Gospel for Saints Timothy and Titus

Luke 10:1-9

Summary: Jesus sent seventy-two followers to prepare towns for his visit. He advised them to rely on God’s provision, not carrying extra supplies, and to bless homes with peace. They were to stay in one house per town, accepting hospitality, healing the sick, and proclaiming the nearness of God's Kingdom.

Mission of the Seventy-Two

The Lord Jesus appointed seventy-two other disciples whom he sent ahead of him in pairs to every town and place he intended to visit.

He said to them, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.

Go on your way; behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves. Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals; and greet no one along the way.

Into whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this household.’ If a peaceful person lives there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you.

Stay in the same house and eat and drink what is offered to you, for the laborer deserves his pay. Do not move about from one house to another.

Whatever town you enter and they welcome you, eat what is set before you, cure the sick in it and say to them, ‘The Kingdom of God is at hand for you.’”
