Tuesday of 5th Sunday in Trinity – Luke 10:1-24

ShareLuke 10:1-24 “The kingdom of God has come near you.” This is Jesus’ proclamation to His disciples in both verses 9 and 11.  I seem to remember that from somewhere.  Computing . . . computing – come on-n-n-n brain! I’ve got it!  Isn’t this what J the B said in Matthew 3 to prepare the […]
