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 6,1-15
Jesus went across the Sea of Galilee. A large crowd followed him, because they saw the signs he was performing on the sick.
Jesus went up on the mountain, and there he sat down with his disciples. The Jewish feast of Passover was near. When
Jesus raised his eyes and saw that a large crowd was coming to him, he said to Philip, “Where can we buy enough food for them to eat?” He said this to test him, because he himself knew what he was going to do. Philip answered him, “Two hundred
days’ wages worth of food would not be enough for each of them to have a little (bit).” One of his disciples, Andrew, the
brother of Simon Peter, said to him, There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what good are these for so many? Jesus said, “Have the people recline.” Now there was a great deal of grass in that place. So the men reclined, about
five thousand in number. Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed them to those who were reclining, and also
as much of the fish as they wanted. When they had had their fill, he said to his disciples, “Gather the fragments left over, so
that nothing will be wasted.” So they collected them, and filled twelve wicker baskets with fragments from the five barley
loaves that had been more than they could eat. When the people saw the sign he had done, they said, “This is truly the
Prophet, the one who is to come into the world." Since Jesus knew that they were going to come and carry him off to make him king, he withdrew again to the mountain alone.

Reflection
In accordance with the gospel, Jesus reminds us to learn to open our hearts for there is abundance of blessings for all. In this
time of trouble, we are invited to hold on to our faith and keep on believing that this threat brought to us by Covid19 will soon
come to an end. Let us do remember to pray and extend our help to those who are in need. How do I respond to the signs of the times?

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 are
reminded, that nothing is impossible if we have faith in God, the gospel today provides a revelation of God’s divinity. Our
resources are never enough, but God has limitless resources, enough for us to do what God wants to be done. Let us allow ourselves to live in the eyes of faith.

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.
