The Commissioning of the Eleven

Mark 16:15-20

On this feast of Saint Mark, we hear the Great Commission in the longer ending of Mark’s Gospel. Jesus’ mission is now the disciples’ mission. They are to go out and proclaim the Good News to everyone. Though Jesus returned to the Father, his Spirit remained with them and worked through them.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for choosing me to serve you and for sending me out to serve my sisters and brothers.
