|2 Timothy 1:1-8
|Tell among all the peoples the wonders of the Lord.
R/. Tell among all the peoples the wonders of the Lord.
O sing a new song to the Lord;
sing to the Lord, all the earth.
O sing to the Lord; bless his name. R/.
Proclaim his salvation day by day.
Tell among the nations his glory,
and his wonders among all the peoples. R/.
Give the Lord, you families of peoples,
give the Lord glory and power;
give the Lord the glory of his name. R/.
Say to the nations, “The Lord is king.”
The world he made firm in its place;
he will judge the peoples in fairness. R/.
V/. Alleluia R/. Alleluia
V/.The Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor, to proclaim liberty to the captives.
At that time: The Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no money bag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’ And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you. And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the labourer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house. Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you. Heal the sick in it and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’
