In this episode of the Catholic Link podcast, Fr. Rob is joined by Melissa Kirking, an author and expert on how to bring Children to Adoration, to discuss her new book, Jesus and Me: Talking with My Greatest Friend, and the importance of bringing children to Adoration and to teach children prayers and means of communicating with Jesus.
Our Lord said in the Gospels that the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to children (see Matthew 19:14). Therefore, it is imperative for parents to help their children to grow and foster a personal relationship with our Lord. Fr. Rob and Melissa Kirking both share that it is better to spend a few minutes in prayer with our Lord than to spend no time at all. A relationship with our Lord is like any other relationship. Jesus and Me is a great tool for parents to learn how to share their faith to the next generation and help the children grow in that relationship. It is likely that a child would rather spend five minutes with a friend than no time when they know an hour of time with their friend is not possible.
