Lk 9:1-6

The Mission of the Twelve.* 1a He summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, 2and he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal [the sick]. 3He said to them, “Take nothing for the journey,* neither walking stick, nor sack, nor food, nor money, and let no one take a second tunic. 4Whatever house you enter, stay there and leave from there.b 5And as for those who do not welcome you, when you leave that town, shake the dust from your feet* in testimony against them.”c 6Then they set out and went from village to village proclaiming the good news and curing diseases everywhere.
