    1 Corinthians 9:16-19, 22-23

    16For if I preach the gospel, that gives me no ground for boasting. For necessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! 17For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward;but if not of my own will, I am entrusted with a commission. 18What then is my reward? Just this: that in my preaching I may make the gospel free of charge, not making full use of my right in the gospel. 19For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all, that I might win the more. 22To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 23I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.


    Psalms 117:1-2

    1Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! 2For great is his steadfast love toward us;and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever. Praise the LORD!


    Mark 16:15-20

    15And he said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. 16He who believes and is baptized will be saved;but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons;they will speak in new tongues;18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them;they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover." 19So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it. Amen.


    Advent Time.


    Is 30:19-21, 23-26

    Thus says the Lord GOD,
    the Holy One of Israel:
    O people of Zion, who dwell in Jerusalem,
    no more will you weep;
    He will be gracious to you when you cry out,
    as soon as he hears he will answer you.
    The Lord will give you the bread you need
    and the water for which you thirst.
    No longer will your Teacher hide himself,
    but with your own eyes you shall see your Teacher,
    While from behind, a voice shall sound in your ears:
    “This is the way;walk in it,”
    when you would turn to the right or to the left.

    He will give rain for the seed
    that you sow in the ground,
    And the wheat that the soil produces
    will be rich and abundant.
    On that day your flock will be given pasture
    and the lamb will graze in spacious meadows;
    The oxen and the asses that till the ground
    will eat silage tossed to them
    with shovel and pitchfork.
    Upon every high mountain and lofty hill
    there will be streams of running water.
    On the day of the great slaughter,
    when the towers fall,
    The light of the moon will be like that of the sun
    and the light of the sun will be seven times greater
    like the light of seven days.
    On the day the LORD binds up the wounds of his people,
    he will heal the bruises left by his blows.


    PS 147:1-2, 3-4, 5-6

    R. (see Isaiah 30:18d) Blessed are all who wait for the Lord.
    Praise the LORD, for he is good;
    sing praise to our God, for he is gracious;
    it is fitting to praise him.
    The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem;
    the dispersed of Israel he gathers.
    R. Blessed are all who wait for the Lord.
    He heals the brokenhearted
    and binds up their wounds.
    He tells the number of the stars;
    he calls each by name.
    R. Blessed are all who wait for the Lord.
    Great is our LORD and mighty in power:
    to his wisdom there is no limit.
    The LORD sustains the lowly;
    the wicked he casts to the ground.
    R. Blessed are all who wait for the Lord.


    Mt 9:35–10:1, 5a, 6-8

    Jesus went around to all the towns and villages,
    teaching in their synagogues,
    proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom,
    and curing every disease and illness.
    At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them
    because they were troubled and abandoned,
    like sheep without a shepherd.
    Then he said to his disciples,
    “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
    so ask the master of the harvest
    to send out laborers for his harvest.”

    Then he summoned his Twelve disciples
    and gave them authority over unclean spirits to drive them out
    and to cure every disease and every illness.

    Jesus sent out these Twelve after instructing them thus,
    “Go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
    As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
    Cure the sick, raise the dead,
    cleanse lepers, drive out demons.
    Without cost you have received;without cost you are to give.”
