Luke 19:41-44

Date posted: November 22, 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 19:41-44
As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, “If you, even you, had only known on this day
what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. The days will come upon you when your enemies
will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you.”

Reflection
In the gospel, Jesus wept when he saw the city, showing his frustration to the actions of the people. They chose to do
things that they wanted rather than following the will of the Father. Sometimes, we are like them, we were blinded by
our ideas and personal concerns that hinder us to see the plan of God for us. As believers, are we willing to obey His commands?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
Our Lasallian Guiding Principle states that the spirit of faith involves trusting God always, abandoning myself into his hands. Trusting him always even if it means losing or doing something we didn’t plan is a great sign of our eagerness to follow Him with all our hearts. As Lasallians, we are challenged by God to discern the movement of the Holy Spirit as it works in our lives. Like our Founder St. John Baptist De La Salle who entrusted himself totally to God when he said, “Lord, the work is Yours.“

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.
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.
