July 10, 2015 – Raising Children Up in the Way They Should Go

As parents, God has given each of us the grave responsibility, but also the graces, to be the primary formulators of our children. We can’t delegate this to anyone – not a caregiver, a grandparent, a babysitter or a teacher.As Catholic parents trying to raise our children to be leaders for the Church in today’s society, our families need to live in the world, but not be of the world.

We need to take the narrow path that leads to life – eternal life – even when, and especially when it means not doing what everyone else is doing.

“Jesus Christ is the same today as he was yesterday and as he will be forever (Hebrews 13:8-9, JB).”
