I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Reflections for Thursday February 2, Luke 2:22-40

My Reflections:
Do we always bring our children to church for Mass? Do we present them to the Lord and say: “I offer my child to you take care of him/her.

Because of our busyness and perhaps because we were not brought-up by our parents to be always present at Mass every Sunday. We forget also to bring our children to attend Mass; if this is how we are now we must correct this.

We must first of all bring our children closer to Jesus for the reason that this is our primary duty as parents. We must introduce them to Jesus by reading to them His life in the bible and we must implant in them the habit of regularly reading the bible. 

What will it profit our children if they have the best material things in this world yet they don’t have in their hearts Jesus? Nothing! Just try observing the behavior of a child who is brought-up with the values of Jesus vis-a-vis a child brought-up with the values of this world.

Let us therefore bring our children to the church and let us introduce them to Jesus. ...
