Prophets, Fireflies, and Fireworks | #835

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary Time, 14th Sunday (B) We probably think that prophets are called to preach the Gospel in far-off lands. But God calls you to preach the Gospel in your own town and to your own family. Here are three suggestions for preaching the Gospel to your children:

  1. Let yourself be challenged and changed
  2. Pray with your children
  3. Play with your children

When we get down to their level and see with their eyes, we begin to realize that they too are the prophets, and we are the rebellious house.

Going Deeper: Teach your children the Our Father, if they don’t know it already. If you were to preach the Gospel at home, where would you start? Make a plan.
