We don’t have a mission. No, we are a mission:
Each saint is a mission. God wants to speak to the world by your life (Pope Francis).
God can speak to people in a variety of ways, but it seems his preferred method is through ‘witnesses.’ Upon meeting us, it would be good if people said, ‘I like what they have.’
Paul, Aquila and Priscilla were tentmakers and they worked together (Acts 18):
It is our mission to do our work the best we can (Pope Francis).
There is no dichotomy between our work and our mission.
