About Pope Francis' Intention for May
"That the lay faithful may fulfill their specific mission, by responding with creativity to the challenges that face the world today."
Consider the first people Jesus called to follow Him: fishermen, a tax collector, a zealot…all ordinary laymen. Consider how many of the saints were, essentially, ordinary people! You are baptized into the Body of Christ for a purpose, and countless saints have gone before you in faithful service to Jesus, living out His call to be “the salt of the earth…the light of the world…a city on a mountain” which “cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:13-16)
