AMORIS LAETITIA, TOWARD A BETTER EDUCATION OF CHILDREN: PASSING ON THE FAITH
Raising children calls for an orderly process of handing on the faith. This is made difficult by current lifestyles, work schedules and the complexity of today’s world, where many people keep up a frenetic pace just to survive. Even so, the home must continue to be the place where we learn to appreciate the meaning and beauty of the faith, to pray and to serve our neighbor. This begins with baptism... Faith is God’s gift, received in baptism, and not our own work, yet parents are the means that God uses for it to grow and develop. Handing on the faith presumes that parents themselves genuinely trust God, seek him and sense their need for him...This means that we need to ask God to act in their hearts, in places where we ourselves cannot reach...”couples and parents should be properly appreciated as active agents in catechesis...Family catechesis is of great assistance as an effective method in training young parents to be aware of their mission as the evangelizers of their own family.”1
