The United States of America is missionary territory filled with people seeking truth and love.  They know what their heart desires, but wander about aimlessly and follow those more lost than they in their quest of truth and love.

Their creator placed the desire for truth and love in their heart.  What they desire is their creator, who is truth and love.

As baptized Catholics we are called to engage the world, not to separate ourselves from it or to accommodate it, but to transform it with the truth and love of Christ Jesus.  The full truth of Christ Jesus resides in the church he established, and his grace and love flows abundantly from the sacraments he left her.

We are called to be witnesses to this truth and love.  This is what Christ Jesus commissioned his apostles and disciples with, and this is what we were commissioned with through our baptism.
