Mark 2:1-12

Date posted: January 17, 2020

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.

 

 

Mark 2:1-12
And when he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home. And many were gathered
together, so that there was no longer room for them, not even about the door; and he was preaching the word to them. And they came, bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men. And when they could not get near him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him; and when they had made an opening, they let down the pallet on which the paralytic lay. And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “My son, your sins are forgiven.”

Reflection
Do you know the healing power of forgiveness and compassion? Jesus’ treatment of sinners upset the religious
teachers of the day. When a cripple was brought to Jesus because of the faith of his friends, Jesus did the
unthinkable. He first forgave the man his sins. The Lord is every ready to bring us healing of body, mind, and spirit.
Is there any area in your life that cripples you from walking in the freedom of Christ’s transforming love and
forgiveness?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “…the communion in mission is a spirit that allows one to trust one another…” This statement tells us that gaining trust for someone is by being committed to your mission and to do it with all your heart. Only then he/she will see that you are worthy of the trust that we will receive.

Prayer for the Year of Ecumenism, Inter-Religious Dialogue and Indigenous Peoples
Almighty, Ever-living God, the most Merciful and Compassionate, we thank You for Creation and the life You have
given us. Together, we people of diverse religions, spiritual expressions and indigenous traditions who invoke You by
different names, humbly pray that You give us the opportunity to encounter each other through Dialogue, to reach
mutual respect and reciprocal acceptance of each other, and to break down the walls of division that stand at the
center of most misunderstandings and conflicts.
Make us instruments of Your Light, Love and Peace. Guide us to walk always in Your Path and be a source of hope
to everyone so that we may discover Your Divine Presence in each other.
Show us the way to Harmony and Unity to reach the fullness of human fraternity. Give us the wisdom to discern the
Truth and to freely choose what is right and just to make this world a better place to live in.Together, we ask You for
the wisdom and the courage to fulfil Your Will that all may be ONE. Amen
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.
