All Family Time is Sacred Time.
Each moment counts. From getting ready in the morning, through meals and sports practices, to the final kiss goodnight, each moment given to your child matters. It may not always be the beautifully, scripted Instagram shot, in fact, it may be a messy moment that matters most. Just remember, God is with you in each of these moments, messy or beautiful.
Praying together may feel weird in the beginning, but the pay off can be pretty great.

A Blessing for Mothers
This Sunday, May 10th, is Mother's Day. We can all bless our mothers at home.
Have your family extend their hands in blessing as you pray this prayer over your mom:
Loving God, as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children, so you watch over your Church. Bless these women, that they may be strengthened as Christian mothers. Let the example of their faith and love shine forth. Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honor them always with a spirit of profound respect.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
