On May 15, 2016, the Solemnity of Pentecost, the Holy See released the Message of the Holy Father for the 90th World Mission Sunday which will be celebrated October 23, 2016. In his Message, on the theme Missionary Church, Witness of Mercy, the Holy Father "invites us to consider the missio ad gentes as a great, immense work of mercy, both spiritual and material. On this World Mission Sunday, all of us are invited to 'go out' as missionary disciples, each generously offering their talents, creativity, wisdom and experience in order to bring the message of God's tenderness and compassion to the entire human family."
