Icon of the Holy Face
Church of Sant'Egidio, Rome


Jesus travelled through cities and villages,
preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom,
bringing healing to the sick,
while the crowds followed him:

Seeing them like a flock of sheep,
abandoned, and without a shepherd,
he said, “The harvest is great,
but the labourers are few.”

Having called to him the Twelve,
he gave them every power
to cast out evil spirits
and heal every kind of sickness.

Their names are Peter and Andrew,
James, John and Philip,
Bartholomew, Thaddeus, Thomas and Matthew,
James, Simon, and Judas who then betrayed him.

Blessed is Peter who recognised him:
it was not flesh or blood
that revealed to him that Jesus
was the true Son of God.

Blessed are Peter, James, and John,
on the mountain, together with the Lord,
when his face was transfigured,
and they heard the voice of the Father.

They had left everything
and followed him everywhere.
They will sit with him at the end,
and will receive eternal life.

The leaders dominate the nations,
but among the disciples let it not be like this;
the one who wishes to be great
should become servant of all.

Blessed is Peter who wept
because he was afraid to confess him.
Sad instead is Judas who through fear
sold him for thirty pieces of silver.

Blessed is Paul who, on the road to Damascus,
encountered the Lord.
He had been tenacious for the tradition,
but then announced him to the world.

Of one heart in prayer, the Apostles
together with the Mother of God,
were filled with the Holy Spirit,
and began to speak to the people.
