General Assembly Prayer
Heavenly Father, Creator of the universe we exalt you, Lord Jesus our savior, we honour you, Holy Spirit our comforter and advocate we glorify you.
Lord, as you prayed in John 17, "I pray for them. I do not pray for the world, but for those whom you have given to me, so that they may be one, even as we are one." Help us oh Lord in the FCCCPC family to "preserve the unity of the Spirit within the bond of love and peace. One body and one Spirit."
Lord, help us to follow your commandment to love one another for "By this, all shall recognize that we are your disciples: because we love one another." Mother Mary, intercede for us, that our FCCCPC Grand Assembly on September 9, 2017 will be a witness to the world that communities can live in harmony and collaboration under the banner of love. All these we ask you Father in the name of your Beloved Son our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever Amen. Our Father.......,Hail Mary.......,Glory be..
The Alliance of Filipino Catholic Charismatic Prayer Communities (AFCCPC) held their 19th National Convention at the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club, Palm Harbor, Florida. It was hosted by the Filipino Catholic Prayer Groups of Tampa Bay, Florida and sponsored by the Couples for Christ on October 28-30, 2016. It was truly life changing for all who were present and gave the audience a delightful experience that stirred over 800 faithfuls. The theme of this event was "Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful (Luke 6:36)".
The Speakers were Archbishop Bernardito Auza, Archbishop Jose Palma, Bishop Emeritus Sam Jacobs, Fr. Greg Gaston, Bro. Don Quilao, Bro. Bob Canton, and Bro. Eric Villanueva.
Highlights in the National Convention
Jesus loved to tell the story through a Parables so with His excellency Bishop Emeritus Sam Jacobs. He was ordained to the priesthood for the Diocese of Lafayette in 1964 where he was used as pastor, chaplain, and associate pastor of several parishes there and also in the Diocese of Lake Charles. He has acted as chairman of the National Service Committee for the Charismatic Renewal and diocesan director of Vocations and Seminarians for the Diocese of Lake Charles. Bishop Jacobs was installed as the third bishop of Houma-Thibodaux in 2003. He retired in October of 2013 and is now the bishop emeritus of Houma-Thibodaux. He celebrated 52 years of priesthood on June 6, 2016, and marked 29 years of episcopacy on August 24, 2016.
Conclusion of Jubilee of Mercy
He thoroughly explored God's Mercy, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us. He evangelizes everybody - ALL Sinners and Saints. His presentations gave me a hunger for the Word of God, a hunger that transformed me as He helped me to understand what I was hearing and watching. He brought me into the previous experience, when my wife and the members of the Living for Christ Prayer Community interceded before the Holy Eucharist for my conversion into the world of Catholic Charismatics.
God answered our prayers. I actually asked myself who am I, I'm selfish, always make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to manage. But, the Holy Spirit had certainly transformed me! We've both been serving since but only because the Holy Spirit transformed us and continues to empower us to work in HIS vineyard..
The powerful talk ignited my relationship with the Holy Spirit that broke into my life. As he revealed Jesus to me; at the end of the talk, I was convinced and asked Jesus to be my Saviour and Lord and to live in me.
Homily - Reflection on reading of scripture.
Zacchaeus said to Jesus "I'll pay back four times as much!." How about us?
It's give back time.....by the Most Rev. Jose Palma, D.D. He was appointed Archbishop of Cebu by Pope Benedict XVI on 15 October 2010.)
The FCCCPC Team Canada scrambled Thursday (October 27, 2016) how to go to Florida. We have experienced some type of memorable road trip and spent almost 27 hours. We acknowledged that God has blessed us with a rich stamina and with our Triune God is on our side. We had reached the hi-way to the Lord of Mercy. It was a super special moment to hang with a very meek and humble Archbishop Jose Palma where His Excellency renewed our 45 year of Holy Matrimony. To sum up, It's PRICELESS!!!
Congratulations to the AFCCPC. May you continue to pursue diversity as you serve the Lord.

A Prayer of Charismatic Renewal by Fr. Ben St. Croix, cc
An uplifting morning prayer is a wonderful way to focus your time and attention on seeking God's plan for the day ahead. This is reinforced by our Featured Bible TODAY'S Word Of God (audio gallery) for listening Living the Psalms - God's Stress Remover
Our Call to Prayer for Vocations
Priests have extraordinary responsibilities before God. They are in charge of the souls of those they guide and are held accountable for the souls of those they guide.
We pray for priests from whom we have received Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, without the priesthood there canbe not the Eucharist. Without the Eucharist there would be no sacrifice of the Mass, no Holy Communion, no Real Presence of Jesus Christ on earth, where He continues God's Plan of Salvation... the way to possess eternal life.
