It has been said that the Church of God does not have a mission, but the mission of God has a Church. Seen from this vantage point, which is that of the Popes for the last 70 years, the Church is not just a museum for saints but is a field hospital for humanity. The Church's identity is a missionary, an evangelist, and a servant to all. From the first days of Christ’s public life to the moment of his resurrection he never ceased gathering to himself men and women to be his disciples. This Lent we will explore five images used in Scripture to explain the nature and mission of the Church and, thus of all those who belong to her.
