Am I my brothers’ keeper?” – Genesis 4:9

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

“Am I my brother’s keeper?” There is a temptation to answer this question — asked by Cain after he killed his brother Abel — in the negative. But to answer “no” to that question would be a flawed understanding of this passage in the Book of Genesis.

Train the young in the way they should go; even when old, they will not swerve from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As Catholic Schools Week approaches, it is worth reflecting on these important words from paragraph 2223 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  “Parents have the first responsibility for the education of their children.”  The same paragraph goes on to quote Pope St. John Paul II, “Parents should teach their children to subordinate the ‘material and instinctual dimensions to interior and spiritual ones.’”

Inicia al niño en el camino que debe seguir, y ni siquiera en su vejez se apartará de él” (Proverbios 22, 6)

Queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo,

Al acercarse la Semana de las Escuelas Católicas, merece la pena reflexionar sobre estas importantes palabras del párrafo 2223 del Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica.  “Los padres son los primeros responsables de la educación de sus hijos”.  En el mismo párrafo se cita al Papa San Juan Pablo II, “Los padres han de enseñar a los hijos a subordinar las dimensiones ‘materiales e instintivas a las interiores y espirituales’”.
