Wednesday of the Twenty-fifth week in Ordinary Time
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 9:1-6.
Jesus summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases,
and he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
He said to them, "Take nothing for the journey, neither walking stick, nor sack, nor food, nor money, and let no one take a second tunic.
Whatever house you enter, stay there and leave from there.
And as for those who do not welcome you, when you leave that town, shake the dust from your feet in testimony against them."
Then they set out and went from village to village proclaiming the good news and curing diseases everywhere.
Jesus authorises anyone to be like him. Being a Christian we are oblige to follow Jesus' footsteps. We should be like him. So, when following Jesus we will take nothing. This means we should not worry for anything. However, He warns us that despite we are authorised by Jesus to do like Jesus did, there are still people who will not welcome and follow us. In case there are people who are against us we must protest them and tell them the work of Jesus by proclaiming His kingdom.
