“The Lord's power shall be known to his servants” (first reading) and in his servants (Gospel). God works through us to spread the message of salvation.


Isaiah 66:10–14c. In the prophet's vision of a restored Jerusalem , God's faithful people shall know comfort and be fully nourished.


Psalm of the Day: Ps (65) 66

All creation is invited to witness God's wonders for Israel and to give praise. The focus is especially on the Exodus, summarized in its opening and closing acts: God “changed the sea into dry land”; and “through the river” Jordan , the people “passed on foot.”

Galatians 6:14–18. Wrapping up his letter, Paul summarizes the Gospel that he preaches. It is this Gospel that matters above all else.


Luke 10:1–12, 17–20. This text summarizes the rules for early Christian missionaries, which has been read back into the ministry of Jesus, and it ends with an affirmation that the Gospel is being welcomed with joy. Jesus reminds the disciples that these accomplishments are the work of God acting in Jesus: “I have given you the power.”
