John 3,16-21

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 3,16-21
God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might
have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through
him. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because
he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the verdict, that the light came into the world, but people
preferred darkness to light, because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not
come toward the light, so that his works might not be exposed. But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works
may be clearly seen as done in God.

Reflection
Today’s gospel gives us the absolute and greatest gift that we have received as believers – the gift of Jesus. God sent His
only Son for the salvation of our sins and is not an easy mission because it requires pain and suffering to save us. God
deemed that we were important enough to Him and was willing to lose His son to save us. In what way do I experience God’s love?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “In De La Salle’s thinking, faith and zeal are inseparable, two dimensions of one spirit.” We know how great
the love of God for all of us. He offered his only begotten Son to save us from the slavery of sin. As Lasallians, we need to
imbibe the spirit of faith heralding the Good news from the Risen Lord. Let us allow ourselves to increase our faith in in the
Lord proclaiming the true hope in this trying 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 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.
