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.

 

Mark 3, 22-30
And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, "He has Beelzebul, and by the ruler of the demons he casts out
demons." And he called them to him, and spoke to them in parables, "How can Satan cast out Satan? If a kingdom is divided
against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. And if
Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but his end has come. But no one can enter a strong
man's house and plunder his property without first tying up the strong man; then indeed the house can be plundered. "Truly I
tell you, people will be forgiven for their sins and whatever blasphemies they utter; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy
Spirit can never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin" – for they had said, "He has an unclean spirit.”

Reflection
The Gospel teaches us to avoid blasphemy as the everlasting sin against the Holy Spirit. We need to trust in the divine power
and kindness Jesus. With Him, all sins in the world and all evil will be gone in his name. We believe in Jesus’ sacred birth and
the power of His sacrifice. For the Holy Spirit direct us in His keeping. Am I willing to submit myself to the promptings of the Holy Spirit?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
As stated in the LGP, “Every individual needs to be constantly exposed to or immersed in the pressing social problems to
which we subsequently aim to contribute a resolution.” As Lasallians, we need to perform our duty in each ministry assigned to
us in accordance with the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Let us allow ourselves as modern heralds of God’s Eternal Word
especially 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.
