Married Couples: Watch Over Your Children

"Dear married couples, watch over your children and, in a world dominated by technology, transmit to them, with serenity and trust, reasons for living, the strength of faith, pointing them towards high goals and supporting them in their fragility. Your vocation is not easy to live, especially today, but the vocation to love is a wonderful thing, it is the only force that can truly transform the world." ~Pope Benedict XVI, June 3rd, 2012

The Holy Father also said, "Dear families, despite the relentless rhythms of the modern world, do not lose a sense of the Lord’s day."  In this spirit, I highly recommend the book "Marriage in the Heart and Mind of the Church," as a means for couples (married and engaged) to recall their God-given mission to raise Catholic children.

Certainly the best way to watch over one's children is to keep them around traditional Catholic priests in an environment free from Modernism.

Most absolutely! And in this era, to do so can be a challenge requiring heroic sacrifice. Deus vult!

Thank you Pope Benedict XVI for sharing this very inspiring message of yours. Yeah right watching over your children the parent's greatest responsibility. Specially nowadays that the technology is improving we can really say that through internet nothing is impossible that is why the future of our children lies barely in our hands.
