For 26 January 2022, The Memorial of Saints Timothy and Titus, Bishops, 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, â€˜The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers 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, â€œPeace to this house!â€ 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 labourer 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, â€œThe kingdom of God has come near to you.â€

Grazie mille, Ruth Anne! You give us such courage to go out and keep preaching without fear! And I couldn’t help but hear Timothy joining you, without fear or shame, in preaching today. That’s because it is his namesday! 😉
