Embrace Your Mission


Daniel Comboni’s (1831-1881) first missionary trip to Africa ended in failure. He returned home to Italy and came up with what was a novel idea then: involve African Christians directly in evangelization of their sisters and brothers. This inclusive effort bore much fruit.


St. Daniel Comboni, I know how I think my vocation should be lived,
but I don’t seem to be accomplishing much.
By your example, show me how to put my ego aside
and humble myself
focused on God’s plan, not my own expertise.


Identify a situation where you seem to be making little headway. Ask someone whose opinion you value how he or she might approach things.
