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.



Patrick Brown pressured MPPs to vote for radical pro-LGBTQ bill or stay away: Campaign Life

TORONTO, November 29, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) - Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Patrick Brown pressured his MPPs to either vote for the radical pro-LGBTQ Bill 28 or absent themselves, sources within the party have told Campaign Life Coalition. The controversial bill, which legally redefines the family - including substituting "mother" and "father" for parent - to accommodate homosexual activists, was passed unanimously at Queen's Park Tuesday by 79 MPPs from all parties.


"Our sources in the Progressive Conservative Party told us that Patrick Brown pressured his caucus to either vote for the bill or to stay away," Campaign Life vice president Jeff Gunnarson told LifeSiteNews.


"So much for the Conservative tradition of allowing free votes on issues of conscience," Gunnarson said.


"This just goes to show that the PC Party under Brown has no tolerance for different views and is not nearly as inclusive as he claims it is," he said.


"Plus, Brown has shown that he is a dictator in the style of Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who infamously banned pro-life candidates from running for the Liberal Party."


Twenty-eight MPPs were absent for the vote, including both Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne, and NDP leader Andrea Horwath.


In fact, Tory leader Brown was the only party leader present for the vote.


PC MPPs Monte McNaughton and Rick Nicholls, both green-lighted by CLC as supportable as pro-life and pro-family, were not present.


Liberal MPPs Mario Sergio and Joe Dickson, green-lighted as pro-life by Campaign Life Coalition, were also notably absent for the vote.


But voting for Bill 28 was Liberal MPP and Catholic Lou Rinaldi, who has been green-lighted as supportable by Campaign Life Coalition.


Newly elected PC MPP Sam Oosterhoff, known for his social conservative views, had not yet been sworn in after his surprise November 19 victory.


PC MPP Mike Harris had proposed an amendment November 1 that Bill 28 allow "mother" and "father" as well as "parent," in state-registered documents, but that amendment was voted down.


Harris was not present for the final vote.


Gunnarson slammed Premier Kathleen Wynne's Liberal government for "ramming through another controversial bit of social engineering with Bill 28."


"This bill is another example of Wynne's attempts to radically alter the definition of family and sexual morality," he said, noting that "Bill 28 will normalize a variety of relationships without any regard for the well-being of the children."


Other pro-family groups have criticized the Liberal government for pushing through the controversial "All Families Are Equal Act" with unseemly haste.


Bill 28 "completely turns on its head the former understanding of 'family' which consisted of individuals united by marriage, blood and adoption," echoed Gwen Landolt of REAL Women in an October 16 critique.


The All Families Are Equal Act legally redefines "mother" and "father" as "parent" to accommodate homosexuals who conceive children through reproductive means.


Parents As First Educators (PAFE) as well as CLC and REAL Women have been urging people to protest the legislation, which critics say will have far-reaching consequences.


"It gets rid of 'mother' and 'father' in family law - mum entirely - to allow for a purely contractual relationship between up to four adult parents, and the children that are legally identified as theirs," noted Dr. Scott Masson in an analysis of the bill.


He warned the bill is a threat to family and parental rights.


"According to this Bill 28, this new legal 'family' can only exist if the traditional, natural family unit is destroyed," Masson pointed out.


"In the process, it also makes it far easier for the government to seize our children because henceforth we too will only have a contractual - not a natural - bond to our children. As we know, contractual relationships are easy to change."

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.
