1 Pt 5:5b-14; Mk 16:15-20

Mark, evangelist

Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature. The church’s missionary mandate is primarily accomplished through evangelization. Certainly in our words, but especially by the witness of our lives, we proclaim the truth of Christ to the world. Though the call is global, we need not go far to make a difference. We all have family and friends who for varying reasons are no longer active in the faith. Some may loosely associate themselves with the church, but their daily living sadly lacks Christ at its center. We’re called to listen, welcome and reconcile. We are to be aware, supporting and strengthening those slipping away. We must lovingly, compassionately make Christ present to everyone we encounter. May our words and actions lead others to you, Lord.
