AFLC members discussing on “How can we render love normal in our family”


KOTA KINABALU: The second day of the diocesan level celebration of the World Meeting of Families (WMOF) was a virtual event broadcast live by Keningau Diocese Kekitaan FM via their YouTube channel. James Patrick was the host and moderator.

The Archdiocesan Family Life Commission (AFLC) members recited a Rosary before learning about what the WMOF logo represented.

Julita and Mario Domingo presented the first catechesis on ‘Nazareth – Rendering Love Normal’. The catechesis touched on rendering love in the family as a normal daily activity, leading the family to live harmoniously as a communion of persons contributing to peace and joy in a family institution.

Rendering love in the family does not require materialistic costs; it only needs commitment, humility, and generosity in loving. Making room for Christ in one’s heart and the midst of the family is of utmost importance. Likewise, spending quality time with the family, sharing daily experiences and concerns, playing indoor or outdoor games with the children, and watching movies together are ordinary acts that are great ways of making love flow naturally in our hearts.

Before inviting attendees to reflect on ‘How can we render love normal in our family’, the Domingo couple reiterated that love should be expressed naturally and we should not be ashamed to show love, as it could change the world.

Members of AFLC summed up their reflections as love being a culture that cannot cease but should be maintained and practiced most simply - say ‘I love you’, ‘good morning’ and spend more time together and be present on any given occasion.

AFLC member Sr Lucy Embayan said “I share my experiences in encountering Christ’s love every day and apply it to my family members or people around me. I earnestly and naturally sustaining this communal act so others will learn how to make this love normal, which also naturally flows and is rooted in them. --AFLC, Catholic Sabah
