Throughout scripture, there are many stories of the miraculous healings performed by Christ, the Apostles, and other figures. These passages highlight the compassion, love, and care God has for all his children, both spiritually and physically.
All Catholics are called to be a source of healing and compassion to the sick and to give the gift of healing. This does not mean we are called to be miraculous faith healers, but it does mean that we must do what we can to help bring vital resources to those who need it most.
Right now, there are millions are desperately ill people without access to even the most basic forms of healthcare calling out for healing. Will you answer their call? will you help provide the gift of healing?
You can help provide life-saving health resources right from your desktop or smartphone, with MISSIO, a new and innovative Catholic crowd-funding platform powered by The Pontifical Mission Societies.
MISSIO allows you to search through vital charity projects – ones providing for basic needs, others extending the Good News of the Gospel to remote areas, and still more bringing the light of the Lord’s loving kindness to those in the darkest circumstances. Choose one of these missions, and donate directly to them, knowing that 100% of your donation will go directly there. Share them on social media so others can support the projects also.
Launched by Pope Francis himself, the MISSIO platform offers a direct connection to change-makers who work on the “front lines” making a difference for the poor and marginalized through direct, daily service.
Some example of the types of projects you can support on MISSIO are a number that will directly provide medical supplies and services to those in the most need.
There are opportunities to help an Intensive Care Unit in Kenya, to provide medical devices and surgeries for children in southern Uganda, or to bring nurses to Papua New Guinea. With MISSIO you can give directly to the sick and needy! Best of all, you can connect directly with mission project leaders who are champions for these children in need, providing them with words of encouragement or even offer a prayer.
MISSIO is powered by The Pontifical Mission Societies, the Catholic Church’s official support organization for overseas missions since 1822, providing for a global network of people who are making a difference for communities in need around the globe.
