Missio Dei LLC
Jonathon Fessenden and Phillip Hadden started this publication while attending Holy Apostles College and Seminary with the desire to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ in a more tailored and precise model of subsidiarity by reaching out to those in our own circle of family, friends, and associates. We hope with your participation; we can help reach out in mission to those who have been isolated around our parish communities.
Missio Dei features a diverse group of writers. Some writers at Missio Dei attend the Traditional Latin Mass; and others, support the initiatives set forth at the Vatican II council and/or the initiatives of the current pontificate under Pope Francis. Each writer writes on topics of interest, so long as they refrain from polemics against Catholic clerics and personalities. Of course, under such a directive, there is still room for charitable disagreement and debate.
So, how can each one of us join and better actively engage in the Mission of God? Look no further than the words of Sacred Scripture from the lips of Christ in His High Priestly Prayer found in the Gospel of John Ch. 17:
20 I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, 21 so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me. (Jn. 17:20-21 NAB)
What side is Missio Dei on? The side of God's mission that desires all to be saved and come to the knowledge of God. What helps this mission? The proclamation of the good news in unity with each other, so that world may believe that God sent Christ to save it.
It?s my hope you join us with the Missio Dei.
