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.

 

Matthew 10,1-7
Then Jesus summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out,
and to cure every disease and every sickness. These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon,
also known as Peter, and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; Philip and
Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the
Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, the one who betrayed him. These twelve Jesus sent out with the following
instructions: “Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the
lost sheep of the house of Israel. As you go, proclaim the good news, ‘The kingdom of heaven has come
near.’

Reflection
When God called the 12 disciples, He did not only give them instructions – the what’s and the why’s. At the
same time, He also gave them authority, the power to do His ministry. Imagine what we would be capable
of doing if we will all offer our everyday, our every effort, to do God’s work. I can clearly imagine a better
world, a more peaceful world where the weak will not be taken advantage of, the helpless not oppressed,
the sick not abandoned. In this world, our children will thrive, our children can be the best that they want to
be. Am I ready to give my big yes to the Lord’s mission?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “Individually and collectively, Lasallians must act to eliminate forms of human suffering
that contradict the God’s plan of fullness of life.” As Lasallians, especially here at DLSMHSI where our
ministry is focused on healing. Everything we do here, is dedicated towards the preservation of life. And
every day, we pray to the Lord, we ask for His divine grace to lead us every day and in everything we in
our community for his greater glory.

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 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.
