Dear Friend in the Lord,
Ascension of Jesus: In today’s Gospel, before Jesus ascends into heaven (Lk 24:51), He commissioned His disciples to proclaim the Gospel and baptise peoples of all nations in the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Pray with deep gratitude to God for the gift of faith. Many have died for the faith. How much sacrifice would you make for Jesus?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
The eleven disciples set out for Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had arranged to meet them. When they saw him they fell down before him, though some hesitated.
Jesus came up and spoke to them. He said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you. And look, I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.’
