39 Years of Ligaya
Thursday, August 28, 2014
Couples for Christ, represented by Chairman Joe Tale and his wife Babylou and some CFC leaders, attended the thanksgiving Mass and lunch hosted by the Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon (LNP) Community on the occasion of their 39th Anniversary last July 25, 2014 at the LNP Center in Taguig City. Also present were the leaders of Ligaya’s Partners in Mission—the BCBP, Familia, the Institute for Pastoral Development, and Women for Christ, to name a few. Dr. Arcado Tamayo, the head of the Federation of Transparochial Charismatic Communities, with his group graced the occasion as well.

The lunch was a time of fellowship and sharing with one another. For some of the CFC leaders who attended, this was the first time they were meeting the other leaders of outreach and affiliate organizations. Jun Cruz of LNP was the lively emcee of the affair and ensured that members from the various communities had the opportunity to get to know one other and the community they represented over lunch.

Among the LNP stalwarts present were Fr. Herb Schneider, who celebrated the Mass, Vic Gutierrez, who also served as CFC’s executive director at one point, and Spanky Meer, the Head Coordinator of LNP.

In his welcome address, Spanky Meer mentioned the various groups are connected in pursuing a common cause and mission, with the ultimate goal of glorifying the Lord. It was a special time of togetherness for each one, especially when the stories of victories were shared around the different tables about the workings of the Lord in the various communities. The Holy Spirit truly moved around and made everyone feel united in Christ. Joe Tale shared his reflections on the Word of the Lord, “Come and see,” encouraging all to see what the Lord has in store for everyone through these “connections”. He continued, “The Lord is asking all of us to just take one step forward and see, and as we come together we will begin to see much more.”

Cruz also invited everybody to LNP’s upcoming activity, “The Harvest”, on September 6 and 7 where CFC was tasked to present the work of Global Evangelization. Also announced was the coming “Catchfire Rally” on Christ the King Sunday, November 23, 2014 at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City. Incidentally, this year’s rally is headed by CFC, together with Ligaya ng Panginoon.

Couples for Christ’s history can never be written without the workings of the Lord through LNP. Thus, the CFC Community continues to praise and thank the Lord for the blessing of Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon. (Michael Ariola)
