Scripture Notes – Sunday 10th October 2021

We Cannot Remain Silent – We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard (Acts 4:20)

Mission Month October 2021

Mission Month 2021

World Mission Sunday is the Holy Father’s annual appeal for spiritual and financial support so that the life-giving work of overseas mission and missionaries can continue. It always falls on the second last Sunday in October, meaning this year it will be celebrated over the weekend of Sunday 24th.

Its theme ‘We Cannot Remain Silent – We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard (Acts 4:20)’ is twofold.

  1. It is a message of hope – Jesus Christ is risen and we cannot keep his love, compassion, and mercy to ourselves.
  2. It also challenges us to stand up and speak out on behalf of those who are weaker. All too often, the voices that need to be heard are not the loudest. For them, we cannot remain silent.
