CFC-FFL COMMUNITY PRAYER 2017

Heavenly Father, you are the Creator and we are all your children. Make us truly one. Protect us from the division in families, in communities, in the Church and in the world.

Lord Jesus Christ, you are the Savior who died for us and saved us. Now as your disciples, you send us forth to proclaim the good news of salvation in you throughout the world. May we be worthy witnesses. Show us the way to self-denial, embrace of the cross, and following you. Raise among us true servant leaders who have a passion for souls.

Holy Spirit, you are the agent of evangelization who sends us to engage in spiritual warfare. Equip us with the armor of God and weapons of righteousness. Help us to preserve unity in the Spirit through the bond of peace. May we stand together as your holy warriors.

Triune God, you are three Persons in one God. In you we have one baptism, one faith, one hope. We are one body. Help us to truly become united in mind and heart, in vision and mission, to be one with the Father through the Son and in the Spirit.

Mama Mary, you are our beloved Mother. We are your offspring who strive to keep God's commands, bear witness to Jesus, and wage war in the Spirit against the enemy. Cover us with your mantle of protection, keeping us in your loving embrace always.

Amen.

Serving the Poorest of the Poor

OUR THEME FOR 2017 (Part 6)

WORKS OF THE FLESH  

We as the people of God live by the Spirit and not by the flesh. “Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their flesh with its passions and desires.” (v.24). We are to avoid the works of the flesh. “Now the works of the flesh are obvious: immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, rivalry, jealousy, outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness, dissensions, factions, occasions of envy, drinking bouts, orgies, and the like.” (v.19-21a).



UN BUREAUCRAT TO IMPOSE LGBT  

December 12, 2016 (C-Fam) – With his job still on the line, the newly appointed UN independent expert for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights laid out a provocative agenda for his 3-year term a couple weeks ago. “This mandate will cover every country under the sun and under the moon,” Thai Professor Vitit Muntarbhorn is reported to have said, further antagonizing countries that have already promised not to cooperate with him.



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.
