The CFC Beloved Weekend Day 1: `We are God’s beloved. Mother Mary has been singing to us of God’s love`
Thursday, February 13, 2014
The threat of a single-digit temperature did not stop the over 2,000-strong members of the CFC Mission Core from going up to Baguio City for the 2014 The Beloved Weekend. In fact, delegates from the Metro Manila, Philippine, and International Missions were on fire as soon as they entered the CAP Convention Center in Camp John Hay.

As early as 2:30 PM, CFC leaders were lining up to register on the firstday of the Beloved Weekend.

After the recitation of the Holy Rosary, Rev. Fr. Anton Pras, CICM of Indonesia celebrated the Mass, together with Fr. Carolus Patampang (Indonesia), Fr. Pierre Friquin (Mauritius) and Fr. Jacques Piat (Mauritius).

In his homily, Fr. Anton called everyone’s attention to Mary’s special attitude of constant pondering on God’s will for her and plan. He shared,“By saying, ‘I give up!’, we deny the generosity of God who is the source and giver of our talents, capabilities and skills in our lives. As CFC leaders, we have to participate and play our various roles to strengthen our community. “

He extracted two simple lessons from the gospel: 
  1. When everybody shares in the task-everything is possible. 
  2. Never give-up when challenged because by giving up, man   denies God the chance to do something in his life.   

To open the weekend retreat, Noli Medalla of Metro Manila Central B led the community in a rousing worship and exhorted  everyone to be of service to brothers and sisters in need, to country, and to God. 

CFC Executive Director George Campos welcomed the delegates, exhorting all, “Let us journey with Mary individually and collectively. We are God’s beloved. Mother Mary has been singing to us of God’s love.”

After the worship and welcome remarks, the Metro Manlla Sectors performed original compositions of songs honoring Mother Mary. Joe Aqullina, CFC Malta Country Head, likewise rendered his own composition, with the active participation of the au­ dience. The husband and wife tandem of Kirby and Michelle Llaban kept the program flowing. The performance by the Metro Manila Sector Heads also brought the house down. (CFC Docu Team)
