DG Book

Gospel: Matthew 10:7-15
Go, and proclaim this message: The kingdom of heaven is near. Heal the sick, bring the dead back to life, cleanse the lepers, and drive out demons. Freely have you received, freely give. Do not carry any gold or silver or money in your purses. Do not take a traveling bag, or an extra shirt, or sandals, or a walking stick: workers deserve to be compensated.When  you  come  to  a  town  or  a  village,  look  for  a worthy person, and stay there until you leave.When you enter the house, wish it peace. If the people are worthy people, your peace will rest on them; if they are not worthy people, your blessing will come back to you.And if you are not welcomed, and your words are not listened to, leave that house or that town, and shake the dust off your feet. I assure

you, it will go easier for the people of Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment, than it will for the people of that town.

Reflections

“To proclaim and advance the Kingdom.”The gospel passage outlines what   entails   the   mission   to proclaim  the  Kingdom  of  God. It  identifies  the  tasks  that  the disciples  ought  to  accomplish. One may notice that these are the same activities that Jesus did during his public ministry. They are now extended to the disci- ples. This means that the same heavenly powers are to operate to fulfill the tasks. The disciples now share in the powers of Jesus. Today, these powers are ope- rative in the Church. They work in people touched by the Spirit. How does the Spirit inspire and empower us? What are we being called and sent to do to advance the Reign of God? We may not have the power to cure diseases and sickness, to raise the dead back to life, and so forth. But one thing is certain—we are gifted to do something for the Kingdom of God. And that something is specific to us to do.
