THE MSP PRIESTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE US

MARKED WITH THE SIGN OF FAITH

This document corrected the false conclusion that some people drew from reading the Declaration on Non-Christians Religion, namely that missionary activities aimed at bringing non-Christians to the water of baptism is no longer necessary. It affirmed the church's commitment to the missionary mandate of Christ who sent his disciples to "make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19), baptizing then in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. It advocated for a vigorous outreach aimed at converting more souls to Christ and gave some practical suggestions on how the missionary enterprise could be organized in order to bring about a greater success.
