Luke 21:15-19

Date posted: November 27, 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 21:15-19
“Remember, you are not to prepare your defense beforehand, for I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute. You will even be handed over by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends, and they will put some of you to death. You will be hated by all because of my name, but not a hair on your head will be destroyed. By your perseverance you will secure your lives.”

Reflection
The gospel encourages us to persevere and be firmly rooted in Christ as reward awaits us in heaven at the end of all our sacrifices and hard work here on earth. Following the will of God is not an easy task but we are reminded today that Jesus is always on our side to guide and encourage us to be strong and faithful. What has been your biggest challenge while following the will of God?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
As stated in the LGP, “the spirit of faith is a spirit that allows one to search for God’s will in order to carry out His saving plan.” We are invited to stand firm and be faithful to God in times of trial just like our founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle, who victoriously faced all the challenges and continued his mission in responding to the needs of the people in the community. May we hold on to our faith in God at all times regardless of the trials that come along in our daily lives.

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.
