Acts 11:  21- 26, 13: 1- 3

11:21 And the hand of the Lord was with them. And a great number believed and were converted to the Lord.
11:22 Now the news came to the ears of the Church at Jerusalem about these things, and they sent Barnabas as far as Antioch.
11:23 And when he had arrived there and had seen the grace of God, he was gladdened. And he exhorted them all to continue in the Lord with a resolute heart.
11:24 For he was a good man, and he was filled with the Holy Spirit and with faith. And a great multitude was added to the Lord.
11:25 Then Barnabas set out for Tarsus, so that he might seek Saul. And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch.
11:26 And they were conversing there in the Church for an entire year. And they taught such a great multitude, that it was at Antioch that the disciples were first known by the name of Christian.
13:1 Now there were, in the Church at Antioch, prophets and teachers, among whom were Barnabas, and Simon, who was called the Black, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manahen, who was the foster brother of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
13:2 Now as they were ministering for the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said to them: “Separate Saul and Barnabas for me, for the work for which I have selected them.”
13:3 Then, fasting and praying and imposing their hands upon them, they sent them away.

The Holy Gospel According to Matthew 10: 7-13

10:7 Because of this, a man shall leave behind his father and mother, and he shall cling to his wife.
10:8 And these two shall be one in flesh. And so, they are now, not two, but one flesh.
10:9 Therefore, what God has joined together, let no man separate.”
10:10 And again, in the house, his disciples questioned him about the same thing.
10:11 And he said to them: “Whoever dismisses his wife, and marries another, commits adultery against her.
10:12 And if a wife dismisses her husband, and is married to another, she commits adultery.”
10:13 And they brought to him the little children, so that he might touch them. But the disciples admonished those who brought them.
