For 4 October 2019, The Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, based on Luke 10:13-16
Jesus said to the seventy he had appointed, Â â€œWoe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the deeds of power done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But at the judgment it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon than for you. And you, Capernaum,
will you be exalted to heaven?
No, you will be brought down to Hades.
Â â€œWhoever listens to you listens to me, and whoever rejects you rejects me, and whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me.â€
