It has been my constant prayer and yearning that my children grow to become faithful Catholics who live their lives in preparation for God’s kingdom. I know that a lot of you share this very same desire, but in this sinful world that we are living in this isn’t something that can be done without effort.
There are a lot of things we can do that can help our children develop an eternal love for and a strong relationship with Jesus Christ. We can constantly pray for and with them, take them to mass regularly, tell them of God’s love and the basic saving truths from the Bible, and open their eyes to the doctrines of the Church just to name a few. I recently read another mom’s thoughts about the most important thing we can do in Leading Our Children to the Kingdom of God. She believes that there is nothing more influential to our children than our own actions–our very own examples. I thought this was good advice for parents who want to raise good Catholics.
