The Ascension: Our Mission

Scripture accounts of the Ascension of the Lord, tell us that before Jesus ascended into heaven he gave his disciples and all who would come after them a simple and far-reaching mission: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations.” (Matthew 20:19) He also assured them and us with this promise: “Know that I am with you always, until the end of the world.” (Matthew 20:20)

The Ascension of the Lord which we will celebrate either this Sunday reminds us that through baptism we are committed to the same mission that Jesus gave to those first followers and that he will be with us every step of the way until the end of time.
