The Reign of Christ. Book Two. Chapter Seven: The Source and Support of the Evangelists and Pastors of the Churches

Who will pay the expenses for these evangelists? But who else should very obviously have this obligation but those who receive the incomes of parishes where the evangelists will go to preach Christ’s gospel in their stead? And if what is obtained from them for such necessary work is not enough, the remainder will most justly be requested of the bishops, whose proper task it is to send out and support not only evangelists for the churches committed to their charge but also permanent teachers and shepherds.
