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 6,22-29
The next day the crowd that had stayed on the other side of the lake saw that there had been only one boat there. They also
saw that Jesus had not got into the boat with his disciples, but that his disciples had gone away alone. Then some boats from
Tiberias came near the place where they had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks. So when the crowd saw that
neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into the boats and went to Capernaum looking for Jesus.
When they found him on the other side of the lake, they said to him, ‘Rabbi, when did you come here?’ Jesus answered them,
‘Very truly, I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. Do not
work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For it is on him
that God the Father has set his seal.' Then they said to him, 'What must we do to perform the works of God?' Jesus answered
them, 'This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.'

 

Reflection
Sometimes we fail to see meaning behind miracles. We only see what is in front of us, missing the signs that entail something
greater. The crowd did not follow Jesus because of the astounding miracle he presented to them, but because they wanted
more of his gifts. However, there were some who were satisfied with what was given to them and chose to stay behind. It is
gratitude that prevents the pursuit of what may be unnecessary. That is the work of God, he helps us realize what should be
pursued and to what extent this should be followed through. Do I still acknowledge the miracles of God in me?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, Zeal is… “a passionate commitment to realize God’s will…” Just like in the gospel, commit your life on
something worthwhile and fruitful for this will become eternal life. Our founder, De La Salle devoted his whole life to provide
education for unprivileged children. He surrendered himself to the will of God and his calling for service. Not only did he give
hope for future generations to come, but he changed the flow of history for good. Let this be an inspiration for fellow
Lasallians, to look their hearts deeper. Realizing to what extent they can offer to others. From there, everything will fall into place.

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.
