Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Ascension of Jesus”: In today’s Gospel, before Jesus Ascended into heaven, He proclaimed to His disciples, “Go and make disciples of all nations and baptise them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” Ponder on, “God’s Dream is that every person receives the Gift of Eternal Salvation. How do we witness to this Truth daily?”
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.’
