Seventh Sunday of Easter

Today we reflect on the ending of Mark’s gospel. It offers us a very early summary of Easter themes. Bringing good news to the whole world. The grace of signs and wonders. Jesus ascending and taking his place at God’s right hand in glory. And the disciples going out to share the good news while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs. The challenge for each of us is to witness to the Risen and Ascended Lord in the goodness, truth, beauty, love and integrity of our daily lives. We have each been given the grace of resurrection life. Now we are invited to live it and share it to the praise and glory of God.
