A Lay Person's Pathway to Doing the Lord's Loving Will

I can't help but love Saint John Paul II and Pope Benedict the XVIs' 1992 joint-writing endeavor, the Catechism of The Catholic Church, as the two authors relate Christ’s teachings to the world in a clear, heart-provoking and beautiful manner.

Let me count the ways! More importantly than just helping around the house, chores teach responsibility, stewardship, diligence, obedience, order, and self-discipline. These virtues will also carry over into their schoolwork, music lessons, athletics, or any other endeavor they take on. Family life provides the perfect opportunity to instill these virtues by teaching our children to work.
