DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Evangelisation: In today’s Gospel, Jesus commissioned His apostles to “proclaim the Gospel to all peoples”.  St Francis Xavier, one of our greatest missionaries brought the Gospel to Asia. Let us pray that we too will have the deep desire to draw more people closer to God’s Truth of Eternal Salvation.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 16:15-20

Jesus showed himself to the Eleven, and he said to them, ‘Go out to the whole world; proclaim the gospel to all creation. He whor believes and is baptised will be saved; he who does not believe will be condemned. These are the signs that will be associated with believers: in my name they will cast out devils; they will have the gift of tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands and be unharmed should they drink deadly poison; they will lay their hands on the sick, who will recover.’

And so the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven; there at the right hand of God he took his place, while they, going out, preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word by the signs that accompanied it.
