FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL
 
OUR THEME FOR 2014
 

EMPOWERED TO WITNESS


 

September 5, 2013


How fast this Year of Faith has gone! Soon a new year will be upon us, and with that a new theme. We continue with the call to the New Evangelization, and especially the lay response needed. As such, we have decided on our theme for 2014. We are:
 

EMPOWERED TO WITNESS


 

Our theme is taken from 2 Timothy 1:7-8. “For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control. So do not be ashamed of your testimony to our Lord, nor of me, a prisoner for his sake; but bear your share of hardship for the gospel with the strength that comes from God.”
 

We are witnesses, that is, the silent witness of a holy life, and the verbal witness of gospel proclamation. In this we are empowered by the Holy Spirit, who sanctifies us and sends us off on mission.
 
The year 2014 will see an escalation of our work of evangelization. We see explosive growth for such initiatives as the Live Christ, Share Christ (LCSC) Movement, for the Live Pure Movement, for our work with the poor. These are all in line with the Church’s priorities: lapsed Catholics, the youth, the poor.

To respond to God’s call and plan, we must shed any spirit of cowardice. We must bravely march forth, responding to the calls to sainthood, martyrdom and spiritual warfare. This is the Christian life. This is the great privilege given to us as CFC-FFL.

Onward to the New Evangelization!

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.
