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 6,44-51
Jesus said, ‘No one can come to me unless drawn by the Father who sent me; and I will raise that person up on the last day. It
is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes
to me. Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father. Very truly, I tell you,
whoever believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is
the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from
heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.’

Reflection
Our lives are formed by the choices that we make.  We become our choice. Our past guides us who we will be in the future. Every day, we need to strive to choose the direction that we desire. The most important choice that we will ever make is the choice of listening to God and learning from him. Jesus tells us that no one can come to him unless God draws us to Jesus. With the Grace of God we can find the strength to make the choices that will transform us and Jesus will lead us to everlasting life. What are my concrete ways to inherit Eternal life?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, Zeal is… “a passionate commitment to realize God’s will…” The life of St. John Baptist De La Salle is itself a
real picture of how to follow Jesus. He was a man of prayer and a man of service. He brought the salvation of Christ by
forming teachers to mold the poor children of France into a responsible Christian and an accountable citizen of the state. The vocation to do the same is clearly illustrated in the Lasallian Guiding Principles. We Lasallians, are called to actively express
our faith in the gospel and witness to it in our loving service for the poor. Let us allow ourselves to follow Christ and the good examples of our founder.

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.
