Gospel Reading (Mattew 9:35-10:1. 6-8)

(When he saw the crowds he felt sorry for them.)

Jesus made a tour through all the towns and villages,

teaching in their synagogues,

proclaiming the Good News of the kingdom

and curing all kinds of diseases

and sickness.

And when he saw the crowds he felt sorry for them

because they were harassed

and dejected,

like sheep without a shepherd.

Then he said to his disciples,

“The harvest is rich but the labourers are few,

so ask the Lord of the harvest

to send labourers into the harvest.”

He summoned his twelve disciples,

and gave them authority over unclean spirits

with power to cast them out

and to cure all kinds of diseases

and sickness.

These twelve Jesus sent out,

instructing them as follows:

“Go rather to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.

And as you go,

proclaim that the kingdom of heaven is close at hand.

Cure the sick,

raise the dead,

cleanse the lepers,

cast out devils.

You received without charge,

give without charge.

The Gospel of the Lord.

R.) Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
