Summary

St. Francis de Sales is an ideal model of the zeal, spiritual principles, and attitude of one who sets out to live and share the Faith.

Just as Christ sent his apostles into the world to make disciples of all nations, we too are called to this same mission. But where do we start? How can we accomplish this in today’s culture? On a Mission details the sanctifying process of cooperating with God’s grace as he lovingly forms an apostolic heart for others within each of us.

Patrick Madrid’s time-tested methodology combined with the model of St. Francis de Sales’s kindness and unassuming virtue will help you to explain your faith more intelligently, defend it more charitably, and share it more effectively.

A practical approach to evangelization

I love how Patrick very pragmatically breaks down the nuts and bolts of loving but no-apologies approach to apologetics.

Another slam dunk for Patrick Madrid!

This book is a great primer for how to be an Apostle, how to live out the Great Commission given to all the baptized. We are sent to bring others to Jesus Christ in His Holy Catholic Church and to do so with joy until we take our last breaths or until the Second Coming of Christ.

Clear, understandable, and enriching!

Patrick Madrid does it again! In a wonderfully enlightening and entertaining narrative, Madrid leads us through surprisingly clear and simple instructions on defending the faith without offending people who don’t share it. I would take his advice on any topic having to do with apologetics. Kudos, Patrick!

Excellently well written with such beautiful words and wisdom

I loved the entire message he brings fourth with such knowledge, simplicity, and wisdom.

St. Francis was what seems like a very spiritually wise saint with many gifts and Patrick Madrid does very well to capture that and describe it to today’s world and time.

Many words of advice and affirmation were brought to me through listening to this book and I thank God for allowing Patrick to be His instrument in order to do so.

Beautiful listen and highly recommend anyone who is seeking and wants to listen to Gods will.
And this book is one way of many to do so

Love Patrick Madrid!

Aside from the pope I think Patrick Madrid is one of my favorite people in the Catholic world of Catholics! I have learned more with Patrick within the last couple of years through Relevant Radio smart phone app then I have many years that I’ve been in the Catholic Church as an adult.

I always thought that I would learn by going to church but that is not where we learned that is where we get inspired and we for fill our Sunday obligation. But to really learn the faith besides reading the catechism and other books as well as other practices, Patrick is definitely a source that’s very credible and inspiring as well as life changing.

This book may not specifically speak to those things, but coming from Patrick anything he shares is amazing. U2 will be inspired

Foundational Principles & Practical Wisdom

Short, but not fast food. Madrid offers a quick but richly balanced & highly nourishing introduction to being an apostle for Christ. Just the right amount of encounter with saintly apologetics (St. Francis, John Vianney etc.), practical insights from Madrid’s experiences, and recommendations of resources for further study. Hope he writes more like this one.
