Matthew 6, 19-23

Date posted: June 21, 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 6, 19-23
Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal.
But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
The lamp of the body is the eye. If your eye is sound, your whole body will be filled with light; but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be in darkness.
And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be.”

Status has been the standard or norm of the people in this world, and they are trying to achieve status by buying or loaning materials. However, we should be following against the world’s doings. Money and material things are temporary, and they do not bring sustainable happiness and eternal peace. Our real treasure is found within ourselves and in how we perceive and value our bodies and our gifts that God has blessed us with. We should be content with what we have and live our lives with gratitude and humility.

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “…reverence for life allows one to lead by example…”
To act in reverence is to act ethically without being told to. It is doing what is right and doing it wholeheartedly. It is thinking about the repercussions of our actions and deciding on which routes are the best to take. Acting in reverence is recognizing that doing things impulsively may ruin another person and can lead to hurt and disappointment. Additionally, having reverence is having a deep respect for life, it is showing gratefulness to God for the life he has given us, hence, we value it. We choose what is only best for us, we avoid displeasing the people who love us, and we are more careful with how we treat others.

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.
