“Our children may think they are wiser than we are. But we know that, for all their intelligence, they still lack the wisdom that comes only from experience. Thus, as a general principle, we expect children to be obedient to their parents for the children’s own sake. The same idea applies when it comes to the traditions and teachings of the Church.”

-from The Church is Our Mother


“It’s true then, that I’m sent not only to love God but to make Him loved. It’s not enough for me to love God, if my neighbor doesn’t love Him.”

— St. Vincent de Paul
