He lived among us.  He died for us.  He rose again to bring us new life.   Now, 40 days after Easter, we remember Jesus ascending into glory.   We hear His words to His followers, “you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Samaria, & to the ends of the earth.”  We must continue & tell the world about Jesus.  We want to bring the same message of the kingdom of God to new generations.  Tell the story by example, living as Jesus commanded us to live: for each other.

Master to “Come, Follow Me.”  Say “Yes” over and over again.

O God, who has chosen the Apostles to propagate the faith & to establish Your Holy Church throughout the world, we earnestly beseech You to choose from amongst our people many priests, deacons, religious brothers & sisters and lay persons who will gladly devote their entire lives in making YOU known & loved by all.   Through the intercession of Our Blessed Lady, we ask this through Christ our Lord.   Amen.
