"Why mission? Because to us, as to St. Paul, 'has been confided the privilege of announcing the unfathomable riches of Christ to the pa-gans' (Eph. 3:8). New life in him is the Good News for men and women of all times; everybody is called to it and destined for it. In fact, everybody is searching for it, even if, at times, they are looking in a confused sort of way, and everybody has the right to know the value of this gift and to possess it. The Church and every Christian within it cannot hide or keep this new treasure to themselves, be-cause they have received it from God precisely to pass it on to eve-rybody else. This is why mission does not just flow from the formal command of the Lord but also from a deep imperative of the life of God within us" (Redemptoris Missio no. 11).
