The formation of our families is something that we do not take lightly.
Without the Eucharist and God’s mercy we are nothing. When we lose sight of what is highest, we lose sight of our goal. When we lose sight of our goal, we lose our sense of purpose. With no purpose, we have no identity. We must go to Mass to unveil the truth that we are children of God and WE ARE LOVED. We are loved so much! At Mass we receive the love of God and participate in the eternal celebration of God's victory over death by the death and resurrection of his Son. In the Sacrament of Reconciliation we see God’s love through his mercy and receive the grace necessary to overcome even the most dreadful challenges.
Prayer is an act of faith and is the basis of our relationship with God. Prayer does not have to be complex, it can be as simple as saying just one Our Father. By challenging your child/ren to pray every day it will help them to form into the kind of person that God is calling them to be, whatever that may be.
God has given you the great gift of family! Honest conversations about things that matter can go a long way in setting your child up for success in life. Ask questions, and share bible stories together. If you need help in having these conversations, rely on a bible like, The Catholic Children's Bible, or The Catholic Youth Bible from St. Mary's Press. Know that we are praying for you and your children as we make this journey together.
