CFC-FFL COMMUNITY PRAYER 2018

Great and Almighty God, you are our Father in heaven, and you destine us to be as you are, as you call us to holiness and perfection. You set us as priests in our homes, and we offer ourselves as a living sacrifice to you.

Lord Jesus, we are your body on earth, a people of your own. You give us to each other as brethren and co-workers, caring for and loving each other and building up our community. Help us to grow in authentic servanthood as we renew the family and serve your Church.

Holy Spirit, you send us forth to proclaim the good news of salvation in Jesus. We are your holy warriors. Continue to equip and strengthen us, empower us to overcome the enemy, and let us bring your righteousness to the ends of the earth.

Triune God, we belong to you. We are nothing apart from you. But in you and with you and through you, we are destined for greatness. Send us forth, not to be high and mighty, but to be low and lowly. May all the glory be yours, now and forever.

Mother Mary, your soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, and the Mighty One has done great things for you. As your beloved children, lead us along the right paths, until we attain to the greatness that is our destiny.

Amen.




Canada Won't Fund Student Summer Jobs Unless Employers Support Abortion

by Lianne Laurence
OTTAWA, December 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The Liberal government of Justin Trudeau will ban any employer from receiving summer job grants for students if the employer doesn't first sign an “attestation” that they agree with abortion and transgender "rights." The new criteria were sent to all MPs and will be made public when the Canada Summer Jobs Program officially opens December 19, 2017. URGENT: Tell Justin Trudeau you oppose this attack on freedom of conscience. Sign the petition! Click here.

Canada Demands Pro-abortion, Pro-LGBT Loyalty Oath for Businesses  

December 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The tolerance of Justin Trudeau and his progressive government has struck again, just in time for Christmas­ and this time, it comes in the form of a demand that any organization seeking to apply for funding from the Canada Summer Jobs Program first give an “attestation” that they support an entire laundry list of far-left causes, including abortion, transgenderism, and the redefinition of marriage. This new ideological purity test will automatically exclude millions of Canadian Christians, Jews, Sikhs, and Muslims­essentially, anyone who differs from the government position on any “progressive” cause.



FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL OUR THEME FOR 2018 (Part 1)
DESTINED FOR GREATNESS

Our theme for this year 2017 is ONE in Christ, and we have seen that the critical elements that contribute to unity are threefold: holiness, servanthood and being warriors. We sum this up in the call to be holy warriors.

If we are to become holy warriors, united in heart and mind with our Commander-in-Chief, the Lord Jesus, being one in vision and mission, doing the one work, fighting the one enemy, then we would become one vibrant and cohesive body through which the Lord can achieve much.



FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL OUR THEME FOR 2018 (Part 53)
BEING PERFECT

The rich young man was a good person, observing the commandments of God (v.20a). He wanted to make it to heaven (v.16) and was told by Jesus that keeping the commandments would gain him entry (v.17c). But the young man yearned for more. “What do I still lack?” (v.20b). Jesus saw that he was yearning for perfection (v.21a). Jesus then told him to sell his possessions, give to the poor, and then follow him (v.21b). But the young man could not part with his possessions, and went away sad (v.22).




FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL OUR THEME FOR 2019 (Part 1)
FAMILIES ON MISSION

God has blessed us tremendously through all of 37 years, and especially during these times. He has been merciful to us, He has saved us, and He has poured out His bountiful blessings upon us. “But I trust in your mercy. Grant my heart joy in your salvation, I will sing to the Lord, for he has dealt bountifully with me!” (Ps 13:6). Our hearts must be full of joy.

Salvation has come through Jesus the Messiah, borne of the Virgin Mary, as “she who is to give birth has borne.” (Mi 5:2b). “Of her was born Jesus who is called the Messiah.” (Mt 1:16b). Jesus has taken “his place as shepherd by the strength of the Lord, by the majestic name of the Lord, his God” (Mi 5:3a). God is great, and Jesus is great, “for now his greatness shall reach to the ends of the earth” (Mi 5:3b).

WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO

Through all of our 29 years, we have spoken much of our vision and mission, who we are, what we are called to do. We know that we are an evangelistic and missionary community. This has been true from the very beginning and has never changed. We do our work within the context of family renewal. That is one distinct factor that distinguishes us from other renewal movements.

Books and Magazines

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. The Eucharist is the greatest gift God gives to His people. The Eucharist is our path to holiness and Christian perfection. The Eucharist is crucial to our work of the New Evangelization. We must have greater understanding and appreciation of the Eucharist, so that we can go forth and truly be effective witnesses to salvation in Jesus.

Servant leadership is crucial to our work of building up community and of doing a massive work of evangelization. Unfortunately, many who are leaders in our Church today may not have the heart of a servant. But Jesus, our Lord and Master, came not to be served but to serve. He is our main model.
