The Holy See released on May 24, 2015, the Solemnity of Pentecost, the Message of the Holy Father for the 2015 World Mission Sunday on October 18. In his Message, the Holy Father writes that "the Church's mission is faced by the challenge of meeting the needs of all people to return to their roots and to protect the values of their respective cultures. This means knowing and respecting other traditions and philosophical systems, and realizing that all peoples and cultures have the right to be helped from within their own traditions to enter into the mystery of God's wisdom and to accept the Gospel of Jesus, who is light and transforming strength for all cultures."
