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 4, 26-34
Jesus said to the crowds: "This is how it is with the Kingdom of God; it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land and
would sleep and rise night and day and the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how. Of its own accord the land yields
fruit, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once, for the
harvest has come." He said, "To what shall we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable can we use for it? It is like a
mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth. But once it is sown, it springs up
and becomes the largest of plants and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade." With
many such parables he spoke the word to them as they were able to understand it. Without parables he did not speak to
them, but to his own disciples he explained everything in private.

Reflection
The Gospel shows us that the kingdom of God grows of its own impetus in the world, and nobody can stop it, like good seed
growing underground. Enough for us to be patient, a seed growing slowly, animated by your spirit. God is the God of here,
there and everywhere. What kind of seed am I?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “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 be sensitive to other people around us so that we may
know how we contribute to the mission. Let us allow ourselves to spread the seeds of goodness to the community.

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.
