In October 2019, Pope Francis calls us all to
renew our missionary commitment through
a special month of prayer and action. The
following prayers have been inspired by
the EMM2019 aims: 1. To encourage Cath-
olics into a deeper rela-
tionship with Jesus
through prayer. 2. To
look to, and learn from,
the actions and sacrific-
es of our saints, martyrs and living mission-
aries. 3. To financially support overseas
mission, through Missio. 4. To rediscover
and renew our understanding of overseas
mission (missio ad gentes).
