CFC-FFL COMMUNITY PRAYER 2019

Almighty Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, may you be glorified as we and our households serve you.

Lord Jesus, you who are not ashamed to call us brothers, help us to do the will of our heavenly Father, so that we would be deserving to be your true family. Keep us secure along the paths of holiness and discipleship, and to be always obedient to you as our Master.

Holy Spirit, you who are the love that binds Father and Son together, empower us to know the love of Christ and be filled with all the fullness of God. Strengthen us as we endure the challenges of the authentic Christian life, and help us to be perfect through suffering.

Triune God, keep us, our households and our community steadfast in our resolve to serve you. Send us forth to be families on mission. Use us in order to witness to your love and to establish your dominion over the whole world.

Mama Mary, comfort us in our afflictions, cover us with your mantle of protection, and keep us in your loving embrace always.

Amen.



Bishop Tells Catholic Politicians Who Support Abortion to Repent and Become Pro-Life

INTERNATIONAL MICAIAH BILGER JAN 2, 2019 | 11:01AM DUBLIN, IRELAND

Pro-abortion politicians should repent for promoting the destruction of human life, Irish Catholic Bishop Kevin Doran said Tuesday. Ireland officially legalized abortion Jan. 1, a dark new era for the once strongly pro-life nation. New Year’s Day was a day of mourning for pro-life advocates, but also one of determination as they vowed to continue working to protect unborn babies.

Serving the Poorest of the Poor

SYNODOS (Part 90) BATTLE AT THE SYNOD - 8

October 23, 2014

 

Introduction

 

Please pray intently for our prelates meeting at the Synod of Bishops on October 4 to 25. The battle lines are drawn, with the liberals/progressives/modernists all set to sacrifice truth and traditional Catholic morality and teaching for the sake of a false mercy that condones sin. Pray that the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth, will preserve our Church, the one true Church, from serious error that can lead to schism.

Explosive video: Pope ‘will show whose side he’s on’ during Synod, says archbishop

ANALYSIS
September 10, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- The first hard-hitting words by orthodox cardinals and archbishops about the “current crisis” in the Catholic Church have been sounded. Previous comments by Vatican Cardinal Raymond Burke have been more guarded but as the Synod nears, the reality of a looming schism in the Church has pushed him and other Church leaders to a painful willingness to be frank in publicly warning about the seriousness of what is facing the Church.

Speaking to the idea proposed in the mid-term report of the 2014 Extraordinary Synod on the Family and repeated by various bishops’ conferences, he says, “It is heresy to teach that homosexual relations are not disordinate or are not disordered or have positive elements.”

The comments come in a newly released video by the Polish publication Polonia Christiana called Crisis in the Church. In addition to Cardinal Burke, the video features Archbishop Jan Pawel Lenga, who takes aim at Cardinal Reinhard Marx, president of the German bishops conference and one of Pope Francis’ Council of Nine advisors. Speaking of Marx’s acceptance of communion for remarried divorcees and his statement that the Church in Germany “is not a subsidiary of Rome,” Archbishop Lenga said, “There was Marx, Karl Marx. And if present Marx says similar things, then there is no real difference.”

Lenga, the emeritus archbishop of Karaganda, Kazakhstan, added that if the Church in Germany thinks they are so superior, “it’s some kind of Phantom, we should chase it away by the sign of the Cross.”

“The Pope during the Synod will show whose side he is on,” said Archbishop Lenga. “If he accepts the statement of those who want to distribute Holy Communion to the divorced, there would be a heresy in the Church, and if he does not accept, there could be a schism in the Church.”

Lenga concluded, “Either we are on the side of Christ, or on the side of the devil. There is no third option. The common people are sometimes closer to Christ than priests.”

Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan, who has been a spokesman for orthodoxy during the Synod crisis like few others in the hierarchy, says we are “already living in the time of schism” and points directly at Cardinal Walter Kasper as one of the main culprits. “These false words will be revealed,” he says. “Christ said all that is hidden will be revealed and these strategies of Cardinal Kasper and his group will be revealed as a lie, a strategy that is against the spirit of Christ and the apostles.

Cardinal Burke concurs that “we’re in a time of crisis within the church,” suggesting that “we may have to give our all (including our very lives) to safeguard and promote the truth of the faith not only for ourselves and our own generation but also for those to come.”

Burke is blunt about the current state of the Church confronting heretical positions coming from those high up in its leadership. “If this means that Cardinals will be opposed to Cardinals then we simply have to accept the fact that that's the situation in which we find ourselves,” he said. “Certainly for my part I don’t look for this kind of conflict but in defending the truth of the faith I end up in a disagreement or conflict with another conflict. What has to be primary to me is the truth of the faith.”

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.
