Commentary: Read at "Whole Family Catechesis" this morning, where I stood in for the Director of Religious Education, my pal Papa Sierra. I picked the ending of the first two gospels because they tied in with this morning subject, evangelization. The Holy Ghost led me to the ending of Isaiah.

The Commissioning of the Eleven (Mark, 16:14-16), the Commissioning of the Disciples (Matthew, 28:16-20), Gathering of the Nations (Isaiah, 66:18-21), & Lasting Punishment & Reward (66:22-24).
