Daily Lasallian Reflection and Prayer
Monday, 1st June 2020

Mk 12:6-11

Date posted: June 1, 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.

 

Mk 12:6-11
“He had one other to send, a beloved son. He sent him to them last of all, thinking, ‘They will respect my
son.’ But those tenants said to one another, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will
be ours.’ So they seized him and killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard. What (then) will the owner
of the vineyard do? He will come, put the tenants to earth, and give the vineyard to others. Have you not
read this scripture passage: ‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; by the Lord
has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes’?”

Reflection
In the Gospel, the vineyard is well equipped with everything the tenants need which represents His Creation
that He has entrusted to us. God, likewise, trusts us enough to give us freedom to live life. He has been
patient and forgiving despite our wrongdoings. God sent His only Son and if we trust the Lord, our labor is
not in vain. In what way do we work for the Lord’s vineyard?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “Individually and collectively, Lasallians must act to eliminate forms of human suffering that
contradict God’s plan of fullness of life.” We must live our life with honesty and we should practice a set of
moral beliefs that will help us become better citizens. Doing work with utmost effort and sincerity makes the
world a better place to live in. As Lasallian, we are supposed to respect and help each other grow and live
life with uprightness and order in accordance to His will.

Oratio Imperata Against the COVID-19
God our Father, we come to You in our need to ask Your protection
against the COVID-19 that has disturbed us and claimed many lives.
We pray that You guide the people tasked
to find cure for this disease and to stem its transmission.
Protect the medical experts and healthcare personnel
that they may minister to the sick with competence and compassion.
We pray for those afflicted, may they be restored to health soon.
Protect those who care for them.
Grant eternal rest to those who have died.
Give us grace in this trying time to work for the good of all and to help those in need.
We implore You to stop the spread of this virus and to save us from our fears.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son
who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever. 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.
