Today’s Gospel selection according to Luke starts with an admonition to place our faith and trust in the right things and not in things of this world, which wear out, can be stolen, or eaten by moths.

Jesus told his disciples (and us) that the Father is pleased to give us the heavenly reward offered freely and completely.

and your neighbor as yourself.”

When we think of Jesus’ followers we think of the 12 apostles, but there were more.

Today’s Gospel speaks of the 72 whom Jesus sent out. This was a kind of “internship,” a training time while Jesus was still with them. The mission was the same as Jesus’ own ministry: “cure the sick” and “say to them, ‘the kingdom of God has come near to you.’”
