  Word Con 2019: Living according to Your Word

Christ is Alive! He is our hope…. These are the words of Pope Francis in his new exhortation Christus Vivit. The Pope does not just address this to the young of the church but to all. These words shouted out to the world who is faced with the battle of loneliness, manipulation, exploitation and loss of meaning for life. A world bombarded by fast and flooding messages that no longer makes sense or even present the truth about the self, others or the world. These words of the Pope beg the question “How can He be our hope?”. Christ Jesus who is the Word is our Truth and our Life (Jn 14:6). For the Word will stand forever (Is 40:8) and has remained constant.

Word conference 2019 is continuing its mission to proclaim the Word as our source of life. The theme for this year’s conference is “...living according to Your Word” (Psalm 119:9b). The message of the Word permeates in all levels of human life. The Word remains a critical and disturbing message in the world that has become a prey of the passing trends and where life has become a commodity and ‘usable’.

The conference prayers that the participants receive that gift of hope that guides each one to be alive, and live life in its fullness (Jn10:10). Living each day guided by the Word and according to the Word. At the end of the day, they will always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks for a reason for the hope that is in them (1Peter 3:15).

This one-day conference is the mission of the Bible commission of the Claretian Missionaries in the Philippines as servants of the Word. Through Claretian Communications Foundation, Inc. and Claret School of Quezon City, this conference is for all who wish to listen and interact with the Word. There will be four (4) speakers during the day and after two speakers, the conference will go to a sala where the participants can interact with each other and with the speaker on the word. The conference will culminate with a celebration of the Word in the Holy Eucharist.
