  • First Reading

    2 Timothy 1:1-8
    1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God according to the promise of the life which is in Christ Jesus,
    2 To Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
    3 I thank God whom I serve with a clear conscience, as did my fathers, when I remember you constantly in my prayers.
    4 As I remember your tears, I long night and day to see you, that I may be filled with joy.
    5 I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lo'is and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you.
    6 Hence I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands;
    7 for God did not give us a spirit of timidity but a spirit of power and love and self-control.
    8 Do not be ashamed then of testifying to our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel in the power of God,

    Titus 1:1-5
    1 Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to further the faith of God's elect and their knowledge of the truth which accords with godliness,
    2 in hope of eternal life which God, who never lies, promised ages ago
    3 and at the proper time manifested in his word through the preaching with which I have been entrusted by command of God our Savior;
    4 To Titus, my true child in a common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.
    5 This is why I left you in Crete, that you might amend what was defective, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you,

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 96:1-3, 7-8, 10
    1 O sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth!
    2 Sing to the LORD, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day.
    3 Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!
    7 Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength!
    8 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering, and come into his courts!
    10 Say among the nations, "The LORD reigns! Yea, the world is established, it shall never be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity."

  • Gospel

    Luke 10:1-9
    1 After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come.
    2 And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
    3 Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.
    4 Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and salute no one on the road.
    5 Whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace be to this house!'
    6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you.
    7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages; do not go from house to house.
    8 Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you;
    9 heal the sick in it and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.'
