Item description for What Is the Mission of the Church?: A Guide for Catholics by Roger P. Schroeder...
Overview Offers guidance and inspiration to individuals, parishes, and dioceses grappling with the reality that mission begins at home-and in the heart. Father Roger Schroeder begins this book with the words, "Jesus Christ was God's love, forgiveness, salvation, healing justice, and compassion in the flesh, and he re-established humanity's right relationship with God through his life, death and resurrection. We Christians need to continue that mission in our flesh." Distilling nearly fifty years of mission work and teaching from the United States to the Philippines, Papua New Guinea to China, Roger Schroeder offers the wisdom he has gained along with the wisdom of centuries of church teaching. The result is a book to help individuals, parishes, dioceses, and national churches grapple practically and put themselves heart and soul into the mission of being Christ in our suffering world.

The result is a book to help individuals, parishes, dioceses, and national churches grapple practically and put themselves heart and soul into the mission of being Christ in our suffering world.
