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 10,24-33
Jesus said to his Apostles: “No disciple is above his teacher, no slave above his master. It is enough for the disciple that he
become like his teacher, for the slave that he become like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul,
how much more those of his household! Therefore do not be afraid of them. Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, nor
secret that will not be known. What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim on the
housetops. And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy
both soul and body in Gehenna. Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without
your Father’s knowledge. Even all the hairs of your head are counted. So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many
sparrows. Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. But whoever denies
me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father.”

In the Conduct of Christian Schools, our founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle emphasized that one quality a new teacher
must acquire is: “facility in speaking and expressing oneself clearly and with order and in a way that the children one teaches
can grasp.” (pp.263-264) This is not only important for academic instruction, it is also a necessary skill in cultivating the
spiritual life of students. Jesus said to his apostles: “What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear
whispered, proclaim on the housetops.” We are invited to profess and live our faith in the daily circumstances of our life. We
should strive to practice what we preach. Are we aware that active witnessing of faith begins with an overflow of the interior life?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “Avenues and opportunities for self-propelled individual, collective and institutional life-affirming action to
respond to varied social issues must be provided in every Lasallian institution.” As Lasallians, we are encouraged to open our
ears to listen and use our voices to proclaim God’s good news. Let us allow ourselves to be filled with knowledge by God’s
love and proclaim it to many.

Synod on Synodality Prayer
We stand before You, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in Your name.
With You alone to guide us, Make Yourself at home in our hearts;
Teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it.
We are weak and sinful; do not let us promote disorder.
Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path nor partiality influence our actions.
Let us find in You our unity so that we may journey together to eternal life and not stray from the way of truth and what is right.
All this we ask of You, who are at work in every place and time, in the communion of the Father and the Son, forever and ever.
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.
