- Rodrigo emerges from his climb up the falls to be forgiven and accepted by the very people he had sinned against. (Charlotte Hoppe)
- The scene where Robert de Niro has a huge weight of armour cut away by the natives he used to hunt. Powerful display of forgiveness. (Luke Whiteside, Youth Alpha Australia)
- In the film, The Mission, I found the scene where Robert DeNero's character (a slave trader) is cut free from the ropes that held him in bondage by the natives whose lives he had slaughtered very powerful. (Judith Snyder)
- The Pilgrim's Progress journey of penance up the falls is a great scene! (submitted by Buzz Trexler)
- I remember the best part as a scene in which a man (probably Father Gabriel) is climbing a mountain with a back-pack. The back-pack is weighting him down, and he cannot climb further and easily unless he gives up the pack. The symbolism is the back-pack is sin. We can our "packs" of sin with us, and until we let them go, "we cannot climb to where God needs us." (Rev. Dinah Haag)
- De Niro and Jeremy Irons in "The Mission" sacrifice
themselves for God and their parishioners.
