ARGENTINA: We Are All Missionaries “By Nature”

“Being a missionary is a vocation, a call and an election,” said His Excellency Monsignor José Vicente Conejero Gallego to Agenzia Fides, who arrived as a missionary in the Argentine diocese of Formosa in 1976, of which he has been a Bishop since 1997.

For the Bishop, the Extraordinary Missionary Month of October 2019 represents an opportunity to “encourage the whole Church, which by its very nature is missionary.” 

From this it emerges that “the fundamental objective of this Month is to sensitize the entire ecclesial community, the entire People of God, all the baptized, as the motto says, baptized and sent.” Finally, Monsignor José Vicente Conejero Gallego hopes that “in the particular Churches, we can all become aware of being missionaries by nature.”
