Presider’s Page for Mission Sunday, 24 October (30th Sunday in Ordinary Time)

This year’s Mission Sunday theme suggests that “We cannot remain silent”. Those were the brave words of St Peter and St John in the Acts of the Apostles, when even in the face of persecution, they insisted: “We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20). We pray to have their courage in our country, today.
In this Sunday’s Mass, we come to God, who gives the blind new sight.
