Dear Friend in the Lord,

Discipleship” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus sent His disciples ahead of Him to proclaim the Good News of Salvation.  He added, “The harvest is rich, but the labourers are few.”  Ponder on, “God has given each of us the gift of faith, to witness to all peoples.  How Have we been fulfilling our responsibilities to God, through our families and others?”

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 was to visit. He said to them, ‘The harvest is rich but the labourers are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send labourers to his harvest.’

‘Start off now, but remember, I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Carry no purse, no haversack, no sandals. Salute no one on the road. Whatever house you go into, 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.’
