangel who fought against Satan and all his evil angels, defending all the friends of God. He is the protector of all humanity from the snares of the devil. Gabriel (Strength of God) announced to Zachariah the forthcoming birth of John the Baptist, and to Mary, the birth of Jesus. His greeting to the Virgin, "Hail, full of grace," is one of the most familiar and frequent prayers of the Christian people.

So has the mission of the Church changed by this agreement? What is the statement of our mission it is from the Gospel and Scriptural. Catholic Church mission statement? ​The Mission of the Catholic Church is to "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit." We live out our mission with the mission of the Catholic Church. www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtL_xeRoyVU

The Eucharist is the “the source and summit of the Christian Life.” (Lumen Gentium, no. 11). In the Eucharistic Liturgy and our prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, we encounter God’s presence in a personal and profound ways. But the Eucharist is also social. “A Eucharist which does not pass over into the concrete practice of love is intrinsically fragmented.” (Pope Benedict XVI)
We experience the Eucharist as a community.
The Eucharist awakens us to our dignity and to that of others.
The Eucharist unifies and heals divisions.
The Eucharist sensitizes us to those who suffer.
The Eucharist challenges us to recognize and confront structure of sin.
The Eucharist prepares us for mission.
The Eucharist propels us forth to transform the world.
(USCCB: Sacraments and Social Mission)

Father in heaven,

what privilege you have given us

to seek the Lord of heaven and earth.

By your grace, we bow in prayer before a loving God.

By your mercy, our prayers and supplications are heard.

Your Holy Spirit inspires us to come to your throne.

We seek daily bread, forgiveness of sins, delivery from evil.

We also seek your blessings and comfort on others.

So we lift up all those whose burdens press on our hearts.

Today we have in mind the refugee.

So many are moved to flee because of conflict.

They carry little but hope for a safe place to live.

Give them refreshed lives, Father.

Be their hope as you are ours.

Give them peace and healing and comfort.

Help us practice hospitality when the need arises.

Help us open homes and hearts.

Bless the world’s displaced, Father.

Hear our prayer for your children.

And thank you, good Father, for your love

that encourages us to raise our voices in your courts.

Amen

The sacraments the Church celebrates are signs of grace that make a deeper reality present to us. One reality we encounter through the sacraments is Christ's presence in the Church community, his body. This recognition of Christ's presence in the community should lead to a stronger awareness of being sent on mission to engage in concrete, love-inspired action in the world.
