This is the last day for reading the Gospel in the current church year. The mystery is before you in all its brilliance—the resurrection of Jesus and your commission as a disciple. The promises of the Lord’s power and presence unfold. Signs and wonders will follow those faithful disciples sent forth into the world for the conversion of others.
There is no other meaning to life than this Great Commission. Spend time reflecting over the past year. See everything in terms of the purpose of your existence—to give praise and reverence to God and to serve the Lord with all your heart.
The Lord you see with the eyes of faith ascending into heaven is coming again; the mystery is about to cycle itself through your life once again in Advent. Jesus is coming!
