On "The Heart Of The Matter" post...

I'm just having some technical difficulties with the video as it was playing choppy on the page. I'm working on it but I will be posting another video in the meantime. Thanks for your patience.


Here's another part of the same meeting, this time with Joe Yamamoto and Melo Villaroman Jr.

To CFC IC (based on the video presentation),

Reality tells us that CFC is now DIVIDED so there is NO NEED to be SILENCED by FEAR of Division.

You know very well your Antagonist Brother (Samson, the strong man) after all those years. FAP would not waiver once he set his mind, specially with the wife's shadows on his back. That Couple will not stop until they're back again on top.

That's the Battle you need to WIN up there and not a priority of most people below.

Us DOWN here have our battles too, and many of us still needs guidance. Our world need NOT to STOP as you do your battle. But apparently the CFC's ARK is now at a stand still being tossed by the big waves.

Before we damage further your cargos (couples who decided to stay) NOAH (Captain Tale) has to order "START ALL ENGINES, FULL SPEED FORWARD" that would echo around the globe and all four (4) corners of every continent.

Lets MOVE ON so we can start the HEALING specially those hit by the sharp nails and can now divert their Righteous ANGER for Gods Work.

If there were orders already, kinddly POST it here so we can REMIND our Household Heads (back to work guys).

When our leaders- 7 men council are called indecisive and not firm in their actions, let me lead you to
2 Timothy 2: 20-26-
In a large household there are vessels not only of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for lofty and others for humble use.
If anyone cleanses himself of these things, he will be a vessel for lofty use, dedicated, beneficial to the master of the house, ready for every good work.
So turn from youthful desires and pursue righteousness, faith,love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord with purity of heart.
Avoid foolish and ignorant debates, for you know that they breed quarrels.
A slave of the Lord should not quarrel, but should be gentle with everyone, able to teach, tolerant,
correcting opponents with kindness. It may be that God will grant them repentance that leads to knowledge of the truth,
and that they may return to their senses out of the devil's snare, where they are entrapped by him, for his will.

The majesty and glory of HIS name shall show forth, because the Council are GODs chosen disciples!

Marivie, guys,

Don't get me wrong. IC may have decided already but the marching ORDERS has not reached the foot soldiers yet.

And those (Foot Soldiers) are the PEOPLE we are SERVING (NOT OUR Leader's Politics).

If our Life Boat (Households) is in working condition, we can help to save SOULs. Not by quarelling or dis-agreeing. But by the JOY, LOVE and CARING people can see in our FACES after every meetings.

Nobody can take that away from US, the Fruits given by the SPIRIT, which we can use to BUILD UP the CHURCH.

If NOT we all get stucked in this Blog Analysing and Paralysing one another (good for CD).

Let me speak in my local tongue.



Prayers can NOT cure a wound if the wound was not cleaned and the bandage replaced. Ask a nurse where bed sores comes from and what happened if not properly cleaned and cared (MABAHO at MANANA).

My wife is a NURSE and she tells me those patient stories.

To Marivie Dalman,

I honor your courage and wisdom. I actually learned of Bro. Frank's fulfillment of his own prophesies from you when you quoted his article in the Sept.-Oct. 2006 issue of Ugnayan.

God bless!

To Anonymous (Marivie,)

I support the IC and their concerns at hand. But I'm doubly concerned with the grass roots members out there who needs guidance. Those are the people we SERVE in CFC and not the IC.

I guess there is something CULTURAL that needs to be addressed here, FOR EXAMPLE;

1. Ang galing talaga ni Bo Sanchez, very efficient and effective mag talk. Tinanong ko si Bo and he said "Don't look at me, Im just the messenger, look at the message".

Most of the times we get fixated on the personality or the leader.

Leaders are there to provide ORDER, in the organization.

Ask me WHY?

So we can DELIVER the GOOD NEWs to the FAMILIES entrusted to us in CFC so we can RENEW the FACE of the EARTH.

OUR LEADERS are busy already with governance, it's not a joke to be a council memeber (look at them pumuti na ang mga buhok) and ang pahinga lang nila sometimes Photo ofs or interviews.

Its those Foot Soldiers (the household members) we are SERVING, so we can equipt them in the evangelization works ahead of us or to replace us as HH Heads (so on and so forth).

2. We call PARENTS in our native tongue "MAGULANG"

As me WHY?


We can never be equal to them.

I learned something here in America the reason behind Equality . To a certain age we have to let go of our children to become our Brother/Sister(s) and we become EQUAL to THEM. If not we Grandfather God and THEY can NOT be ADOPTED by God and become His children. For these reason we ALL call God "ABBA" Our Father.

We are all EQUAL (brothers and sisters in Christ)in the face of God even with OUR own children.
If we don't let go, our children's prayer shall be - Our Grand Father, who is in Heaven etc etc.

Leaders like parents develops Mes·si·an·ic Identity (The Anointed One, MAGULANG Eh).
They can NOT LET GO and would always have the last words.

3. I was thought in the Eucharistic Ministers Training many moons ago that the Marriage Vocation is in the same league as the Holy Order (the Vocation of priest and nuns).

Recently as I learned from Fr Mario S, that the PRIESTHOOD is there to SERVE the FAMILY into it's FULL POTENTIAL which is

* The family is the fundamental cell of social life. The natural society in which husband and wife are called to give themselves in love and in the gift of life. Authority, stability and a life of relationship within the family constitute the foundations for freedom, security, and fraternity within society.

