‘Parents, Your Task Is to Transmit the Faith to Your Children, With Your Example,’ Urges Pope
Pope Francis has reminded parents of their task: transmit the faith to their children. He stressed that they must do so with their own example, with their own life of faith, and not just through later studies at catechesis, but at the home, making their children see Jesus there and know Him.
The Holy Father repeatedly called for this today, Jan. 13, 2019, on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, during his homily. The Pope baptized, as is tradition, 27 babies (12 baby boys and 15 baby girls) during the Mass he celebrated this morning in the Sistine Chapel.
