Matthew 5:20-26

Date posted: June 13, 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 5:20-26
For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. You have heard that it was said to those of old, “You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgement. But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgement, whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, “You fool!” Will be liable to hell of fire. So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother and then come and offer your gift. Come to terms quickly with your accuser while you are going with him to court, less your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison. Truly, I say to you, you will never get out until you have paid last penny.

Anger is part of our emotions, there comes a time where it is really hard to control because there are a lot of factors that triggers it. In the Gospel for today Jesus taught us to reflect on what we do when we are angry and learn from it, he taught us what we should not do when we are angry because it doesn’t pleases him and there is always a consequence in what we do intentionally or unintentionally. When we are angry,we are at the at that state where we can’t really decide properly due to how we are feeling. Most likely we will choose a decision that we will regret later on so its better to let your anger pass on before deciding.

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “…reverence for life allows one to exercise prudence and be respectful to others, there is a time where our emotions really controls us and we do not know what we are doing especially in stressful situations. People who cannot control their own emotions are having a hard time deciding on things. When we know how to calm down when those situations arise because if we know how to calm down we can deal with any situations. A
good example of this is when we are in the state of anger, we tend to decide things that won’t benefit us but if we know how to control our anger we let it pass by first and decide things after our anger is completely gone.

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.
