DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus Empowers: In today’s Gospel, Jesus empowered His Twelve apostles to proclaim the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick. Jesus instructed them to live a life of detachment during their Mission.  The divine power that Jesus bestows upon us, are to be used with humility and for the good of others.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 9:1-6

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 do not have a spare tunic. Whatever house you enter, stay there; and when you leave let your departure be from there. As for those who do not welcome you, when you leave their town shake the dust from your feet as evidence against them.’

So they set out and went from village to village proclaiming the good news and healing everywhere.
