GOSPEL

Anyone who welcomes you, welcomes me.

A reading from the holy gospel according to Matthew 10:40-42

Jesus said to his disciples: “Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me. And anyone who welcomes me also welcomes the one who sent me.” “Anyone who welcomes a prophet, just because that person is a prophet, will be given the same reward as a prophet. Anyone who welcomes a good person, just because that person is good, will be given the same reward as a good person.” “And anyone who gives one of my most humble followers a cup of cool water, just because that person is my follower, will surely be rewarded.”

The gospel of the Lord.
