About Today Readings

St Luke

2 Timothy 4:10-17. Your friends tell the glory of your kingship, Lord – Psalm 144(145):10-13, 17-18. Luke 10:1-9.

The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few

What is it that holds us back from offering peace to all whom we meet, from offering healing and from announcing the kingdom of God among us? Do we feel unqualified or unworthy? Do we feel scared and apprehensive about opening ourselves up to ridicule and hostility? Do we feel weighed down or busy? We are invited to travel lightly through this world so that we can more readily and easily offer peace to those whom we encounter without worrying how it will be received. The need for peace and healing and good news is always so great. Let us respond generously to the invitation from Jesus to travel lightly, casting off what weighs us down, so we can more readily share with others the good news that God’s peace and healing and reign are near to us.
