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 10,16-23
‘See, I am sending you out like sheep into the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as
doves. Beware of them, for they will hand you over to councils and flog you in their synagogues; and you
will be dragged before governors and kings because of me, as a testimony to them and the Gentiles.
When they hand you over, do not worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say; for what you
are to say will be given to you at that time; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father
speaking through you. Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child, and children will rise
against parents and have them put to death; and you will be hated by all because of my name. But the one
who endures to the end will be saved. When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next; for truly I tell
you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

Often we face hatred and hostility when we try to live a Christian life. Many will persecute and will rise
against us while we stand for our beliefs. Several of us may continue living as witness of God's truth. A few
may go weary and surrender. But God said worry not about what to do or to say. Instead, be wise for He
will be our words and actions. Our endurance will bring us to salvation. Many of us wish for peace and a
worry-free Christian life. How often do we seek God’s wisdom when facing challenges?

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.” Lasallians are challenged to work for justice especially for
the vulnerable. “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Respect human dignity regardless
of religion, status, color, political, economic and socio- cultural affiliations. Now, we are convinced that we
need to protect human rights since this is the foundation of peace, justice and freedom in the world.

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.
