Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over unclean spirits. He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick - no food, no sack, no money in their belts. They were, however, to wear sandals but not a second tunic. He said to them, "Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave. Whatever place does not welcome you or listen to you, leave there and shake the dust off your feet in testimony against them."
OFFERING OF THE DAY
BY ST THERESE
My Lord, I offer You all the actions I did today, for the intentions and the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus; I would like to sanctify the beating of my heart, my thoughts and my most simple work by joining them to His most infinite merits, to repair my faults by throwing them in the blaze of His Merciful Love. O my God I ask You for myself and for those I love for the grace to accomplish perfectly Your holy wish, to accept for Your Love the joys and pains of this passage that is life so that one day we can be reunited in Heaven for all eternity.
