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.
When Jesus had washed the disciples’ feet, he said to them: “Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master
nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you understand this, blessed are you if you do it. I am not speaking
of all of you. I know those whom I have chosen. But so that the scripture might be fulfilled, ‘The one who ate my food has
raised his heel against me.’ From now on I am telling you before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe that I AM. Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.”
The gospel tells us that whatever we do to the least and most marginalized people we do it to Him. This challenges us that we, as children of God, are responsible to each other and do all our best to bring goodness to everyone. Our reason for doing it is
that we do it not for ourselves but for God who created us and formed us in His own image and likeness. How do I deal with people who harmed me?
Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that “zeal… is a passionate commitment to realize God’s will which, in Lasallian terms, is the integral liberation and
salvation of all, especially the youth and the poor.” In relation to the gospel, we are invited to commit ourselves to do good.
When we do it, especially to the least ones, then, we are actually doing those things to God. As Lasallians, we don’t just show
acts of kindness to those people whom we know would be able to return what we did but we do it more to those who belong to
the marginalized sector. Let us allow ourselves to be the arms of God’s mercy and compassion for others.
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 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.
