 God wishes all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one Mediator between God and men, himself Man, Jesus Christ who gave himself a ransom for all
 (1 Tim 2: 4-5), neither is there salvation in any other (Acts 4:1-2). Therefore all must be converted to Him as He is made known by the Church's preaching. All must be incorporated into Him by baptism,
and into the Church which is His Body.' Vatican II Missions (par. 7).
'The presentation of the Gospel message is not an optional contribution for the Church. It is the duty incumbent on her by the command of the Lord Jesus, so that people can believe and be saved.
This message is indeed necessary. It is unique. It cannot be replaced. It does not permit either indifference or alteration. It is a question of people's salvation. It is the beauty of the Revelation that it represents.
It brings with it a wisdom that is not of this world. It is able to stir up by itself faith - faith that rests on the power of God. It is truth. It merits having the apostle consecrate to it all his time and all his energies,
and to sacrifice for it, if necessary, his own life.
(Pope Paul VI, 'Evangelii Nuntiandi' par. 5)
All Catholics and followers of Jesus are called to spread the Kingdom of God with all the means at their disposal, and with all the gifts and talents they have received from God. Sometimes the Holy Spirit,
Who gives life to the Body of Christ and all its members, calls some disciples to live the three vows of chastity, poverty (or self-abandonment to Divine Providence), and obedience, so they can devote
themselves entirely to the Lord and His service.
The Mother of God Brothers' story describes how a number of young men were chosen to spread the Gospel and care for their brothers in need.
