Ord. Wk 15th: Monday
Mt 10:34-40

Jesus instructed the Twelve as follows: ‘Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth: it is not peace I have come to bring, but a sword. For I have come to set son against father, daughter against mother, daughter in law against mother in law; a person's enemies will be the members of his own household. 

‘No one who prefers father or mother to me is worthy of me. No one who prefers son or daughter to me is worthy of me. Anyone who does not take his cross and follow in my footsteps is not worthy of me. Anyone who finds his life will lose it; anyone who loses his life for my sake will find it. 

‘Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me; and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.’
