Matthew 5, 1-12

Date posted: June 10, 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 5, 1-12
Monday (June 10): Woman, behold, your son! Disciple, behold, your mother!
Gospel: John 19:25-34 (alternate reading: Matthew 5:1-12)
Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home. After this Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfil the scripture), “I thirst.” A bowl full of vinegar stood there; so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on hyssop and held it to his mouth. When son,Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, “It is finished”; and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. Since it was the day of Preparation, in order to prevent the bodies from remaining on the cross on the sabbath (for that sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who had been crucified with him; but when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water.

Reflection
There will be times that challenges and hardships will test us, it is up to us on how we are going to take this problem and reflect on it. Our happiness is depends on ourselves through peace, joy and contentment. We should realize that we are blessed on every little things and we should be happy on it. Also, being humble, peacemaker, gentle and kind is what really need to achieve the optimum happiness that Jesus wants us to feel. God is always there for us and He will always guide us towards the right path.

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “…reverence for life allows one to be punctual and respectful of other people’s time…” It allows us to exert the same respect and care to each and everyone. It also gives us the opportunity to be mindful of what matters the most and on what will result to common good. Individual must learn for himself or herself the difference between “good” and “evil”. With this in our mind, we could live in a world that is full of equality while having the highest standard of morality.

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.
