Missionpossible

The human person is thus called to work with his hands, mind and heart 
for the coming of God's kingdom into the world. 
This is especially true of those who are called to the apostolate and are, 
as St Paul says, "fellow workers for the kingdom of God" (Col 4:11), 
but it is also true of every human person. - Saint John Paul II
