Just go!

Monday of 29th week, based on Luke 10:1-9

After this the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them on ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go. He said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go on your way. See, I am sending you out like lambs into the midst of wolves. Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house!’ And if anyone is there who shares in peace, your peace will rest on that person; but if not, it will return to you. Remain in the same house, eating and drinking whatever they provide, for the laborer deserves to be paid. Do not move about from house to house. Whenever you enter a town and its people welcome you, eat what is set before you; cure the sick who are there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’Luke 10:1-9

About Mr Mike Kelly OP

I am married to Jenny, and we have 5 grown-up children and 9 grandchildren. I have had careers in education, and as an immigration consultant. Jenny and I are part of a local Dominican family, and have been part of a preaching team that travelled widely. The thing that makes me Dominican is what Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP calls "a deep relationship between the Dominican vocation to preach, and a passion for justice".
