My Dearest Co-Workers
I would like to share with you this inspired campaign 3-6-9 (Divine Mercy, Angelus, Rosary) being launched in Southern California through the efforts and inspiration of our SFC brethren. The Spirit is moving powerfully and a deep call to prayer is being sounded, 3-6-9(Divine Mercy, Angelus, Rosary) is a good place for all to start.
I strongly urge you to please consider adopting this campaign in your respective areas.
Please keep our upcoming November elections in your prayers; we have very serious Family and Life initiatives that are on the ballots.
May Our Lady of Guadalupe continue to pray for us and with us as we continue to journey to her Son.
Love and Prayers,
Live Simply, Love Generously, Care Deeply, Speak Kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Theology Class Public Lecture
Ateneo de Manila University
July 1, 2008
There is a time to speak and a time to be silent. Tonight is the first time that I will speak publicly about the upheaval that rocked Couples for Christ.
For over a year, I chose to keep quiet out of respect for long cherished friendships and refrained from adding fuel to the fire while emotions were high. What was an internal leadership transition within an organization I felt should not have been made into a public issue and prudence should have been taken not to drag the Catholic Church into the conflict. I must admit that it was tempting at times for me to speak out and defend myself but I listened to the voice within my heart that kept telling me “keep still, I will defend those who defend the poor.”
A MESSAGE OF THANKS
To the CFC Global Family:
We praise and thank the Lord for our very successful 27th anniversary celebration last Saturday, June 21 at the Luneta. We did not realize, until later in the day, that Signal No. 2 had been raised over Metro Manila and that we were holding our festivities under the threat and along the path of a powerful storm.
We began our Harvest Parade in clear weather and the rains did not come until an hour and a half later. By then the parade was well on its way. The last groups in the parade walked, waved their pennants and yes, danced joyfully, under the rain. None of the parade participants left; and neither did anyone in the crowd. The sea of umbrellas went up, lending more color to an already colorful gathering. CFC made a powerful statement by standing its ground despite the drenching rain.