* The family, we call the "Domestic Church" is the unit in which from childhood, one can learn moral values, begin to honor GOD, and make good use of freedom.
CCC 2204 & 2207

So CFC (HH Heads) like PRIESTs and PARENTs, SHOULD BE FOCUSED MORE TO THE FAMILIES GOD ENTRUSTED UNDER YOUR CARE. So we can all be EQUAL, Brothers and Sisters in Christ , with God as the FATHER.

if we still believe that there is only one CFC, i urge you now brothers, sisters, singles and youth to stand stand side by side (not behind)with our leaders. if we are to move on, let them know that we are there for them as we have been for community. let them feel our support. let them see our presence. let us make it known that we are all in this TOGETHER!!

looks like there is no GK expo at this time. kse kung meron we would have known by now.

anyway, happy birthday bro. frank on Oct. 4... i read somewhere it is your birthday - coinciding every year with the GK expo. God bless you, CFC and FFL always !!!

EB-3C said...

The revelations of Sis Gigi and Bro. Joe point to a woman or women as the root of these things. If we go back to the Bible, it was also a woman who destroyed Eden, her thirst for the fruit (in our case i believe it is fame and prestige)caused the downfall of Adam and the paradise.

I hope you see the analogy.

Thanks and God bless

salamat anonymous. mabuti naman kung meron. i stand corrected. naiba lang pala ng date. kitakits tayong mga Bloggers dito... paano kaya tayo magkakila-kilala... any suggestions what to wear?

si EB-3C na-meet ko na minsan sa isang MC Teaching Night... hehehe

hehehehe.. salamat po, JoPen-SA

Bingo said...

I heard Luis O. and watched the GK1World powerpoint presentation at the close of the Pastoral Congress. Maybe I was just a little bit inattentive but I do not recall seeing nor hearing anything about CFC during the entire presentation. This was one of the issues raised in the GK3 paper and before the bishops - GK and CFC veering away from the vision and mission. The IC and GK leadership should do something about this lest we might add credence to the FFL accusation of veering away.....

"Women are Fabulous". Do you remember this book. Now I know why he wrote it.

magisch50@hotmail.com said...

if not joeyam , can anyone please tell me where the "PROPER PLACES OF WOMEN in CFC or in general is?"

from a WOMAN!

Ernie said...

To: From a WOMAN;

You asked where the "PROPER PLACES OF WOMEN in CFC or in general is?"

From the Cathecism of the Catholic Church


2360 Sexuality is ordered to the conjugal love of man and woman. In marriage the physical intimacy of the spouses becomes a sign and pledge of spiritual communion. Marriage bonds between baptized persons are sanctified by the sacrament.

2361 "Sexuality, by means of which man and woman give themselves to one another through the acts which are proper and exclusive to spouses, is not something simply biological, but concerns the innermost being of the human person as such. It is realized in a truly human way only if it is an integral part of the love by which a man and woman commit themselves totally to one another until death."[142]
Tobias got out of bed and said to Sarah, "Sister, get up, and let us pray and implore our Lord that he grant us mercy and safety." So she got up, and they began to pray and implore that they might be kept safe. Tobias began by saying, "Blessed are you, O God of our fathers.... You made Adam, and for him you made his wife Eve as a helper and support. From the two of them the race of mankind has sprung. You said, 'It is not good that the man should be alone; let us make a helper for him like himself.' I now am taking this kinswoman of mine, not because of lust, but with sincerity. Grant that she and I may find mercy and that we may grow old together." And they both said, "Amen, Amen." Then they went to sleep for the night.[143]

Ultimately it's your CHOICE. If you want to have the GREATEST HUSBAND it's in the power of your hands. He NEEDS a HELPER to achieve that.

We MEN are "poor" JESUS but we can be a great HUSBAND with the help of our SPOUSE.

PS, Here's the link to the text

I saw sister Gigi Maipid's sharing...

She said a lot, but most of all, I was moved what she said about her husband.

She shared that she will put her trust in her husband and will give her undying support to him.

I encouraged my wife to watch that video, but it is not available for the time being. I thank GOd for blessnig me with christian family. My mother always told me that her place is with her husband(my dad). There are times my father will be in a different perspective(things i dont agree with)and still my mother supported him. I hope in small way explain, thru Gigi's sharing, the blessing of a wife's undying honor, support, and love for her husband.

- i do not support man's view of blaming women for the exile from Eden-

- i (man)am (are) also accountable.

Lord forgive me for my disobience(eating the fruit), forgive me for puting the blame on someone(blaming woman, instead of being accountable) and most of all mold me to be a better husband to my wife (Priority list, God first. Next, my relationship with my spouse)

I, as a CFC wife, support my brother husband to fulfill his service to the community. I cannot do or announce any CFC activities without him knowing first or without his approval no matter how good my intentions are. If he disapproved after trying to defend my reason, I'll just pray and think... maybe it's not God's time yet for such action.

By giving our brother husband a chance to enjoy his headship, he become more responsible in doing his duties.

That's just for me, there's a lot of ways out there..

Based on Sis Gigi's video, I saw a lot of love and respect for brother Frank coming from IC. Even bro Tony M. is vocal about his love of bro Frank.

Hope the receiver is also a giver.

So Gigi Maipid is the one knows the truth, the truth that somebody told her that that somebody was asked by somebody about Gerry Padilla.

I respect her and pray that she’ll be comforted. But like many of us, she does not know what really happened and she admitted that. And from the sharing, she’s telling that others questioning what really happned just trust and follow, don’t ask.

That’s the truth.

To ernie:

You said,
"Ultimately it's your CHOICE. If you want to have the GREATEST HUSBAND it's in the power of your hands. He NEEDS a HELPER to achieve that."

Women as kingmakers, at the same time be blamed when the king turns into a pauper? Why can men not be held responsible for their own actions- good or bad, without the helper? We were both given by God the intellect to choose what is right or wrong.

God bless!
