Our Calling to Evangelize

The Church is not a museum for historical nostalgia. Nor is the Church an archeological site from the time of Justinian. The Church is indeed the living body of Christ. She is dynamic and always permeated by the power of the Holy Spirit who descended on the disciples like a mighty wind. The Church must live with the conviction that She is always sent. Therefore, we must “go” and never stop until the end of time… [As] the Perfect Missionary our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ [said], “lift up your eyes and see how the fields are already white for harvest” (John 4:35).

Metropolitan Philip (Saliba) of New York
