Parents have a responsibility to share the faith with their children. What does this look like? How do you do it well? Jeff Cavins continues his discussion of the formation of children and parents’ role in that process. He encourages parents to live the life they want their children to live.
Snippet from the Show
Religion is not simply a subject in school. Religion is a way of living.
Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone! Therefore, you shall love the Lord, your God, with your whole heart, and with your whole being, and with your whole strength. Take to heart these words which I command you today. Keep repeating them to your children. Recite them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them on your arm as a sign and let them be as a pendant on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your houses and on your gates.
Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 2223
Parents have the first responsibility for the education of their children.
Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 2226
Family catechesis precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in the faith. Parents have the mission of teaching their children to pray and to discover their vocation as children of God.
Familiaris Consortio, Paragraph 36
“Hence, parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educators is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it.”
