SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL
Readings of the day: RB 7:10-18Mass: Ezra 9:5-9; Resp. Psalm (Tobit 13); Luke 9:1-6
It sounds so simple: Jesus summons the Twelve. He gives them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases. Jesus then provides a rather straightforward job description: proclaim the Kingdom of God; heal the sick; take nothing for the journey—no walking stick, sack, food, money, or a second tunic. When you enter a house, stay there and leave from there. If you aren’t welcomed then shake the dust from your feet and leave town. The Twelve went right to work—proclaiming the good news and curing diseases—everywhere. O blessed are those who hear the word of God and act on it. Why do I make it so complicated?
 Trust in the Lord with all your heart;and do not rely on your own insight.In all your ways acknowledge him,and he will make straight your paths.(Proverbs 3:5-6)

SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL, PRAY FOR US.
