All Christians, thanks to the “anointing” received in baptism and in Confirmation, can, indeed, should apply the Lord's words to themselves, believing firmly that the Spirit “is” also upon them and sends them to proclaim the Good News, sustaining with His power every initiative of apostolate. An exemplary answer to the universal call to take responsibility for missionary activity was given in the past by Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus. The life and teaching of Theresa demonstrate the close bond between mission and contemplation. In fact there can be no mission without a life of intense prayer and communion with the Lord and his sacrifice on the Cross. (Blsd. Pope John Paul II, World Mission Day Message 1997)
