The Ascension Sunday – 2018

 

 The Ascension Sunday – 2018

  

“Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel”

  

These words of Jesus are directed to all of his disciples, to each one of us who are his followers. Yet, not so many are ready and able to leave everything behind and “go into the whole world” or even into a part of it.

 

To proclaim something – in this case the Gospel – one needs not only to know it, and know it well, but to be totally convinced about that it is the most right thing to do.

 

We are listening and even reading the Bible for so many years, but can we say that we really know it? Do we really understand it? Are we clear enough about its context?

 

The final question is: do we do anything so that we may be able and ready to “go into whole world” to proclaim the Gospel? What do we do in order to fulfill Jesus’ command?

 

First of all – we need to know the Gospel very well. Therefore we shall read it and listen to it every day. It is  very helpful to discuss it in small groups and then even in larger groups.

 

Secondly – try to talk about Jesus and his message with your friends, neighbors and others in your surroundings.

 

Thirdly – any doubts that arise on this subject present to those who know the Gospel better and try to get a good explanation.

 

Above all these above -  pray daily to the Holy Spirit for the light and understanding and learn to listen to his inspirations.
