Dear Friend in the Lord,

Faith – “Divine Peace”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus sent seventy two disciples to proclaim the Good News of Salvation that brings “God’s Peace to the homes of those who believe in Him.”  Ponder on, “Can we experience such ‘Divine Peace’ in the successes and power of the secular world?  What is God’s Spirit saying to you today?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 10:1-7

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; do not move from house to house.’
