Call to Mission – Part Two

During the time of Jesus’ public ministry He went around proclaiming the gospel, healing the sick etc. He touched their minds and bodies and taught them about the kingdom of God. God, out of His love and mercy sent His son who was moved with pity at the misery of His people.

Jesus said to His disciples, the twelve who formed His core group

“The harvest is abundant, but the labourers are few.” (Mt 9:37).

Though the chosen ones were few and had to reach out to the masses God provided them with sufficient grace. God relies on us His instruments, but as Christians have we understood our responsibility, that we need to evangelize?
As Christians, we not only need to meet and know Christ but also to live and share Christ. We are called to place our faith in Him, to share the Gospel of salvation with our brethren and enable them to be set free from the shackles of the evil one.

We are on a mission to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth (Mt 9:35). More of us need to respond to the calling of the New Evangelization and we must also pray to God that He may send us more labourers.

About Frank Padilla

Founder of the Couples for Christ (CFC) community. Way back in 1981, CFC was started through the initiative of the Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon Community (LNP). In January 1981, LNP gathered 16 couples who went through a Life in the Spirit Seminar, with the intent of bringing them into LNP. But instead they were kept together for a few months after the program, until it was decided that a new group would be established to emphasize family life renewal. It would be an outreach of LNP. Frank and Gerry Padilla were among the 16 couples that became members in June of 1981 when CFC was born. Frank quickly emerged to be a top leader, and in 1985, he was already the Executive Director, running the day-to-day work of the whole community. In 1986 he went full-time for CFC and has been serving the community since, through two separate splits the community saw. Today he serves as the Servant General of CFC-FFL (Couples for Christ-Foundation for Family and Life). Know more about the founder at CFC-FFL
