"... the life of the Church communion will become a sign for all the world and a compelling force that will lead persons to faith in Christ: '...so that the world may believe that you have sent me.' (John 17:21) In such a way communion leads to mission, and mission itself to communion." (Christifideles Laici 31)
"Thus, communion is itself mission, indeed communion begets communion and is essentially a missionary communion." (Consecrated Life in the Third Millennium - Starting afresh from Christ 33)
