Last Sunday was Mission Sunday. I'd like to share with you some words from an article featured on the misallete, recounting the life of Fr. Jimmy Afable as a missionary to the Solomon Islands who wrote his book "Sharing the Gift of Faith" after he came back home. His thoughts on his 'journey' could have been the sentiments of a pilgrim too:

"In other words, I believe it is not the length of time I've spent with people that matters, but the quality of involvement I achieve with them. When the time of my particular leave-taking comes, it is the vitality with which I have walked with the people in the twists and turns of their lives that will matter to them and to me. What will matter is the manner in which I have enabled them to recognize and heed the call of God who has always loved them..."
