Church's mission is to 'manifest the deeds of Jesus,' says cardinal


The mission of the Catholic church will continue to be centered on Christ, and Catholics must open up their hearts, receive a "spiritual pacemaker" from the Holy Spirit and be more like the "good Samaritan" to carry out God's will, Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga told attendees at a ministry conference Friday.

Rodriguez, the archbishop of Tegucigalpa, was the keynote speaker for the seventh annual University of Dallas Ministry Council, co-sponsored by the Dallas and Fort Worth dioceses and the University of Dallas in Irving.
