Ascension Day (2015) (Mark 16:15-20)

Jesus commissions His disciples (and us) to go forth as witnesses and evangelize and baptize others in the name of the Trinity. We can do this because we have received the Holy Spirit. We need to live our lives as those worthy to carry out this commission. When I was at Holy Angels in Dyersburg and received a call from someone who expressed a desire to become a Catholic, I didn’t immediately have them join the RCIA. Instead, I offered to them the opportunity to come to our monthly pot luck dinner, so they could meet some Catholics. The best way to evangelize is by how we live our lives, by showing what we believe has caused a change in how we live.
