KateSFC Manila: One Heart in CHRIST
Posted by Kate Deiparine on 7/27/2010 4:23:42 AM

Last July 23-25,2010 around 2,300 Singles for Christ from all over Metro Manila gathered, worshiped and offered their hearts to God in the ONE HEART Metro Manila Conference.
The conference started with the Holy Eucharist on Friday afternoon celebrated by Fr Alvin Fulgencio. As the delegates started to arrive the place, the Song writing Competition was also held on stage where each composer interpreted their songs. In that conference, it was the first ever for all delegates to bring their own spoon and fork and tumblers to lessen the plastic waste during meals for the SFC Advocacy of One Earth. Water without Waste happened since it was also the first time not to have disposable water bottles in all meals. The session started with the worship lead by Nikki Tuazon from South B. An opening dance opened the session with the song “You are Mine” by David Haas interpreted by the SFC dance ministry. Session 1 talks entitled “A Heart made for God” given by Lawrence Quintero. It talks about our heart as the core of our being and that our heart will rest until it rest in the Lord. It also talks about Gods extravagant love for us. That His love is always there whatever circumstance we may be. Sharers Budha, Nirva Dela Cruz, Junie Romeo and Kate Deiparine shared their experience of God’s love in different circumstance of life.
The second day started with a new fresh energy from the SFCs as they all joined the workshops. Workshops about the fruits of the loving relationship of the Father and the Son, we inherit the nature of this divine relationship through the work of the Holy Spirit. We thus need to grow deeply in this love inwardly and outwardly. Jesus commanded us to remain in His love. The workshops provided an opportunity for SFCs to discover and receive the fruits of remaining in the love of Christ and how these will bring our hearts to oneness in and through Him. Being blessed by these fruits moves us to create opportunities to share these fruits to others as we love God and our neighbors more.
In the afternoon, the second session started entitled “HeartWired to Christ” given by Hazel Lasala (SFC West B Sector Coordinator). She talks about the barriers of experiencing God’s love to the fullest and the subtle sins that keep us apart from the very heart of Christ. Sharers Kael Pasimio and Rachel Amano shared about how they where lead apart from the heart of Christ due to some decisions in the past and how God lead them back to Himself. The session ended with an examination of conscience and lead SFCs to confession and individual consolation in the Garden of Renewal administered by different priest, nuns and brothers from congregations of the Society of Jesus, Religious of Virgin Mary, Assumption, Daugthers of St Anne, Cenacle, sisters of the Poor,  Rogationist, Lasallette .
Dinner started early as the session 3 stated early entitled “HEART to HEART” given by Adrian Enaje (SFc Manila FTW). Sharers Alain Guerrero and Donna Carreon (see full sharing in the articles) shared about how they fully have put their trust and confidence in the Lord in the very difficult circumstance of life they are in. The session continued with the Holy Hour where Fr Xavier Olin, SJ lead everyone to reflect, be present, be healed, in conversation, heart to heart talk with Jesus in the blessed Sacrament. It was very meaningful and nourishing for all. Everyone poured their hearts to God and stayed still in silence for an hour before Him. Then the session ended with receiving Jesus Himself in the Holy sacrifice of the Mass also celebrated by Fr. Xavier Olin, SJ. Everyone fill recharged, fresh and renewed after the night expressed in their dances  during the praisefest and rave party.
Sunday where the last session by given by Rob Escano (new SFC Manila Head) about being “ONE Heart in CHRIST”. As a ministry how are we going to move as one in Christ. The day ended with ONE Manila prayer and a praisefest led by Shok Ariola with empowerment prayer to all the sector coordinators and SFC Manila Fulltime Mission Workers.
Everyone indeed has come to experience the very HEART of CHRIST this weekend.

the cross is the greatest symbol of love..
because a heart of a man stops beating...

MMC is truly a great experience for me! Im so blessed to receive an instant healing during the reflection when i lifted up my wounded heart to Jesus! I can see Him raising His heart. A heart full of love, full of compassion and mercy, shining, ablazing! I feel the warmth of His love and healing! and He smiled looking to us and we are One in His Love! I thank my cousin, Nene Grace who sponsored me. She is indeed an instrument of God. My cousin and her husband longs to have a baby and have waited for it for 3years now. They even go for an operation last year because both of them have a problem. Im so grateful that it was thru my cousin, I was able to attend MMC. So I lifted up to God their prayer request. During the Holy Hour: I say :Our Father" as I lay my hands to her in my mind for distant healing. It was Jesus who touch her. I give my full trust to Jesus that He will give us a miracle. That very same night, my cousin felt something different in her body. So they go for a check up Sunday Morning. Indeed God is so good! He answered all our prayers! My cousin is now pregnant as she told me this news last tuesday! My cousin was so happy, crying with happiness for what had happened to them. God loves us so much! He will grant us our hearts desire if we only just trust Him. We have now a new life in our family and true enough this MMC will always be in our hearts! God Bless!

SFC One Heart!
