because Catholic Education Matters!
I grew up during a spiritually impoverished time when Catechism was severely lacking! Also, I was raised in a town where ours was one of only a dozen or so Catholic families. We were in the minority and weekly, if not more often than that, I had to explain the fact that we did not worship statues nor did we worship Mary.
I firmly believe that in our lifetime, Christians in America will suffer persecution of all sorts. I pray that each member of our little brood will be strong enough to withstand it, and not knuckle under. I pray that I am raising firm members of the Church Militant.
My kids already know so much more than I do in regards to the faith because of the fantastic education they are getting at the elementary and secondary levels. I am thankful that my children will not know the Spiritual Poverty that I knew and pray that they will take their rich faith into the world, bringing as many people as possible into the fold of the Fullness of Christ.
