DG Book

Gospel: Mark 6:7-13
He called the Twelve to him, and began to send them out two by two, giving them authority over evil spirits.
And he ordered them to take nothing for the journey, except a staff: no food, no bag, no money in their belts.
They were to wear sandals and were not to take an extra tunic. And he added, “In whatever house you are welcomed,
stay there until you leave the place. If any place doesn’t receive you, and the people refuse to listen to you,

leave after shaking the dust off your feet. It will be a testimony against them.”
So they set out to proclaim that this was the time to repent.
They drove out many demons and healed many sick people by anointing them.

Is it possible to go for mission without food, clothing or mo­ney? Nowadays, when we travel to conduct seminars,
recollection or retreat, we bring not only personal belongings but also laptop, projector, guitar, and the like. Jesus’
demands seem to be impractical and inhuman. Jesus actually emphasizes the urgency of the missionary works more than material things.
He teaches the need to be detached not only from material things but also from people’s praises and/or rejections. The tasks to preach,
drive out demons, and heal the sick are more important than dwelling on the painful experience of rejection.
His demand is also a challenge for us to put our trust in his guidance and inspiration as we carry out the missionary work.
