Croí Nua Spirituality Centre, Galway
Handing on Our Faith in the Home.
“To be a parent is to find oneself enrolled in an elite school of Love “
Facilitator: Kate Liffey
“The spirituality of family love is made up of thousands of small but real gestures….In that variety of gifts and encounters which deepen communion, God has his dwelling place. This mutual concern “brings together the human and the divine” for it is filled with the love of God.” (AL, 315)
Facing the challenge of handing on the faith is a challenge for parents but also for grandparents, they can play a very powerful role.
Grandparents, you can be part of this great adventure!
“To Love someone is to show to them their beauty, their worth and their importance”.
