“But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” (MT 5: 19)

“Whoever obeys and teaches”—speaks not only about priests, nuns or catechists, but also about every parent. Every child looks at his mom and dad and observes how they “obey and teach these commandments.” When parents attend every Sunday Mass, when dad opens doors in the car to his wife, when mom respects her husband at home, when…—children will follow their example, and they “will be called greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

“Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom.” (Gospel Acclamation)
