    Truth is not a concept. Truth is a person and his name is Jesus Christ.

    what­ever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you. In the midst of the worries of life Peace is found by focusing your attention on goodness.

    LK 9:1-6

    Jesus called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal.

    He said to them, “Take nothing for your journey, no staff, nor bag, nor bread, nor money—not even an extra tunic. Whatever house you enter, stay there, and leave from there. Wherever they do not welcome you, as you are leaving that town shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.”

    They departed and went through the villages, bringing the good news and curing diseases everywhere.

    So, that was the gospel on Wednesday and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing/reading as it didn’t sound very Christ like.
    The priest went on to explain it as so, which still has me confused.
    He said if we don’t turn to God and don’t lean on him then when we need him he will not be there.
    I understand it from the sense that we can’t just then to him when in need (when aren’t we?), but the way the father phrased it left me a bit stumped.
    I would love some thoughts on it.

      Without hearing the homily I can’t reflect on what the priest said, but my catholic study bible has this commentary about the scripture.

      9:3 Take nothing: Trusting in God, the apostles must rely on local hospitality for necessities during their mission (12:2224). This prepares them for leadership in the Church, where they will preach the gospel through a life of spiritual poverty (10:7).

      9:5 shake off the dust: A symbolic act of judgment and curse (10:10-12; Acts 13:51). Those who reject God’s kingdom disqualify themselves from its blessings. See note on Mt 10:14.
