An Ode to the Missionary

Abandon be the theme of thee
To the Lord above eternally
Thine heart restored suffereth still
For the love of One in Three to fill

Radiant be thine light shineth forth
Be mindful of thy true worth
Enthroned the Cross forever be
In the hearts and minds of those who see

Rejoice! Be glad, pain won’t last!
Salvation comes but not as fast
Virtue be instilled within
Cast far away from thee ye sin

Lives touched and changed for good
Treasures indeed but never could
Thout God in His goodness and splendour share
Our all, our all, ‘tis not but fair

Beauty and courage abounds in thee
Strength and valour if not be free
The Maker provides for all who wait
The line is crooked be though it straight

Affirm my heart though weak and frail
Strength will come through be’t slow as snail
Hope comes to those whose flames are lit
Abound in grace that ye be fit

Bitter though the fighting be
How sweet it is for victory
Assured that battle has been won
By God’s one and only Son

To Mary be oh hail we sing
A prayer for us we humbly ring
Until such time that God calls forth
Entrust to you our souls’ worth

To this I say with all my might
With this I stand and truly fight
Unwavering though my faith may be
In You I trust until I see

Oh love my soul, oh love until
The world doth end and comes to still
And when thy Saviour faces thee
Behold the glory for you to be

A Prince in God’s Kingdom

I think everyone will agree with me that all the events that transpired within WSC is truly memorable. From the beginning of the first day up until the closing day, everything will be etched in our memories forever, but there is one event that will truly stand out. For me that memorable piece of experience was the praise fest we had after the exposition of the Holy Sacrament. Why is it that this was my most memorable experience? It is because I truly felt that our Savior, Jesus Christ, was present as we sang our songs of praises that night. It may be because of the fact that the blessed sacrament was present during that night. I envisioned Jesus Christ, sitting at His throne, as we worshiped Him with our songs. In my mind I said that, “Lord, you truly are a rock star!” and the Lord looking at me and giving me a thumbs up! He was smiling. He was glad. He was happy at what He was witnessing, together with His mother at His side. Also, in this congress, I got to know who I truly am. Another memorable experience to me, because despite of all my unworthiness, my sins, the mistakes I have committed in the past and despite of my low self-esteem, God reaffirmed me of who I am. His special and unique creation. I am capable of many great things because He created me in His own image. I will always hold a very special place in God’s heart, a prince that is an heir to His kingdom.

Also, I would like to add that I really had much anticipation for this year’s WSC,I really had one question in my heart that I really wanted the Lord to answer. It was kind of affecting every aspect of my life and I was looking forward to the congress to have it answered. And, as expected our Lord God didn’t let me down. On the eve of the congress I had a talk with my mother and through her, God answered my question, I just realized that my conversation with my mother the evening prior was His answer to me when I was at the congress. I believe that it was His answer to me because I felt peace with what my mother said.

All the events on this year’s WSC was God’s reaffirmation of His Almighty strength. That as we face the toughest challenges in our lives His strength will pull us out of there, that He will always be our sure foundation. And for that may God be praised.

Bringing the Cause of Christ

jesus-christ-divineGods desire is for the salvation of all, John 3:16 ” for God so love that world that He gave His only begotten Son”. His great desire is for us to experience life in abundance, life to the full, Jeremiah 29 “for I know well the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans for your welfare not for woe, plans to give you a future full of hope”.

But it doesn’t end there. As we experience that abundance, our duty is to speak and share about it. We are blessed to have a life that we have, but reality shows that not all are experiencing what they are supposed to be experiencing, a lot are deprived of what is due of them in accordance to Gods plan.

We are commissioned by God to share, to speak, and to witness. We are evangelizers, and are cause is to let other people see and experience that great plan of God, prepared for us and made for us.

Gods Cause is should be shared to all. CFC SFL is DESTINED to live out that CAUSE!

MV 72

MV 72Luke 10:1 “ After this, the Lord has appointed the 72, and sent them by two ahead of Him in every places He go”

Yesterday we had the very first gathering of MV72. I remember, 4 years ago the Lord has shared to us a promise of a huge harvest and abundance, the Lord made us grow by bringing the ministry to one stage of victory, to stages of learning and different levels of growth. Through the years, the Lord has showed us the way in bringing His name, and carrying His cause. We have seen more and more people growing in their conviction, we have seen more singles who are living a life of holiness and purity, we have seen people desiring and seeking their state of life and vocation. While the struggles is still present, and challenges is real, but you cannot outdone God in the work that He is doing and have done in the ministry of singles, its leaders and members.

With the great work of evangelization ahead, and the potential of starting SFL in areas and workplace, we started to bring out the challenge, to raise 72 mission volunteers in the Philippines that can be part of the mission of spreading His word to every corner of this land. We prayed, discerned, and accepted the challenge, and yesterday is a big affirmation of that cause. 55 SFL leaders/members came, still short of the 72, but the spirit of 72 is heavily felt, the spirit of going out on mission is overwhelming, the desire to go out, and proclaim is at the heart of every SFL who accepted the challenge and responded to the call.

A huge harvest is awaiting us, and what great joy to know, that we have brothers and sisters who are dedicated, committed and willing to bring themselves to the greatest spiritual adventure of their life, to be His missionaries, to be part of SFL MV72.
