The Presence and Power of the Spirit

A reflection on Acts 1:8 written by Bishop Bianchini DD, Diocese of Geraldton around the theme of World Youth Day in Sydney 2008.

ImageJust before His ascension, in the Great Commission , Jesus commands the Apostles, “Go… make disciples of all nations” and we His Church are commanded to do the same. However, this commandment isn’t given in isolation. While Christ has invited us to bring the Good News to the whole world, we cannot achieve anything if we are only working from our own strength. We must remember that the command is only possible because it is followed by the assurance, “behold, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
