Feast of Saint Anthony Mary Claret

Good morning. There are no restrictions to doing good. If it is the right thing to do then it should be done. This is an important lesson as parents we should teach our children. There will always be detractors in our lives who will attempt to detract us from doing the right thing. Just as Jesus in today’s Gospel there are always people who attempt to get in our way of doing the right thing. There are several things as parents to keep in mind toward teaching our children to always do the right thing. One thing is to praise our children whenever we see them doing the right thing. An approving glance or hug goes a long ways in reinforcing good behavior. Providing opportunities to make appropriate choices is helpful and it is important to begin early in guiding them in making good choices. The most important thing to remember is love. It is important to regularly let our children know how much we love and appreciate them. Give your child a hug today. Make a great day!

Today we recall the good life, gifts, and works of Saint Anthony Mary Claret.
