Parents are the principal and first educators of their children. In this sense the fundamental task of marriage and family is to be at the service of life (CCC, 1653).

“Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do…but how much love we put in that action.”
This nearly mirrors the Little Flower’s famous saying, “We must do small things with great love.” When we put this into practice with our family members, it may well involve doing the petty, grievous things, such as getting a child a glass of water or bringing in the newspaper for our spouse. But these acts, when done with kindness and true charity, multiply so that the home is filled with harmony and love.

Joszef Cardinal Mindszenty, the courageous defender of the Church during the Communist occupation of Hungary, had an exceptionally strong affection for motherhood. In his book, The Mother, he penned an eloquent tribute to all mothers, emphasizing their particular closeness to God: “The most important person on earth is a mother. She cannot claim the honor of having built Notre Dame Cathedral. She need not. She has built something more magnificent than any cathedral—a dwelling for an immortal soul, the tiny perfection of her baby’s body. The angels have not been blessed with such a grace. They cannot share in God’s creative miracle to bring new saints to Heaven. Only a human mother can. Mothers are closer to God the Creator than any other creature; God joins forces with mothers in performing this act of creation… What on God’s good earth is more glorious than this; to be a mother?”

“As I sat with Andrew this morning, watching him sleeping while recovering from his surgery, I was overcome by a wide range of emotions. He was, for a few minutes, the two-year-old I took to the hospital for stitches on Christmas Day when he cut his forehead. Then he was my high school senior who split his chin during the championship match at a wrestling tournament and I had to take to the ER for stitches. Then he was my son, now a man, who with great courage and a lot of grace, came back from the edge of death and while still working so get back to 100%, contains the strength, hope, and love that have made me a proud father for the past 24 years. I am so very grateful for him and for all my children. I am blessed with a wonderful friend and lover who has been so strong through this journey. And I have been supported by the prayers of so many of you. If I never make another penny in this world, I will die a very rich man. Thank you everyone. May you be filled with the same joy I am feeling right now.”

Baby Matthew is a being called a miracle after his parents learned he was misdiagnosed during pregnancy. His parents refused abortion after doctors told them Matthew would likely die at birth — but he has beat all odds! Read this story by clicking on the link in @liveactionorg’s bio!

Life’s miracle of birth ❤️ an inside view of life inside the womb.

A child is not something owed to one, but is a gift. The “supreme gift of marriage” is a human person. A child may not be considered a piece of property, an idea to which an alleged “right to a child” would lead. In this area, only the child possesses genuine rights: the right “to be the fruit of the specific act of the conjugal love of his parents,” and “the right to be respected as a person from the moment of his conception.
The Gospel shows that physical sterility is not an absolute evil. Spouses who still suffer from infertility after exhausting legitimate medical procedures should unite themselves with the Lord’s Cross, the source of all spiritual fecundity. They can give expression to their generosity by adopting abandoned children or performing demanding services for others.
—CCC 2378-2379

The home is the first school of Christian life and “a school for human enrichment.” Here one learns endurance and the joy of work, fraternal love, generous — even repeated — forgiveness, and above all divine worship in prayer and the offering of one’s life (CCC, 1657).

{I’ve grown to enjoy these imperfect family portraits much more that the ones when everyone’s actually looking at the camera and not putting their hands in their shirt}”

“When a child is given to his parents, a crown is made for that child in Heaven, and woe to the parents who raise a child without consciousness of that eternal crown!” -Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
