A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.
The Eleven made their way to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had summoned them. At the sight of Jesus, those who had doubted fell down in homage. Jesus came forward and addressed them in these words,
Full authority has been given me both in heaven and on earth; go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations.
Baptize them in the name of Abba God, and of the Only Begotten, and of the Holy Spirit.
Teach them to carry out everything I have commanded you.
And know that I am with you always, even until the end of the world!
The Good News as spoken through Matthew.
