Family Prayer

A friend sent us this wonderful quote in an email today...

"Hence, with parents leading the way by example and family prayer, their children—indeed, all within the family circle—will find it easier to make progress in natural virtues, in salvation and in holiness. Husband and wife, raised to the dignity and the responsibility of parenthood, will be zealous in fulfilling their task as educators, especially in the sphere of religious education, a task that is primarily their own."

-from the Vatican II document Gaudium et Spes

If you enjoy this sort of reading, you would really enjoy the book "On Marriage and Family Life" by Saint John Chrysostom, Bishop and Doctor of the Church. It is a compilation of sermons and writings from the great Saint on everything from finding a spouse to raising children.
