The 22nd Friday after Pentecost

Evanghelia Zilei

In vremea aceea, Domnul a ales alti saptezeci si i-a trimis doi cate doi inaintea fetei Sale, in fiecare cetate si loc unde El Insusi avea sa mearga. Si le spunea: Secerisul este mult, dar lucratorii sunt putini; asadar, rugati-L pe Domnul secerisului sa scoata lucratori la secerisul Sau. Mergeti! Iata, Eu va trimit ca pe niste miei in mijlocul lupilor. Nu purtati punga, nici traista, nici incaltaminte; si nimanui sa nu-i dati binete pe cale. Iar in orice casa veti intra, mai intai ziceti: Pace casei acesteia! Si de va fi acolo un fiu al pacii, pacea voastra se va odihni peste el; iar de nu, ea se va intoarce la voi. Si in aceasta casa ramaneti, mancand si band ceea ce va vor da, caci vrednic este lucratorul de plata sa. Nu va mutati din casa’n casa. Si in oricare cetate veti intra si’n care va vor primi, mancati ceea ce vi se va pune inainte. Si vindecati pe bolnavii din ea, si spuneti-le: S’a apropiat de voi imparatia lui Dumnezeu! Si in oricare cetate veti intra si’n care nu va vor primi, iesiti in pietele ei si ziceti: Din cetatea voastra, si praful care s’a lipit de picioarele noastre vi’l scuturam voua. Dar pe aceasta s’o stiti: ca s’a apropiat imparatia lui Dumnezeu! Va spun Eu voua ca in ziua aceea mai usor ii va fi Sodomei decat cetatii aceleia.

Vai tie, Horazine! Vai tie, Betsaido! Ca daca in Tir si in Sidon s’ar fi facut minunile care s’au facut la voi, de mult s’ar fi pocait, stand in sac si’n cenusa. Dar Tirului si Sidonului mai usor le va fi la judecata decat voua. Si tu, Capernaume, nu pan’la cer ai fost inaltat? Pan’la iad vei fi coborat! (Luca 10, 1-15)

The Daily Gospel

At that time, the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and salute no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, 'Peace be to this house!' And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you. And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages; do not go from house to house. Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you; heal the sick in it and say to them, 'The kingdom of God has come near to you.' But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say, 'Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off against you; nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.' I tell you, it shall be more tolerable on that day for Sodom than for that town.

'Woe to you, Chorazin! woe to you, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it shall be more tolerable in the judgment for Tyre and Sidon than for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You shall be brought down to Hades." (Luke 10:1-15)
