Our Family Ministriess


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.

CONSECRATION TO OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY

O Blessed Virgin Mary, you with your Son Jesus crushed the head of the serpent. In the spiritual war that continues to rage in the heavens and on earth, you have already won the victory. Your holy warriors stand before you, dear Mother Mary. We consecrate ourselves to the cause of your Son Jesus, the Redeemer of the world, and to you as his Co-Redemptrix. We dedicate ourselves to the task of winning souls for the Kingdom. We commit to do battle against all evil forces. Cover us with your mantle of protection as you send us forth under your banner. Amen.

Serving the Poorest of the Poor

THE MOVEMENT FOR RESTORATION

 

"Lead us back to you, O Lord, that we may be restored" (Lam 5:21a)

 

We are at the crossroads in our life and mission as CFC. There is intense conflict and disunity, even among the top leadership. CFC has been put in disfavor with our bishops as a result of the lack of submission of top elders. The place of GK as a pillar of CFC is being eroded and we are sliding to the social apart from the spiritual.

Have we lost our way?

We indeed have been guilty of infidelities to our covenant, even as God continued to use us in the power of His Spirit in our first 25 years. But in His love for us, God brought us to Lamentations this year, as His way of opening our minds to the dangers of continuing to slip away from our call. Now there is conflict and disunity. But even this is part of God's plan to purify us.

How do we find the right way?

"Lead us back to you, O Lord, that we may be restored: give us anew such days as we had of old." (Lam 5:21). The key to restoration is to go back to our original charism. Going back is the way to go forward.

In 1993, we had 3 key words to describe ourselves and our mission: Global, Wholistic, Catholic.

  • CFC is an evangelistic and missionary community, serving the universal Church.
  • CFC is a family life renewal movement, with womb-to-tomb support environments.
  • CFC is an integral part of the life and mission of the Roman Catholic Church.

We are Families in the Holy Spirit renewing the face of the earth.

 

We will still do work with the poor, which is part of the mission of Jesus, but our work with the poor will not be our primary focus. The work for justice and for life will be given equal importance. And none of these services should be allowed to negatively impact on our basic mission of evangelization and family life renewal.

Lamentations is a time of purification, leading to greater empowerment for the work ahead. Lamentations is about restoration. It is about fully living out our covenant, and living out our call according to our original charism.

We all need to take responsibility for the life and mission of CFC. Together, in this movement for restoration, let us all discern and follow where God moves us.
