Saints speak on the family

Fathers and mothers owe four things to their children: maintenance, instruction, correction and good example. - St John Baptist de la Salle.
Do not forget daily prayers; keep holy the Sundays and Holy days, and receive frequently the Sacraments, being well prepared. When it is possible, say in common the morning and night prayers, and grace before meals. - St John Vianney.
Our Lord needs from us neither great deeds nor profound thoughts. Neither intelligence nor talents. He cherishes simplicity - St Therese of Lisieux.
He who wants something other than Christ, does not know what he wants; he who seeks something other than Christ, does not know what he wishes; and he who works but not for Christ, does not know what he is doing - St Philip Neri.
For recreation, choose the games which are approved and which also help to make you strong in body. Do not cheat or upset others, by showing bad temper. Raise your mind sometimes to God, or our Blessed Lady, by means of a little prayer; thus following the advice of St Paul “Do all for the glory of God” - St John Bosco.
