"The number of those who do not know Christ and do not belong to the Church is constantly on the increase. When we consider the immense portion of humanity which is loved by the Father and for whom He sent His Son, the urgency of the Church's mission is obvious. No believer, no institution of the Church can avoid this supreme duty: to proclaim Christ to all peoples" John Paul II.
