Do I Have to Obey My Parents When I’m an Adult, Too?

Fr. Mike Schmitz

“Honor thy Father and thy Mother.”

We know from our youth that we are called to obey our parents as commanded by the 4th Commandment. But what about once we’re grown and out of their home?

Today Fr. Mike doles out some advise for adult children on what obedience and respect for one’s parents looks like and what the Catechism of the Catholic Church has to say about this relationship.
