The family is the basis of the Lord’s plan; and all forces of evil are focusing their evil on destroying the family because they know that by destroying the family, the foundations of the plan of God will be shaken.This knowledge can be discouraging and even frightening to us as parents. When the task seems too difficult and overwhelming, I like to turn it all over to the care of Our Blessed Mother and the saints, many of whom have lived out the vocation of marriage and family and are cheering us on in heaven as we endure the struggle here on earth. As difficult as it can be at times, take heart! As God promised the Israelites in the Old Testament when they faced attack from their enemies, “Do not fear or be dismayed at the sight of this vast multitude, for the battle is not yours but God’s. (2 Chronicles 20:15) And again, He says, “The Lord will fight for you; you have only to keep still.” (Exodus 14:14)
What are some other ways we can arm our children against the enemies of their souls?
