Jesus Gave the Apostles a Mission


Luke 9:1-6


Christ called a meeting of His disciples.

He gave them power and authority.

Jesus told the Apostles how to live.

They were to travel light like Pope Francis.


Churches started where the Apostles went.

They were blessed because they were heaven sent.

A delegation for every nation,

Cooperation is a sensation.


Holy Church has a specific mission.

Love everybody without condition.

Come to fruition without sedition.

Tom Hanks was in “The Road to Perdition.”


Let’s have confidence in God’s providence.

There’s no limit to God’s benevolence.
