Gospel of the Day: LK 10:1-9

From the gospel scripture according to Luke.

Now after these things, the Lord also appointed seventy others, and sent them two by two ahead of him into every city and place where he was about to come.

Then he said to them, “The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore to the Lord of the harvest, that he may send out laborers into his harvest.

Go your ways. Behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves.

Carry no purse, nor wallet, nor sandals. Greet no one on the way.

Into whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house.’

If a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you.

Remain in that same house, eating and drinking the things they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Don’t go from house to house.

Into whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat the things that are set before you.

Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘God’s Kingdom has come near to you.’_”
