Peter the Rock

The fight between Satan and God which began since creation continues today and will do so till our Lord comes again in glory at the end of the world. We see Satan using powerful nations of the world to change the minds of people against God, while on the other hand we have the Roman Catholic Church the only strong institution standing against the evil one.

Though Jesus crushed the head of the serpent, his tail is still causing divisions in the church and he is still waging war against Christ. But we need not lose hope as to the future of the Catholic Church.

Jesus said to Peter in Mathew 16:18, “You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church.”

As preparations are being made to elect the new pope who will succeed Pope Emeritus Benedict (the 265th pope) , let us be assured through the word of God that no matter however hard Satan may try to wage war against the catholic church , it can never be shaken since Jesus Christ is the true head of the church.

Jesus himself said, “Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Mt 16:19).

He delegated power and authority over his church to the Pope. As the new conclave of cardinals meets to elect the new Pope, let us pray that the Holy Spirit may empower them to choose the new Pope inspired by our Lord Jesus.

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
