 Gospel of Christ as lived by Pope John Paul II

Pope John Paul II - Gospel of Christ - Make disciples   Make disciples - Pope John Paul II


Matt 28:19-20
19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even until the end of times."


To make disciples for Christ becomes the goal of every disciple and apostle. The Lord send his disciples and apostles to preach the Good News of the Kingdom of Heaven, he gave them powers to heal and to cast out evil spirits. Those who heard their words were hearing Christ words and renounced their evil deeds, repented and converted.

In order to conquer hearts we must first be conquered by Christ by submitting ourselves to his yoke. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light says the Lord (Matthew 11:30)

When people hear about Christ, hope is born in their hearts and when we plant the seed of the Word of God in them, the word germinates silently under the power of the Holy Spirit.

We are the light of the world says the Lord, our light must shine as the Holy Father popepapa John Paul demonstrated during his life.

The Ministries Derived from Holy Orders

22. In a primary position in the Church are the ordained ministries, that is, the ministries that come from the Sacrament of Orders. In fact, with the mandate to make disciples of all nations (cf. Mt 28:19), the Lord Jesus chose and constituted the apostles-seed of the People of the New Covenant and origin of the Hierarchy (65)-to form and to rule the priestly people. The mission of the Apostles, which the Lord Jesus continues to entrust to the Pastors of his people, is a true service, significantly referred to in Sacred Scripture as "diakonia", namely, service or ministry. The ministries receive the charism of the Holy Spirit from the Risen Christ, in uninterrupted succession from the apostles, through the Sacrament of Orders: from him they receive the authority and sacred power to serve the Church, acting in persona Christi Capitis (in the person of Christ, the Head)(66) and to gather her in the Holy Spirit through the Gospel and the Sacraments.
