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 departed with his disciples to the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee followed him; hearing all that he was doing,
they came to him in great numbers from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, beyond the Jordan, and the region around Tyre and
Sidon. He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, so that they would not crush him; for he had
cured many, so that all who had diseases pressed upon him to touch him. Whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they fell
down before him and shouted, "You are the Son of God!" But he sternly ordered them not to make him known.
Jesus was healing and preaching few people and when the word was passed unto other countries, many came to Jesus for
they want to be healed. Even Impure spirits shouted at him that he is the son of God. Many people recognize Jesus as the
son of God only at times we need healing or enlightenment. A crowd of people praise and worship God but only few deepens
their relationship with him. But the message is clear, even though Jesus needs rest he still continues to give time for us. Thus,
we should always desire to deepen our relationship with God. Do I still give time for 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.” As Lasallians, we need to dedicate time for prayer and deepen our relationship with God, for in Him we see
our life and complete. Let us allow ourselves to be like Jesus always give time for our needy brothers and sisters.
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.
