Quote: The Good Shepherd and the Child: A Joyful Journey

In the introduction of The Good Shepherd and the Child: A Joyful Journey:
Every action a parent does to or with the child, however mundane it may seem, is truly education. All that a parent is becomes a powerful influence in the child's present and future formation. Parenting is a ministry or "service to life," as Silvana calls it. In her view, each parent has the dignity of being the "original and irreplaceable" person in the child's religious journey.

    1. You're welcome, Monica!

      I've been thinking a lot in the past week or so about how we're supposed to model the love the Father has for us and how we do that is more important than any math or reading we teach. Or perhaps, it's the foundation of anything else we want to teach...

      I'm still working it out.
