Parent Saints

“We are frequently tempted to think that holiness is only for those who can withdraw from ordinary affairs to spend much time in prayer. That is not the case. We are called to be holy by living our lives with love and by bearing witness in everything we do, wherever we find ourselves,” (Gaudete et exsultate 14). The Second Vatican Council reminds us that there is a universal call to holiness. Meaning, God calls each person to be in relationship with him, and he calls each of us to be holy as he is holy. Holiness is to be lived out in one’s particular state in life. This means that parents and children are meant to holy as God is holy, through the help of God’s grace. This workshop offers reflections on the lives of parent saints that are meant to inspire us to holy as parents ourselves.

This workshop is coming soon!
