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.

Serving the Poorest of the Poor

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.




Our Core Values

 

Our Core Values describe who we are and what we are called to do in the world. They provide parameters and constant guideposts in our moving on in our life and mission.

 

1. Centered on Christ.

In everything that we are and do, we look to Jesus, who is our Savior and Lord. Jesus is our model in our obedience to the Father, in our faithfulness to His call, and to total submission to His divine will. And as He who called us is holy, we ourselves will strive for holiness of life (1 Pt 1:15-16), and look to exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit in our day-to-day lives (Gal 5:22-23).

 

2. Evangelistic and missionary.

We are called to proclaim the good news of Jesus to the whole world (Mk 16:15). We are his witnesses (Lk 24:48). Every CFC-FFL member is an evangelizer, in the normal day-to-day environments of our lives. We look to doing mission beyond our own environments to the very ends of the earth.

 

3. Focused on the family.

Our life and mission is founded on strong families in Christ. We recognize that the future of humanity passes by way of the family. We defend and strengthen Christian marriage, we raise our children to be the next generation of God's people, we establish our homes as pieces of Kingdom ground. In our defense of the family, we are called to a strong advocacy and defense of the culture of life.

 

4. Being community.

We are part of the larger family of CFC-FFL, a global family of many different nationalities and cultures but all sharing brotherhood and sisterhood in Christ. We desire to move forward together in our life in the Lord, providing love, affirmation, friendship, support and healing. We are committed to the good of our brethren, always living the truth in love (Eph 4:15).

 

5. Living a preferential option for the poor.

We recognize Jesus' mission to bring glad tidings to the poor (Lk 4:18). We look to both the spiritual and material upliftment of the least among our brethren. In doing so, we will be in solidarity with the poor by striving to live a simple lifestyle, to share our resources, and to fight for social justice in the world.

 

6. Exercising servant leadership.

We are privileged to serve God and His people, both in and out of CFC-FFL. We serve with the mind and heart of Jesus, who came to serve and not to be served (Mt 20:28). Leaders are to serve with humility, self-sacrifice and submission to the Chief Shepherd, to whom we will render an account (Hb 13:17). He who wishes to be great shall be the least of all (Mt 20:26-27).

 

7. Being a servant to the Church.

We in CFC-FFL are an integral part of the Catholic Church. We are submitted to our bishops and to the pope. Our life, formation and service will conform to Catholic values and ideals. We make ourselves available to be of service in the parishes and dioceses, especially in the areas of family and life. We look to Mary, the mother of the Church, as our inspiration and help.
