As Christians we are encouraged to be ‘Missionary Disciples’ which means to go out in the world and actively spread the Good News.
We know that Jesus’ disciples did not always find it easy to follow Jesus. Similarly, it is not always easy for us to follow Jesus and do the right thing or put our trust in him when so many upsetting things are happening in the world. But in the Gospel readings, Jesus asks us to put our trust in him. Jesus is with us through everything and we can find great hope and support in knowing that he is by our sides through this difficult time.
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”
