Gospel text (Mk 6,7-13): Jesus called the Twelve to him and began to send them out two by two, giving them authority over evil spirits. Jesus called the Twelve to him and began to send them out two by two, giving them authority over evil spirits. And He ordered them to take nothing for the journey except a staff; no food, no bag, no money in their belts. They were to wear sandals and were not to take an extra tunic. And he added, «In whatever house you are welcomed, stay there until you leave the place. If any place doesn't receive you and the people refuse to listen to you, leave after shaking the dust off your feet. It will be a testimony against them». So they set out to proclaim that this was the time to repent. They drove out many demons and healed many sick peo­ple by anointing them.

Today we see The Twelve, chosen by Jesus –Simo Peter, James, and John…- as freshmen in their young vocation as Apostles. Jesus has chosen them to live with Him, to form them and, thus all ensemble, propagate the Good News of Salvation. Moreover, the Lord gives them strength to heal the sick and cast away demons.

_ What a joy! God has saved me and wants to count on me to stand by others –friend, relatives… To keep their company along the good paths in this life, on our way to life eternal.
