Each member contributes

Each member contributesThe unity in diversity of Christ’s body means that the Church can be ‘likened to an “organic” communion’, or ‘a living and functioning body.’ This body is characterised by ‘a diversity and a complementarity of vocations and states in life, of ministries, of charisms and responsibilities.’ Such diversity and complementarity enriches the life of the Church, whereby each member is enabled to make a valuable contribution, according to the gifts distributed by the Holy Spirit.

(p. 27 Faithful Stewards of God's Grace, 2018)

Every Christian is a missionary to the extent that he or she has encountered the love of God in Christ Jesus.’ Pope Francis challenges each and every Christian to be actively engaged in carrying on the work of Christ, to be personally involved as ‘missionary disciples’, rather than leaving the work ‘to be carried out by professionals while the rest of the faithful would simply be passive recipients.’
