DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Harvest is Rich”: Jesus in today’s Gospel, reminds us of our need to evangelise the Truth of Salvation through the daily witnessing of our faith. Let us pray that God will enlighten our minds and deepen our zeal to draw people closer to His Truth of Salvation.  Pray for the gift of wisdom in our daily living.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 10:1-9

The Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them out ahead of him in pairs, to all the towns and places he himself would be visiting. And he said to them, ‘The harvest is rich but the labourers are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send labourers to do his harvesting. Start off now, but look, I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Take no purse with you, no haversack, no sandals. Salute no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, let your first words be, “Peace to this house!”

‘And if a man of peace lives there, your peace will go and rest on him; if not, it will come back to you. Stay in the same house, taking what food and drink they have to offer, for the labourer deserves his wages; do not move from house to house. Whenever you go into a town where they make you welcome, eat what is put before you. Cure those in it who are sick, and say, “The kingdom of God is very near to you.” ’
