WAKE UP THE WORLD! 2015 YEAR OF CONSECRATED LIFE
As parents, you are your children’s first teachers and witnesses to the gospel. The church relies on you to awaken in your children the knowledge that they are loved and that they have a sacred purpose: to share that love with others for the greater glory of God. From teaching them their first prayers to introducing them to the art of questioning and listening, you are providing your children with the essential skills they’ll need to discern where God is calling them on the path of love, service, and fulfillment.
10 Suggestions for fostering happy and holy families-essential for nurturing vocations
- Pray daily as a family in thanksgiving, for guidance, for forgiveness.
- Talk with your children about their worries and concerns; their hopes and dreams.
- Share meals together as often as possible.
- Tell stories about your family history-the good and the bad. Talk about how you became a family, and the day your children were born.
- Decide together your family goals and what your biggest do’s and don’ts are.
- Be active in your parish and your community. Encourage your children to participate in the ministries of the parish.
- Teach family members to fight fair and forgive easily.
- Talk about your faith and the men and women, including sisters, brothers, and priests, who have had an important influence on you.
- Work to reduce stress among all family members. Have fun and play together each day.
- Encourage your children to be creative and compassionate and know that those are the greatest of God’s gifts.
