Gospel Reflection - The Ascension of the Lord

My weekly reflection on the Sunday Gospel reading. In this video, I reflect on Matthew 28:16-20, the Gospel reading for the Ascension of the Lord in Cycle A, exploring the following topics:

- Jesus gives us a clear mission - the Great Commission.
- We have to ask the question: Have we lost our missionary zeal?
- Dialog and respect are good, but they should not take away our desire to convert the world.
- Danger of indifferentism.
- Our union with Christ should shine through our lives.
- Even though the Apostles doubt, they still worship. We should follow their example in times of doubt.
- We are not expected to do it on our own. Christ is with us always.

You can find the text of the Gospel reading for the Ascension of the Lord in Cycle A at the USCCB website.
