This Week’s Gospel Message

Thursday, May 23rd, 2024

This week’s Gospel message for Sunday, May 26, 2024 is from Matthew 28:16-20.

The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them.  When they all saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted.  Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  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.  And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”


“When we were baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we were bound with all three persons in God.  Called to live out that bond, we express it with the love that in turn binds us with others.  Bonded with those we love and with those who love us, we form an ever-widening family, rooted in the bonds of the Trinity.” SOURCE:  Pastoral Patterns, Summer 2024
