God’s plan for the family is to be a model of the love of the Holy Trinity. “The Christian family is a communion of persons, a sign and image of the communion of the Father and the Son in the Holy Spirit. In the procreation and education of children it reflects the Father’s work of creation. It is called to partake of the prayer and sacrifice of Christ.” (CCC 2205)
Every family is called to holiness and it is our job as parents to make Christ the center of the home. How can you build a culture of faith within your family? What is the best way to teach your children about God and the ways of the Catholic Church?
It is no easy task! The best place to begin is with prayer. We don’t have all the answers, but God does. Establish a regular prayer time each day and ask the Lord to give you wisdom in your parenting. We can also learn from the Saints and holy men and women who have gone before us.
