We’re missionaries. That’s our primary vocation.

“We have a duty as Catholics to study and understand the world around us. We have a duty not just to penetrate and engage it, but to convert it to Jesus Christ. That work belongs to all of us equally: clergy, laity, and religious. We’re missionaries. That’s our primary vocation; it’s hardwired into our identity as Christians. God calls each of us to different forms of service in his Church. But we’re all equal in Baptism. And we all share the same mission of bringing the Gospel to the world, and bringing the world to the Gospel.” ~Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, OFM, Cap.; Strangers In A Strange Land
