Matthew 5:13-16

Date posted: February 9, 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.

 

Matthew 5:13-16
“You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for
anything except to be thrown out and trodden under foot by men. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill
cannot be hid. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

Reflection
Jesus used ordinary images, such as salt and light, to convey extraordinary truths that transform our minds, hearts,
and lives. Jesus used the image of salt to describe the transforming effect of God’s work in our lives – and how the
Holy Spirit wants to work through us to bring the power and blessing of God’s kingdom to others. How do we become salt and light to other people?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “Every individual needs to be constantly exposed to or immersed in the pressing social problems to
which we subsequently aim to contribute a resolution.” Now, we are facing various problems ranging from the social
class of people and even the church. As Lasallians, we are challenged to find solutions or become part of that solution. We are tasked to understand the root cause of the problem and respond to it using our eyes of faith where everybody is equal and just.

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.
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.
