Honor your father and your mother

July 26, 2019 6:00 am

“Honor your father and your mother, that you may have a long life in the land which the LORD, your God, is giving you.” (EX 20: 12) 

Today we celebrate the feast of Our Lady’s parents-Ana and Joachim. Mary was chosen by God to be His Beloved Son’s Mother, but He also chose holy parents for her. Father of us all, from Whom every fatherhood comes, knows perfectly how important our parents are. When we received a gift of parenthood, we also received an amazing mission-to teach our children about love, which is always respectful, free, creative and joyful. Watching your relationship with your spouse, they will learn naturally how to love.

“Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart and yield a harvest through perseverance.” (Gospel Acclamation)
