(Week 25 of the year: Wednesday)
JESUS SENT THEM OUT TO PROCLAIM THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND TO HEAL.
Jesus called the Twelve together and gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal. He said to them, “Take nothing for the journey: neither staff, nor haversack, nor bread, nor money; and let none of you take a spare tunic. Whatever house you enter, stay there; and when you leave, let it be from there. As for those who do not welcome you, when you leave their town shake the dust from your feet as a sign to them.” So they set out and went from village to village proclaimed the Good News and healing everywhere.
V. The Gospel of the Lord.
