There is no strict formula to being the parents of saints, but there are things one can do to ameliorate the process, as I tried to point out in some inchoate way in the reflection on the Benedict Option yesterday. All parents can really do is provide the example, the exhortation and the environment in which sanctity may flourish – all that it means to be truly human and Christ-like – but one can never discount the mystery of free will; each person must choose that path of life which will lead to life, or, tragically, not.
That said, the home-life,
