John 16, 23B-28

Date posted: June 1, 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.

Gospel: John 16, 23B-28
In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
“Though I have been speaking figuratively, a time is coming when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father.
In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf.
No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God.
I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.”

Reflection
We must never question God’s love for us because God’s is so loving that there is nothing he will not grant to complete our joy. Jesus is like God in this manner for he too will grant us our desires if we call upon his name. We must include Jesus in our wishes for us to be open to the will of God. God will never abandon his children even if his children abandons him. He has eternal love for his creation.

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “…reverence for life allows one to be punctual and respectful of other people’s time…”
As the popular saying goes: “time is gold”, every second in the clock is important. We each cherish different moments in our lives, and we often wish to live by those moments once more. But the thing about time is that it can’t be brought back; once it passed, it’s already done. That’s why we must seize every moment of our lives with the grace of God and not waste every second of it. By being grateful for the life that God gave us, respecting other people’s time especially our own, we will be able to live a life with regrets and no time wasted.

Prayer
Holy Lord, thank You for Your grace. You have blessed us with your love through Your child, Jesus Christ. Your love that has been our universal supply of strength in our daily lives. With Your love rested upon our hearts and minds, nourish our capabilities in order to proclaim joy and peace in this world You entrusted to us. Allow our perspective to be filled with the moments we value the most and let that be an instrument to be able to fulfill our responsibility to our brothers and sisters and especially to You, our Lord. Teach us, Your children, to practice being considerate to other people’s space and time. Show us the light we need in order to guide those who are still locked up and are anxious to surrender their hearts to You. We can achieve everything through Your name.
Our Lady of the Star pray for us.
St. John Baptist de La Salle, pray for us.
St. Miguel Febres Cordero, pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts, forever!
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
