Luke 12:8-12

Date posted: October 19, 2019

Let us all remember that we are in the Holy presence of God.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

 

Luke 12:8-12 
“And I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before men, the Son of man also will acknowledge before the angels of God; but he who denies me before men will be denied before the angels of God. And every one who speaks a word against the Son of man will be forgiven; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. And when they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not be anxious how or what you are to answer or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”

 

Reflection
Do you trust in God's help and deliverance? The gospel is about God’s blessing and how people shouldn’t deny it and always be thankful to God. The scriptural expression to deny someone means to disown them is explained that in when times are hard it is just challenges and we should not blame God because it was given to develop and make us stronger in life. It is also tells me to always be faithful to God no matter what happen because God will never challenge me that I cannot handle. One biggest lesson that I will never forget is when I was in PMA. Every day was like a year and I became so hopeless. Despite of trials I continue praying till one day I begun to love my life in the academy and become a good cadet. Let us pray for the guidance of God always and the strength to carry on to help me especially in the most challenging times.

 

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “the Spirit of Faith is a spirit that allows one to unite one’s action to the on-going saving action of God in the world”. We can connect the LGP to the gospel in many ways but the most remarkable one is praying will be the key in any problem that were having no matter how hard or crocked we are all we need to do is to pray and all of our problems will go away. The gospel is connected to the life of the founder in a matter the he didn’t gave up even though he had problems and to be honest this problems was not easy because he experienced financial and cultural issues during that time but didn’t gave up. SJBDLS prayed and many people noticed his good deeds which makes many people help him. The challenge will be not giving up in life and trusting God will take away our sorrows. Now a days, many people forget to pray and some commit suicide without even trying to fight. On today’s Gospel, God tells us that He will never abandon us. Let us believe and pray to God and miracles will happen.

 

One Life Prayer
Holy Spirit
You love us and offer us the gift of association.
You call us to live with joy
You invite us to be people with a creative inner life
Lord, grant us your strength for a life full of meaning
Fill us with your grace so that we will live the values of the gospel.
Our inner life will grow
And that we will be credible witnesses
Together with the entire Lasallian Family
In the midst of our world.
We make this prayer through the intercession of Mary
Queen and Mother of the Christian Schools, and through
The intercession of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, patron of teachers. Amen.
Our Lady of the Star, pray for us.
