DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Disciples of Jesus: In witnessing and serving the Lord’s Gospel of Salvation, Jesus reminds His disciples to be detached from the superficial and materialistic needs of life that may become a hindrance in their mission.  Do you have any “attachments” and “hindrances” in your living and serving God’s Will?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 10:1-7a

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.
