Quito (Agenzia Fides) - "This year we celebrate World Mission Sunday (DOMUND) in the midst of the Covid -19 epidemic and also during this time God accompanies us through the Pontifical Mission Societies of Ecuador. Our missionary animation has not stopped even during this period, even though we can count on very little digital media", said Sister Marina Aguilar Vázquez RM, National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies in Ecuador.
"We have prepared all the necessary material with the sole purpose of organizing World Mission Sunday. The situation is not easy, especially with regard to the collections, since we are in a difficult economic situation. We have set up a donation account and it was possible to deliver some envelopes with the donations to the various ecclesiastical jurisdictions", continues the National Director.
"God knows the heart of man, he knows the urgent need to receive and hear something else in the midst of a painful reality. God trusts those who have been sent in his name to find out what is missing in the heart of man today, to fill this void, this loneliness of mankind. The message of Pope Francis on World Mission Sunday 2020 shows us the missionary path of the Church at this moment", concluded Sister Marina. (CE) (Agenzia Fides, 23/9/2020)
