Gospel for the 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B

Mark 6:7-13

Summary: Jesus empowered the Twelve, sending them with minimal provisions to preach repentance, expel demons, and heal the sick. They were to stay in welcoming homes and leave unwelcoming places.

Mission of the Twelve

Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over unclean spirits. He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick – no food, no sack, no money in their belts. They were, however, to wear sandals but not a second tunic.

He said to them, “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave. Whatever place does not welcome you or listen to you, leave there and shake the dust off your feet in testimony against them.”

So they went off and preached repentance. The Twelve drove out many demons, and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.
