“Blessed are the pure of heart, for they will see God.”
I sat in the Adoration Chapel and was filled with an overwhelming desire to be close to God, to see His face, to be enveloped in His embrace. Then, a new thought pierced through my consciousness like an arrow.
“I want all of those things for my children, too!”
I began to pray fervently for each of my five children by name, asking God to show them His love and mercy throughout their lives and to give my husband and me wisdom to guide them toward heaven.
As parents, we have so many responsibilities. School work, sports practices, music lessons, friends, birthday parties, sleep overs. The list is endless. We are called to help our children make prudent decisions in every aspect of their lives, but our most important calling must not get lost in the busyness of daily life.
We are called to lead our children on a path of purity, that their hearts will be receptive to the will of God. We are called to lead our children to sainthood, and to allow them to lead us to holiness as well. A lofty aspiration? An unachievable ideal? Some might think so, but God has given us the tools we need to fulfill His desires for us.
