Sunday, February 5, 2012:
Jesus said: “My people, the family is a very important nucleus for the basic units of your society. It is very precious to guard the unity of your families with prayer. It is difficult with your daily events to get your family together at least for your evening meal. Let your prayer before meals be a beginning to join Me with your family. I love all of you and I want to see love, peace, and harmony in each family. You have heard the expression: ‘The family that prays together, stays together.’ If possible try to have your family pray a rosary together, or at least one decade of the rosary. The husband and wife should also try to pray some prayers together. I know that you pray your own prayers, but it is important for unity with Me to pray together. Once you form this prayer together as a habit, you will see it as a part of your life with Me. Parents need to help their children with all parts of their lives, including the teaching of the faith. You can lead by your good example in having a house rule to go to Sunday Mass. Teach your children the value of daily prayer so I can support them both in good times and in trying times. Invite Me and My Blessed Mother to protect your home by consecrating it to My Sacred Heart Enthronement. Place some blessed medals and statues or holy pictures around your home. By striving to keep your families together in love, you can imitate My Holy Family. Love your children, and show them your affection and true concern for their daily lives. Thank you for coming together in a Catholic marriage as a loving environment for your children.”
