From the Gospel according to Matthew
Mt 9:35–10:1, 5a, 6-8
Jesus went around to all the towns and villages,
teaching in their synagogues,
proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom,
and curing every disease and illness.
At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them
because they were troubled and abandoned,
like sheep without a shepherd.
Then he said to his disciples,
“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
so ask the master of the harvest
to send out laborers for his harvest.”
Then he summoned his Twelve disciples
and gave them authority over unclean spirits to drive them out
and to cure every disease and every illness.
Jesus sent out these Twelve after instructing them thus,
“Go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
Cure the sick, raise the dead,
cleanse lepers, drive out demons.
Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give.”
The Gospel of the Lord
Addressed to the gathered multitude.
Today, we mark the feast of St. Juan Diego and the second anniversary of establishing the Private Association of Faithful Eucharistic Missionary Spouses in the Conjugal Love Project. Congratulations to all contributors! These initiatives serve as Marian interventions through which the Lord aims to share the Gospel’s good news and bring healing to the masses. The devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe has borne fruit globally, and the Mother of Conjugal Love continues to impact marriages and families worldwide. However, the Lord seeks partners for the mission of supporting marriage and family. The call is not to leave one’s parish or group but to occasionally collaborate with the Mother to help many marriages and families. If you sense the Mother’s calling, consider becoming a collaborator, and she will reward your efforts abundantly.
In the context of married life:
Alice: We realise we haven’t actively contributed to spreading the faith, and as Christians, we’re called to do so. Many couples seek help from the Conjugal Love Project for the Mother to bring healing, just as she did for us. What if we offer to get involved?
Jay: We’re pressed for time, and besides, we still make mistakes. Who are we to give advice?
Alice: There are various ways we can contribute, and they provide the necessary training. Come on, take a step; you’ll find joy in it!
(They joined, and the Mother led them to enriching experiences while collaborating with her)

Send forth couples dedicated to your work, as your Project is progressing rapidly and requires more collaborators. Thank you, Mother, for your work within us and through us. We appreciate your blessed call, Mother.
