In this Sunday’s Gospel for the Ascension of the Lord, Jesus tells his disciples, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” In the Gospel for the 7th Sunday of Easter, we hear the words of Jesus’ prayer to the Father: “As you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world.” As Jesus prepares to return to his Father, he commissions his followers to proclaim the Good News to the world.
