Daily Lasallian Reflection and Prayer
Sunday, 13th June 2021

Matthew 5,13-16

Date posted: June 8, 2021

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
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘You are the salt of the earth. But if salt becomes tasteless, what can make it salty again? It is
good for nothing, and can only be thrown out to be trampled underfoot by men. ‘You are the light of the world. A city built on a
hill-top cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp to put it under a tub; they put it on the lamp-stand where it shines for everyone
in the house. In the same way your light must shine in the sight of men, so that, seeing your good works, they may give the
praise to your Father in heaven.’

Reflection
The Gospel is telling us to be salt, is the most necessary spice. When added to food, it enhances other flavors in the
ingredients. Likewise, we are called to be the salt for the earth and light of the world to bring out the truth and goodness of
the world not only in ourselves but in others. What does salt mean for me? What does light mean for me?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “Individually and collectively, Lasallians must act to eliminate forms of human suffering that contradict the
God’s plan of fullness of life.” As Lasallians, we need to live and witness our faith. Let us allow ourselves to be salt of the earth
and light of the world in this present times.

MISSION PRAYER 2021 Year of Missio Ad Gentes CBCP
God, our loving Father, You sent your Son into the world to proclaim the Good News of Salvation to all: to sinners, the poor,
oppressed, the sick, the abandoned and neglected. He gave His life on the Cross for us and rose again to new life to redeem
us and reconcile us with you. You sent Your Holy Spirit to the Apostles to continue the work of Your Son and to lead all to
salvation. We thank you, Father, for bringing us from darkness into light. Through Your loving plan, 500 years ago,
missionaries came to our land to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus, Your Son, to our ancestors that made us your people and the
Church. The gift of faith has accompanied us through both darkness and lights, defeats and victories of our history as your
people. Our faith has become for us true light that shines in the darkness. Renew in us the grace of your Spirit that impels us
to be witnesses of Jesus, Your Son, to a world broken by greed, violence, injustice, sickness and suffering. May our faith bring
us to unity as your children to care for, and love one another. May the Holy Spirit empower us to be proclaimers of the Good
News to our brothers and sisters in Asia, and to all nations. Give us the sincere desire to help others to come to faith in the
Lord Jesus to share in your joy and life. May the Blessed Mother, the Star of Evangelization, accompany us and pray for us as
we live and share our faith with others. May our strong love and devotion to her as our Mahal na Ina form us to be true
disciples and witnesses of Jesus to all, always ready to be sent, and to be obedient to whatever Jesus asks of us. We ask this
through Jesus Christ, Your
Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen.
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.
