**Today is World Mission Sunday!  In announcing his decision to declare a Holy Year of Mercy, Pope Francis said, "Dear brothers & sisters, I have often thought about how the Church might make clear its mission of being a witness to mercy."  Supporting the young churches throughout the world with your prayers and generous gifts is indeed a merciful witness of this mission.  The collection today will help missionaries offer the poor of these areas practical help as they share the mercy of God.  It will ensure the development of local dioceses, & support the work of priests, religious & lay leaders who serve those on the margins & in most need.  Extend your merciful witness to the whole world through your gift in today's collection for the Society for the  Propagation of Faith.

 “…for whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”    Luke 18:14  Pride and ego is the root cause of most of our sins.  Thinking your time is so valuable, your talent is better than anyone else and your money gives you status is another way of making those things “gods” before God.  Remember all those gifts were God-given.  Instead we should be humbled by God’s abundant generosity and our hearts should be filled with gratitude.
