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.

 

John 14, 21-26
Jesus said to his disciples: “Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me. Whoever loves
me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.” Judas, not the Iscariot, said to him, “Master,
(then) what happened that you will reveal yourself to us and not to the world?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Whoever
loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him. Whoever
does not love me does not keep my words; yet the word you hear is not mine but that of the Father who sent me. I have told
you this while I am with you. The Advocate, the Holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name–he will teach you everything
and remind you of all that (I) told you.”

Reflection
The Gospel tells us that if we love Jesus, then, we will observe the commandments. However, it is easy for us to look for love
elsewhere with the use of online applications and social media. We crave it to the point that we almost beg it from others when
all this time Jesus and God already loves us constantly. How can I encounter and experience God using our gadgets or social media in this time?

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.” As the famous saying goes, action speaks louder than words, and
these actions to share God’s love would not be without the passion that God has implanted in each one of us. This zeal is not
only for us to share with others but also for us to improve on ourselves so that we would be able to share better God’s
blessing to others. Let us allow ourselves to be a blessing 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.
