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 15,26-27.16,1-4a
Jesus said to the disciples, “When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who comes
from the Father, he will testify on my behalf. You also are to testify because you have been with me from the beginning. I have
said these things to you to keep you from stumbling. They will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, an hour is coming when
those who kill you will think that by doing so they are offering worship to God. And they will do this because they have not
known the Father or me. But I have said these things to you so that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you
about them. I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you.”

Reflection
The gospel reminds us that we are Jesus’ witnesses. St. Francis of Assisi once told, that we are to preach by our lives, only
occasionally in words. If we are transformed by God let others say that we are indeed transformed because our way of life
testifies to it. How Am I going to testify the power of God in this COVID-19 pandemic?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “In De La Salle’s thinking, faith and zeal are inseparable, two dimensions of one spirit.” As Lasallians we
need to attune ourselves to the Holy Spirit every moment of our lives. Let us allow ourselves to remain steadfast in our commitment to Jesus.

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.
