The Church invites believers of all ages to grow in human and Christian maturity by allowing the Gospel of Christ to illumine their lives.
This is our Baptismal mission (Matthew 28:19): to bring Christ to others; to invite them to become disciples of Jesus. St Peter reminds us: “but in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect” (1 Ptr 3:15). For this reason, we need to ‘put on the mind of Christ’, to be ‘conformed’ to His teaching (1 Cor 2:16).
