CBCP President reminds faithful to be overwhelmed by God

Bishop Nereo Odchimar reminded faithful Catholics on Sunday to be overwhelmed by God’s goodness and love.

Speaking to a crowd of more than 7,000 people at Couples for Christ Foundation for Family and Life’s (CFC FFL) 30th anniversary, he reminded everyone to fight against the forces that seek to destroy the family and life in general – such as the divorce and reproductive health bills.

And he went on to remark that God overwhelms us everyday with His goodness and love, even in the little things. We just need to open our eyes and hearts to recognize them.

He celebrated the anniversary mass of CFC FFL in Ynares Auditorium in Antipolo City together with Bishop Gabriel Reyes of Antipolo, Bishop Valentine of Gaborone, Botswana, Fr. Peter West the associate director of Priests for Life in the USA, Fr. Francis Gustilo of the Vatican’s International Theological Commission and more priests from around the Philippines and the world.

CFC FFL is a lay Catholic community that strives to renew the family and defend life, led by it’s Founder and Servant General Frank Padilla, who, along with his wife Gerry, is part of the Pontifical Council for the Family.
