Matthew 10:7-13

Date posted: June 11, 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: Matthew 10:7-13
Jesus said to his Apostles: “As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons. Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give.
Do not take gold or silver or copper for your belts; no sack for the journey, or a second tunic, or sandals, or walking stick.
The laborer deserves his keep.
Whatever town or village you enter, look for a worthy person in it, and stay there until you leave.
As you enter a house, wish it peace.
If the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it; if not, let your peace return to you.”

Reflection
In the gospel, Jesus said that his 12 apostles should preach the word of God in every way that they can.
That they should do thing without asking for something in return, the Lord will send his guidance through other people so they don’t need any material things with them. As we help others, we should always remember to help without any cost and without asking for anything in return because nowadays, people have become hypocrites who only help others for the sake of fame or when they need something for their own benefits. Also, provide themselves with no gold or silver, no shoes, and lastly seek a shelter where they can be received until the end of the mission, they must encompass and conveyor of peace.

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, reverence for life allows one to exercise prudence. Lasallian guiding principle articulates that good judgement or wisdom accumulated from experience and knowledge, expressed in a realistic and provident attitude. It lies in avoiding excessive deliberations and in the readiness to sacrifice today’s gain for tomorrow’s greater gain. For me, having the virtue of prudence as I continue to grow and mature is a must. Why? Because we are at the age group where we learn and get curious about new things and where we need to act as teenagers who’s young enough to try some things and old enough to do some things. With prudence, one will be able to understand what we need to do and what we need to avoid in our life.

One Heart Prayer
God, our Father, You love us with endless mercy. You call us to be your sons and daughters. You invite us to take care of the Earth, our common home. Lord, grant us a big heart. A heart always willing to love, a compassionate heart for those who suffer, a heart where there is a place for Lasallians all around the world. We make this prayer through the intercession of May, 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.
