CFC must ‘Live the Truth in Love’

CFC leaders from the different sectors of Metro Manila gathered to listen and engage in a workshop on Amoris Laetitia on June 9, 2018 at the Christ the King Mission Seminary in Quezon City.


CFC Pastoral Formation Office Director Rouquel Ponte shared how CFC should respond to Pope Francis’s Amoris Laetitia on Pastoral Accompaniment by defining the approaches to accompanying, discerning and integrating.


Ponte began, “With the current challenges that Christians are facing today, it is important to really know how we would be able to walk in one path in following Christ.”


Ponte added that CFC is now looking at the following sectors greatly affected by the surrounding threats to family life and relationships: couples in regular unions, the young people in their search for identity and sexuality, those who are suffering, people in special cases like broken marriages, single-parent families, separated persons, victims of abortion, mothers, and others in need of special accompaniment.


“It might be complicated to understand and hard to grasp that these are the realities that we are facing right now, but we must put our words into actions,” Ponte added.


How? First, CFC must be present in the life of the person through a support group (in CFC, it is termed as ‘households’). The household is a safe place where everyone is welcome.


Another way can be through full participation by being present in their journey via mentoring under the guidance of the Church hierarchy. A third intervention can be through the sacraments as pathways of holiness.


Part of the workshop was the group discussion where participants were able to articulate specific actions that they can do to fulfill what Amoris Laetitia teaches. (Yvonne Grace Dolorosa)
