“He said to them, ‘The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest. Go on your way; behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves. Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals; and greet no one along the way.”
Jesus paints quite a challenging picture here.
What is the greatest challenge for you in Jesus’ exhortation here?
Ask him for the grace to live into that challenge.
Heritage word—“Yet, though this year may be the last, if we really endeavor to belong to the good God alone, if we try to detach ourselves properly from all temporal and earthly good, which we shall have to do anyway some day in death . . . then death will not find us unprepared even though it should come—as the dear Lord says—like a thief in the night.”
(Sister Mary Aloysia, Foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
