Gospel: Mark 16:15-20
Jesus appeared to the eleven and said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” Jesus gave his disciples instructions.
At 14 years old, Fr Jaime Bonet, founder of Verbum Dei, felt the call to make Jesus known to all people . He understood the desire of God to draw all people to himself that they may receive eternal life. The invitation is addressed to all--concecrated and lay people like you and me as written in John15:16, “It was not you who chose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit.” Fr Jaime saw the urgency and responded to the need . How about you? What is your response?
