In The Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis challenges all of us to become missionary disciples.

What is a missionary disciple?

Through the grace of the Holy Spirit, we encounter Jesus in the Scripture, in the Sacraments, and in every person we meet. We open our hearts and minds to Jesus and the Gospel message. Our encounter with Jesus transforms us and helps us to live and act in a way that witnesses to and invites people to share in the Love, Joy, and Peace of Christ. This is the work of the Church, but it begins with each individual and his or her relationship with Jesus.
