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, 47-53
Jesus said to the disciples: “The Kingdom of heaven is like a net thrown into the sea, which collects fish of every kind. When it
is full they haul it ashore and sit down to put what is good into buckets. What is bad they throw away. Thus it will be at the end
of the age. The angels will go out and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the fiery furnace, where
there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. Do you understand all these things? They answered, “Yes.” And he replied, “Then every scribe who has been instructed in the kingdom of heaven is like the head of a household who brings from his storeroom both the new and the old." When Jesus finished these parables, he went away from there.
The Gospel presents us with an image of a fishnet. A net thrown into the sea catches a great variety of things. We are like this
net. Our senses and our mind are thrown into the world with many ideas. So many attractions and beautiful ideas but what is
important, the supreme good must be brought out among those ideas. We extract what is bad, throw away, and listen to the
God that reveals the supreme good unto us. What do I have to let go of so that I may be conform to his likeness?
Lasallian Guiding Principle
LGP states that, “The goal of social development interventions is to preserve and bring forth the fullness of life.” As
We need to imbibe the Lord’s wisdom through the parables. Let us allow God to bring out the best in us.
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.
