Matthew 6:7-15

Date posted: June 20, 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 6:7-15
Jesus said, “When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. ‘Pray then in this way: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

Here comes the golden rule which states that, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Jesus educates us on how we should pray for the things we need. When we ask, we should only ask for what is right and not in excess because we should also think the welfare of other people. In that prayer we are thought of the golden rule which only implies that what our God can do should also be done by his followers. We should not think high of ourselves because God gave his only son just for the salvation of His people.

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that "Reaching out to the less fortunate people shows reverence for life, allows one to lead by example of lasallian who changes lives of others for the betterment of all.”
A practical way to show the love of God towards us is by helping other people. It can be done in simple ways that could make a huge difference to a person’s life. The help that you will give to others should be sincere, true and without the expectation of getting anything in return. The greatest gift you may receive with this act and kind gesture are the lessons, enrichment and the fulfillment of your purpose in 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.
