For building up the Body of Christ

“And he gave some as Apostles, others as prophets, others as evangelists, others as pastors and teachers, to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry, for building up the Body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of faith and knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the extent of the full stature of Christ.” (EPH 4: 11-13) 

They had different missions, different tasks and different peoples, but the same goal and mission: “to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry, for building up the Body of Christ.” Today we have the same mission, the same tasks and the same goal, but this time they are based on us and on our response. As mothers and fathers and as professionals and volunteers, we take care of building up the Body of Christ.

“We praise you, O God, we acclaim you as Lord; the glorious company of Apostles praise you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
