The Great Commission

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations…. teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age." (Matthew 28: 19 – 20)

Jesus Christ is Emmanuel – "God with us." He promises: "Behold, I am with you always."

At the beginning of his Gospel, St. Matthew writes:

"Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel." (Matthew 1:21)

At the end of the Gospel according to St. Matthew, Jesus promises: "Behold, I am with you always."

Jesus Christ is with us in the Eucharist. He is with us in all the mission fields in the world.
