Feast of St. Luke

Gospel of today, Luke 10: 1-9

10 1 And after these things, the Lord appointed also other seventy-two. And he sent them two and two before his face into every city and place whither he himself was to come.
10 2 And he said to them: The harvest indeed is great, but the labourers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest that he send labourers into his harvest.
10 3 Go: Behold I send you as lambs among wolves.
10 4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.
10 5 Into whatever house you enter, first say: Peace be to this house.
10 6 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon him: but if not, it shall return to you.
10 7 And in the same house, remain, eating and drinking such things as they have: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Remove not from house to house.
10 8 And into what city soever you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you.
10 9 And heal the sick that are therein and say to them: The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
