One way to be a Christian missionary is prayer.  St. Therese of the Child Jesus writes, “One day I was pondering over what I could do to save souls. … A phrase from the Gospel showed me…. ‘Pray the master of the harvest to send out laborers.’  Jesus has such a love for us that he wants us to share with him in the salvation of souls.  He wants to do nothing without us.  He waits for the prayer of little souls to save others … even a sigh from your heart!1 Think of that!  A little sigh coming straight from your heart can save souls.
