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.

LCSC is our lay response to the call to the New Evangelization. Through LCSC we will do rapid and massive evangelization, focusing on the lapsed or non-practicing Catholics (though not exclusively). LCSC has 4 pillars, all of critical importance. They are Live Pure (youth chastity), Live the Word (focus on Bible appreciation), Live Life (pro-life advocacy) and Live Full (our work of building the Church of the Poor through the No One In Need movement).



Serving the Poorest of the Poor

OUR THEME FOR 2017 (Part 3)

UNITY IN DIVERSITY  

We as Church are the body of Christ on earth. It is one body, but has diversity of gifts, calling and ministries. “As a body is one though it has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body, so also Christ.” (v.12). Christ cannot be divided, and so the body of Christ should be united as one. Unfortunately there are many divisions in the body of Christ.



OUR THEME FOR 2017 (Part 4)

UNITY OF VISION AND MISSION  

It is important for a community to have unity of vision and mission. If members know and live these out, then they will be united in the work, as they have a focal point for helping discern the way forward whenever differences in opinion arise. Our basic task is to proclaim the gospel, the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ. We are Couples for Christ. Our first Core Value is Centered on Christ. Our second Core Value is being Evangelistic and Missionary. And now, in being called to do even more, we have been given LCSC as our response to the call to the New Evangelization.



FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL OUR THEME FOR 2017 (Part 1)

ONE IN CHRIST 

My dear brethren, our theme for 2017 is “One in Christ.” Our theme verse is Romans 12:5, which says, “so we, though many, are one body in Christ and individually parts of one another.”

We are one people of God, one holy Catholic Church, one army of God. We look to our one Father, our one Lord, and the one Spirit. We have one call to holiness and discipleship, to which we continue to strive through the abounding mercy of God. “I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship.” (Rom 12:1).

FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL OUR THEME FOR 2017 (Part 2)

ONE BREAD, ONE BODY 

The greatest manifestation of unity in the body is when members of the body partake of the one body of Christ, and that is in the Eucharist. To be worthy to participate in the Eucharistic meal, we must be one in mind and heart, conformed to Christ.

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.
