The Lord worked with them

“But they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs.” (MK 16: 20)

The previous sentence in today’s Gospel says: “So then the Lord Jesus, after he spoke to them, was taken up into heaven and took his seat at the right hand of God.” And immediately after it says: “while the Lord worked with them.” It is not a paradox but God’s love. He never abandons us. He is always with us because we are sent to proclaim His word. And He “confirms the word through accompanying signs.”

“Go and teach all nations, says the Lord; I am with you always, until the end of the world.” (Gospel Acclamation)
