THE WAY FORWARD IN CHRIST
(Part 62)

OUR CALL AND MISSION - 2

October 26, 2013
At the Vatican


It is the Pilgrimage of Families at St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican. The square is packed and overflowing. Our CFC-FFL contingent is composed of 320 brethren from all over Italy, other nations of Europe, as well as the USA, Canada and the Philippines.

When Pope Francis emerged from St. Peter’s Basilica, he was accompanied by about a dozen children. The song sung was “When You Believe” from the movie Prince of Egypt. Then thousands of balloons of different colors were released into the air. What an awesome sight!

What was also awesome was the confirmation of our life and mission.

The children with the Pope were all about our work of family renewal. We bring in our children and our children’s children. Thus our work continues through the generations until the end of time, until the Lord returns once again.

The balloons of various colors released into the sky represented all the nations, races, cultures and tongues, all traveling in the world, but making (hopefully) their way to heaven. How do they make it to heaven? Through the work of evangelization. When they accept Jesus as Savior and Lord. We participate in this work, bringing people back to God and back to the Church. CFC-FFL is an evangelistic and missionary community.

The song sung has these words, “there can be miracles, if you believe.” That is our theme for this year! BE.LI.EV.E! Faith Works Wonders! The one who believes in Jesus will do the works that he does, and even greater ones than those. We do divine work, according to the plan of the Father, as directed by Jesus, empowered by the Holy Spirit. It can only be awesome.

There were other important aspects that relate to our life and work.

St. Peter’s Square and St. Peter’s Basilica are full of statues of saints. In our earthly walk we are in the company of saints, who have gone before. But we too are called to holiness, to become part of their company.

The main personage of course is the Holy Father. He is Peter, presiding at this seat of our holy Roman Catholic faith. We are here to report to and to be sent off by Peter. We as CFC-FFL are a servant to the Church.

At the end of the celebration were the song and prayer to our Blessed Mother. We as CFC-FFL are consecrated to Mary. We march into battle under her banner.

So there you are. Focused on Christ. Evangelization and family renewal. Consecrated to Mary. Marching with the saints. Acting with wonder-working faith. We as CFC-FFL are well equipped for the work that is at hand. Let us truly rejoice in the privilege and strive to give our all.
