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.

Gospel: Matthew 13,31-35
Jesus proposed a parable to the crowds. “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a person took and sowed in a
field. It is the smallest of all the seeds, yet when full-grown it is the largest of plants. It becomes a large bush, and the ‘birds of
the sky come and dwell in its branches.’”He spoke to them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a
woman took and mixed with three measures of wheat flour until the whole batch was leavened.” All these things Jesus spoke
to the crowds in parables. He spoke to them only in parables, to fulfill what had been said through the prophet: “I will open my
mouth in parables, I will announce what has lain hidden from the foundation of the world.”

In today’s Gospel, we can see how Jesus spoke about small things, how he found significance in what might easily be overlooked. We allow Jesus to look at our lives even in our humble tasks that we perform for the glory of God. What small things with great love can I do for His glory? (Jenic S. de Guia)

Lasallian Guiding Principle:
LGP states that, “The goal of social development interventions is to preserve and bring forth the fullness of life.” As Lasallians, we believe that there is fullness of life when we follow God’s will. We have different responsibilities to God and no matter how big or small our actions might be, as long as we do it for God, there would be a great reward. Let us allow ourselves to always put love even in simple things that we are doing. (Jenic S. de Guia)

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. 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.
