Holy Gospel: Luke 10:17-20
P: The Holy Gospel according to Luke.
C: Glory to you, O Lord.
The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!” And he said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
P: This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C: Praise be to You, O Christ.
