The Inspiration: "Operation Overlord"
Operation Overlord was the codename for the Battle of Normandy, the Allied operation that launched the successful invasion of German-occupied Western Europe during World War II. The operation was launched on June 6, 1944 with the Normandy landings (commonly known as D-Day). A 1,200-plane airborne assault preceded an amphibious assault involving more than 5,000 vessels. Nearly 160,000 troops crossed the English Channel on June 6, and more than 2 million Allied troops were in France by the end of August. This successful assault was a turning point in the victory of the Allied forces over the mighty German army that ended World War II.
The Battle Plan: "Operation For Our Lord" (Op4OL)
Seventy-five years since D-day, CFC USA is launching Operation For Our Lord (Op4OL).
Its main thrust is for all of CFC USA, its servant-leaders, members and family ministries to stage an all-out assault against the enemy with its objectives – to fulflll the mission and vision of CFC by being Families in the Holy Spirit Renewing the Face of the Earth. This includes the desire to be a Saint, to love God, save souls and gain a significant foothold and victory over the enemy.
In the same breadth that the success of Operation Overlord in 1944 was achieved through the full support and commitment of 14 nations and its respective armies and citizens, the success of Operation For Our Lord depends on the FULL support and commitment of ALL its members of ALL ministries…. and our FULL dependence on our most potent weapons – the Grace of God, the Power of the Holy Spirit and the intercession of our Blessed Mother.
Each household (ALL ministries) is humbly requested to conduct a 4H (House Hold Holy Hour) meeting, that is for the whole household to do Eucharistic Adoration inside a Blessed Sacrament Chapel begging for the grace to be enlightened as to how the household can contribute to the success of Op4OL and accordingly, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, prepare and submit its plans to its Area Leader, through its unit head, chapter head, cluster head and sector head, as the case may be, who, in turn, will then pray, discern and develop an “Area Battle Plan.”
The prayerfully discerned Op4OL Battle Plan from the CFC USA National Council comprises 5 Sub-missions as follows:
• Divide & Conquer 153 (DC153)
• Go GOLD and GLOBAL for God's Greater Glory (G6)
• ANCOP One Life One Life
• Once a CFC, Always a CFC
• Holy Hour 24/7
