DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

St Luke – Evangelist: The great evangelist served God’s Will by proclaiming His Word through his God-given gifts of being able to record authentically the Truth of the Gospel, so as to hand on the Truth to all generations.  Ponder on, “How is God also urging you to preserve the Gospel, in your daily living of the faith?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 10:42-45

The Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them out ahead of him in pairs, to all the towns and places he 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.

Whenever you go into a town where they make you welcome, eat what is set before you. Cure those in it who are sick, and say, “The kingdom of God is very near to you.” ’
