Lambs among wolves
In the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.
Usually in the Gospels, we hear of Jesus doing the preaching and healing, but in today’s reading he sends out some of his friends independently of him to preach in other places, with these words ringing in their ears: ‘There is a large harvest, but few workers to gather it in. Pray to the owner of the harvest that he will send out workers to gather in his harvest’.
