Gospel Reflection: Matthew 28: 16-20

Here’s a beautiful reflection on Matthew 28:16-20 by Anne Osdieck, from the Saint Louis University website.

Gospel Reflection
(Matthew 28:16-20)

And behold, I am with you all days until the end of the age.

In the name of
the Father

(who gave us his only child),

and of
the Son

(who gives us himself,
manifesting eternal love for us),

and of
the Holy Spirit

(our constant companion now
and always):

“We can only stand in awe-struck silence
before such love that is beyond boldest expectation,
beyond all telling”

— written by Anne Osdieck. Last paragraph by Karl Rahner.  Posted on The Sunday Website of Saint Louis University.
