NILA Pope Francis made a surprise visit to hundreds of former street children now under the care of Tulay ng Kabataan (TNK).
The video uploaded by the Catholic News Service shows how the children warmly welcomed the Pope.
The pope stayed there for several minutes there after celebrating Mass at the Manila Cathedral on Friday.
He was accompanied by Manila Archbishop Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle.
The former street children, through the help of Cardinal Tagle, invited Pope Francis by writing 1,000 letters months before his scheduled visit to the Philippines.
TNK is a non-government organization that aims to save Metro Manila’s street children from begging, drugs and prostitution.

Pope Francis, world needs more women representatives and young people

Pope Francis said the world needs more women representatives and young people not imprisoned in “youth museums.”
During his encounter with the youth at the University of Sto. Tomas, Pope Francis again went off script to respond to the issues of the youth who spoke before him about poverty and cynicism because of an influx of information from the Internet and social media.
In Spanish, he asked why there were a few women representatives in front of him today, which included a little girl who openly wept in front of him and asked him: “Bakit po pumapayag ang Diyos na mayroong ganitong nangyayari? [Why would God allow these kinds of hardships to fall upon us?]”
“Women have a lot to tell us in today’s society. Sometimes, we’re too machistas (men-centric) and we don’t allow room for the women. But women are capable of seeing things from a different angle. Women are able to pose questions that men are not able to understand,” he said.
He noted it was only 12-year-old Glyzelle Iris Palomar who was able to ask the hardest question. “She was able to express herself, but in tears…”
“She is the only one who has put forward a question for which there is no answer and she was not even able to express it in words but rather in tears," he said.
He urged the organizers, “when the next pope comes, please more girls and women among the number.”

Household Leaders Training Talk 1 - Being a Servant (Filipino Version)



1. Upang maging mas mabuting Kristiyanong lingkod, nararapat na maunawaan natin ang kalikasan ng paglilingkod bilang tagasunod ni Cristo Jesus.
a) Kailangang itanong sa ating sarili:
* Bakit tayo naglilingkod?
* Sino tayo bilang tagapaglingkod?
* Paano ba tayo naglilingkod?
b) Upang masagot ang mga tanong na ito, dapat magkaroon tayo ng isang pagtingin sa katotohanan na makakapagturo sa atin ng kabuuang pagturing sa paglilingkod na ating gagampanan. Dapat na makita natin ang katotohanang ito sa ating mundong ginagalawan, hindi sa kung paano ito nakikita ng mundo, ngunit sa kung paano ito nakikita ng Diyos.
2. May dalawang pangunahing bahagi ng katotohanan ang dapat nating makita.
a) UNANG KATOTOHANAN. Mayroong dalawang kaharian ang nagtutunggali, ang kaharian ng kadiliman sa ilalim ni Satanas at ang kaharian ng liwanag sa ilalim ng ating Panginoon.
* Itong si Satanas ay may totoong kapangyarihang espirituwal. Mayroong puwersa na nasa kanyang kontrol na sumasalungat sa Diyos at mga tagasunod ng Diyos.
Efeso 6:12
* Ang pinaka-pangunahin na kalaban natin ay hindi mga problema ng lipunan, kahinaan ng tao, kakulangan sa edukasyon, o anupaman na katulad nito — isang buong kaharian ang ating katunggali. Ang laban natin ay isang espirituwal na digmaan.
* Kung kaya anumang gawin natin na tumutukoy sa pag-alis ng sinumang tao mula sa kaharian ng kadiliman, at pagdadala sa taong ito patungo sa kaharian ng liwanag ng Diyos, ay tumutukoy din sa pakikipaglaban para sa puso at isip ng mga tao. Sa madaling sabi, ang ating paglilingkod ay pakikibahagi sa espirituwal na pakikidigma (SPIRITUAL WARFARE).
b) IKALAWANG KATOTOHANAN. Ang tao ay nasa kasalanan at pagkabilanggo, at kailangang matubos.
* Ang saligang problema ng mundo ay hindi ang mga sakit ng lipunan, kundi ang pag-iral ng kasalanan (ang mga sakit ng lipunan ay paghahayag o bunga lamang ng tunay na problema).
* Ang tao ay kailangang maipagkasundo sa Diyos, at tanging sa pamamagitan ni Hesus magagawa ito.
* Tayong mga naglilingkod ang mga kinakasangkapan ng Diyos upang makapagbalik-loob ang ibang tao sa Kanya.

Tithe Purpose
Given to immediate body of Christ of which one is a part and where one draws support for one's Christian life
*Ex: ICC and SFC

Given to support the work of the Lord
Scriptural Basis
We rob God if we don't tithe.

For "food in God's house."

Generosity to "open the floodgates."
Tithing is not part of the SFC covenant, but it is certainly an essential part of our life as a growing Christian

Only source of income is contributions from its members

Monthly collection at GA
Roadmap to Financial Stability
Realize that we are blessed.

Trust God for provisions

Do our part: (+)income, (-)expenses
Increase sources of funds

Passive income


Decrease our uses of funds
Simplify your lifestyle

Learn how to save

Make a budget
1 Corinthians 4:7

"Name something you have that you have not received. If then, you have received it, why are you boasting as if it were your own?"
Proverbs 10:22

"It is the Lord's blessing that brings wealth, and no effort can substitute for it"
Proverbs 3:9

"Honor the Lord with your wealth"
Psalm 24:1

"The Lord's are the earth and its fullness; the world and those who dwell in it"
10% of income after taxes
Malachi 3:7b-10

"Since the days of your ancestors you have turned aside from my statutes and have not kept them. Return to me, that I may return to you, says the Lord of hosts. But you say, "Why should we return?" Can anyone rob God? But you are robbing me! And you say, "How have we robbed you?" Of tithes and contributions! You are indeed accursed, for you, the whole nation, rob me. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse. That there may be food in my house. Put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, and see if I do not open the floodgates of heaven for you, and pour down upon you blessing without measure!"
SFC tithes pay for:

Support for missionaries
Formation of members
Community activities
Purchase of assets as needed
International mission
In Conclusion...
Be generous - Give, Give, Give!

Even our Lord paid taxes

Share with the Poor

Remember the floodgates God promised us
Matthew 17:22-27

"When they came to Capernaum, the collectors of the temple tax approached Peter and said, "Does not your teacher pay the temple tax?" "Yes," he said."
In a month, how much do you spend on:
Cell phone/Technology
It's the right thing to do

God's work needs money, God Himself does not!

Don't focus on the 10%, but on the 90% we keep for ourselves!
Let's not lose the proper perspective
