Bishop encourages CFC: ‘You are signs of God’s hope and love’
Thursday, March 9, 2017

“With you around, an army like you, how can we ever doubt, how can we ever give up? You are in our midst, you are signs of God’s hope and God’s love.”


These were the encouraging words spoken by His Excellency the Most Reverend Jesse Mercado, Bishop of the Diocese of Parañaque, in his homily during the event Marriage is Beautiful: Families are Forever that was held on Sunday, February 24, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay.


Now on its second year, the event celebrates the sacrament of matrimony and the gift of family. It is also an occasion for fathers to consecrate their families to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.


The SMX Center was packed with families—young and old alike—all eager to listen to reassuring messages on how marriage is indeed beautiful and families are forever.


“You have lasted this long despite the ups and downs.  There must be something in it that keeps you moving and moving on in spite of everything,” the prelate mused.


He continued, “The beauty of marriage lies in the fact it is part of God’s plan. Marriage is beautiful when we see it as God’s way of inviting us to join him in the joy... It is God who called us to be together. Marriage is beautiful, families are forever, only if we first know who the center of our lives is, who the center of our relationship is, and who the center of our family is. It is none other than the Lord.” (A. Alvarez)
