The Holy Spirit is depicted as a dove, which came down on Jesus at his baptism (Mt 3:16), starting him off on his earthly mission. In turn, Jesus imparts the Holy Spirit to his disciples, empowering them to be his witnesses to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8).
The Holy Spirit is the agent of evangelization. The Holy Spirit has called the Church to the New Evangelization. MFC recognizes that our Church is a missionary Church, and is committed to help her attain to her destiny. We do this mainly through the work of the Live Christ Share Christ (LCSC) mission.
We are families empowered by the Holy Spirit to help renew the face of the earth. We are committed to renew the family and to defend life. We are among those to be sent out on mission.
We are families that first of all belong to Christ. The outstretched arms of Christ and the slightly inward-bent hands signify both the embrace of Jesus upon the family, and also the presenting of the family to the world, being sent forth to do mission.
It is a faceless family. You become the faces of the Christian family.
The family is garbed in blue, which is the color of Mama Mary. As Missionary Families of Christ, we are part of the army of Mary.
We too are called to holiness. We are to be transformed in Christ. We are called to be like Christ, to be another Christ. We are called to Christian perfection. We are to “put on the new man, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” (Eph 4:24). And so we have the faceless Christ. The challenge to us is to be that Christ, to be holy, to be priest, prophet and king, to love and care for our family, and to be sent forth to do God’s work.
While we have the one MFC logo, we also make use of individual Section logos. The Section logos manifest that MFC at its core is inspired with zeal for Christ and his work. We want to proclaim Christ and make him Lord of all. We want to give value to families the way God as Creator intended, and Christ as Son exalted by coming into the world by way of a family. And we want to do the mission Jesus has sent us to do, to continue with his work of salvation, according to the eternal plan of God.
We are prodded by Jesus’ own proclamation: “I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing!” (Lk 12:49). Jesus baptizes us “with the holy Sprit and fire.” (Lk 3:16c). We are sent off as holy warriors. As such, the Section logos reflect the three-fold confluence of Christ, the Spirit and fire.
MFC is not just composed of family sections. Rather, these are family sections of one family that seeks to be an evangelistic and missionary community committed to become families empowered by the Holy Spirit to renew the face of the earth.
