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.’”
