Evangelizing our Children; a Labor of Love – Paco Gavrilides

Evangelizing our Children;
a Labor of Love
Not too many years ago, in a conversation with some Catholic men about evangelizing and keeping our children in the faith, I detected a rather strong tone of cynicism in some of their responses. It was clear to me that their experience with their own children had not been so successful. Failure in this effort does not have to be the reality for Catholic parents. There is wisdom and power from God that can equip us and guide us in this parental effort. With trust in the Lord, and a willingness to labor in love on their behalf, we can accomplish the task of raising up our children as young disciples of Christ. This presentation seeks to provide wisdom, experience, insight, and encouragement for how to make this charge from our Lord a fruitful reality.
