Jesus is on the road to Jerusalem where
He will take up His cross and die.
Those that follow Jesus must be willing
to walk that same road with Him and
follow Him all the way to Calvary.
Jesus requires 3 things in order to be His
disciple:
~To put God first above all family,
including myself.
~To take up my cross(s);
~Renounce all material possessions
that detract me from God.
Practice discipleship everyday!
Jesus tells me that discipleship is not
always easy.
The
Kingdom
of
God
requires
preparation and a price.
Following Jesus has a cost. Am I willing
to pay it? It will not be easy, but Jesus
has promised to be at my side.

“Christ has no Body now but yours
No hands, no feet on earth but yours
Yours are the eyes through which He looks
compassion on this world
Yours are the feet with which He walks
to do good
Yours are the hands with which He blesses
all the world”

A reading according to the holy Gospel of Luke
Luke 10:1-12, 17-20
“Revised Standard Version of the Bible, copyright 1952 (2nd edition, 1971) by the Division of Christian Education of the
Glory to you, Lord.
Council of the Churches of Christ in the United States of America. Used by permission. All rights reserved.”
After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him,National
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 s hall be
more tolerable on that day for Sodom than for that town.
The seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in
your name!" And he said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold,
I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the
power of the enemy; and nothing shall hurt you.
Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you; but rejoice that
your names are written in heaven."
The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

During your lifetime you will have many important missions,
some small, some larger, and some more difficult than others.
List one that you have already faced opposition to; one that
you failed to do when you had the chance; and one that you
were successful at:
The Grail Prayer
Lord Jesus,
I give you my hands to do your work.
I give you my feet to go your way.
I give you my eyes to see as you do.
I give you my tongue to speak your words.
I give you my mind that you may think in me.
I give you my spirit that you may pray in me.
Above all, I give you my heart that you may love in me
your Father and all humanity.
I give you my whole self that you may grow in me, so that
it is you, Lord Jesus, who live and work and pray in me.
Amen.

spoken
to you. Abide in me,
and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither
can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me,
and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If a man does not abide in me,
he is cast forth as a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire and burned. If you
abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. By this my Father is
glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples.

The vine grower is The Father.
Jesus is the True Vine; we are the
branches.
Having a relationship with Christ;
keeping His commandments and
loving one another is a way of
bearing fruit.
My life must be rooted in Christ.
I make the decision to bear fruit or
become dead wood.
Pruning helps us to grow.

Fruit can only grow and ripen on

Without God I cannot achieve
anything. I need to ask God for
what I want.
If I fail to bear fruit I will be
separated from God.
There are only two choices: life
or death.
Choose to be fruit!

 Jesus sends out 70 (other sources say 72) disciples to
towns and places He will soon visit to prepare the way
for Him by proclaiming the Good News and sharing His
love and peace.

Failed to do:
whether he is able with ten thousand to
meet him who comes against him with
twenty thousand?
And if not, while the other is yet a great
way off, he sends an embassy and asks
terms of peace. So therefore, whoever of
you does not renounce all that he has
cannot be my disciple.
The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
In today’s Gospel Jesus tells us the parables of the
man desiring to build a tower and the king
preparing to go to war. Both needed to consider the
cost of their plans in order to be successful. Being a
disciple requires both a plan and a price. Keeping
in mind the cost of the 3 requirements of a disciple,
write your own discipleship plan, including any
worldly obstacles you struggle with that detract you
from Christ. How can you put God first in your life?

Opposition:
Pray this every morning….
Whoever does not bear his own cross and
come after me, cannot be my disciple.
For which of you, desiring to build a tower,
does not first sit down and count the cost,
whether he has enough to complete it?
Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation,
and is not able to finish, all who see it begin
to mock him, saying, `This man began to
build, and was not able to finish.' Or what
king, going to encounter another king in
war, will not sit down first and take counsel

Pray for more disciples; travel light, trusting God for
everything; do not linger; to use these words first upon
entering a house: “Peace be to this house”; accept
what others give to them; cure the sick and witness the
nearness of God’s reign.
To accept or reject the disciples was to accept or reject
Christ.
People who refuse to hear the Word of God will suffer
more than the people of the city of Sodom. (Read
Genesis 19)
The disciples return successful and are full of joy.
Jesus reminds His disciples not to be joyful that
demons were subject to them, but for the fact they will
have a place in Heaven.
God made me to know Him, love Him, and serve Him.
God has chosen me to lead others to Christ.
I am sent forth to do His Will at each Mass. (“Missa” in
Latin means “sent forth”)
True Vine or Consequences. Choose the correct statement. Then arrange the black bolded
