Gospel: Luke 10:1-9
After this, the Lord appointed seventy-two other disciples, and sent them, two by two, ahead of him, to every town and place, where he himself was to go. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. So you must ask the Lord of the harvest to send workers to his harvest. Courage! I am sending you like lambs among wolves. Set off without purse or bag or sandals; and do not stop at the homes of those you know.Whatever house you enter, first bless them, saying, ‘Peace to this house!’ If a friend of peace lives there, the peace shall rest upon that person. But if not, the blessing will return to you. Stay in that house, eating and drinking at their table, for the worker deserves to be paid. Do not move from house to house.When they welcome

you to any town, eat what they offer you. Heal the sick who are there, and say to them: ‘The kingdom of God has drawn near to you.'

Reflections

“He sent them, two by two.“The  gospel  today  describes the sending out of the 72 dis- ciples in pairs, two by two. Per- haps, Jesus wants the disciples to understand the importance of mutual help in the mission. They have to see their mission in the context of community. A priest once shared that as Christ’s dis- ciples, our mission is not indivi- dual, but rather communitarian. And we could learn something from  St.  Luke,  the  Evangelist, whose feast we celebrate today. Luke  is  Paul’s  faithful  com- panion in the ministry. He is be- lieved to have accompanied St. Paul in his journey, acting either as his personal physician or his secretary (amanuensis) particu- larly when he was in prison. He is identified as the author of the third  “Synoptic  Gospel”,  which reminds us of the great sacrifice Jesus  made  through  his  death on the cross and his Resurrec- tion.  Moreover,  he  is  also  be- lieved to have written the Acts of the Apostles, which covers the earliest history of the Church af- ter Jesus’ earthly ministry. As we celebrate his feast, let us ask the Lord to help us fulfill our mission in the Church by deepening our understanding of God’s word.
