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 13, 36-43
Jesus dismissed the crowds and went into the house. His disciples approached him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.” He said in reply, “He who sows good seed is the Son of Man, the field is the world, the good seed the
children of the kingdom. The weeds are the children of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is
the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. Just as weeds are collected and burned (up) with fire, so will it be at the
end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all who cause others to sin and all
evildoers. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. Then the righteous will
shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears ought to hear.”
The Gospel is reminding us that we live in a world where good and evil are intertwined. Jesus warns that only at the end of
time will all be resolved. In the meantime, we are not to despair in the face of evil, but to trust that God can bring good out of human evil. Do I always choose the supreme good amidst the evil things in this world?
Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “The goal of social development interventions is to preserve and bring forth the fullness of life.” As
we ought to always choose the supreme good though temptations and evil are always around us, and this is how we can
have the fullness of life. Let us allow God always to keep and deliver us from evil.
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.
