DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Service and Witness of God: In today’s Gospel, Jesus empowers His apostles to proclaim and witness the Gospel of Salvation, and heal illnesses in His Name.  Ponder on, “Do we serve God’s People, with the humility and integrity that Jesus has shown us through His Life and Pastoral Ministries?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 10:7-13

Jesus said to his apostles, ‘As you go, proclaim that the kingdom of heaven is close at hand. Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out devils. You received without charge, give without charge. Provide yourselves with no gold or silver, not even with a few coppers for your purse, with no haversack for the journey or spare tunic or footwear or a staff, for the workman deserves his keep.

‘Whatever town or village you go into, ask for someone trustworthy and stay with him until you leave. As you enter his house, salute it, and if the house deserves it, may your peace descend upon it; if it does not, let your peace come back to you.’
