TheAscension-detail

Before He ascended into Heaven, the resurrected Lord gives to His apostles the task of presenting to all men of all cultures the gift of His Reconciliation and Gospel: “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”.

Our Lord says to us «Peace be with you!». He invites us to receive the gift of peace and reconciliation that He has obtained by His Passion, Death and Resurrection. Furthermore, He invites us to welcome Him in our lives and encourages us to become agents of reconciliation within our families, our friends and in the places where we work or study.
