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.
Jesus went up the mountain and called to him those whom he wanted, and they came to him. And he appointed twelve, whom
he also named apostles, to be with him, and to be sent out to proclaim the message, and to have authority to cast out
demons. So he appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter); James son of Zebedee and John the brother
of James (to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder); and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and
Matthew, and Thomas, and James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who
betrayed him. Then he went home.
When Jesus embarked on his mission he chose twelve men for the task of preaching the Kingdom of God and healing
the sick. Jesus chose ordinary people. He wanted ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Jesus chose them for
their capabilities and strength. Each of us is called based on capabilities and abilities. How do I respond to the call of Jesus?
Lasallian Guiding Principle
As stated in the LGP, “Lasallian institutions must strive to develop among its members greater recognition of the realities of
human suffering and the stewardship role that each shares in preserving the integrity of God’s creation and creating a humane
and just society.” Let us always live in faith. As Lasallians, may we always be ready to respond “Yes” to every situation that
needed our service. It is our call as true Christians and true Lasallians. Let us allow ourselves as modern disciples in this
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.
