Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

“Parents for Eternal Life”.

Have you seen this article? Home-schoolers sometimes at odds with dioceses . Warning: it might get your heart rate up and your heart sadden by Father Peter M.J. Stravinskas take on home-schoolers.

There is so much to say about it all but I will just recall what I heard Bishop Fulton Sheen say:
If you want your kids to defend their Faith send them to a public school, if you want them to lose their Faith send them to a Catholic School.’

I believe that Bishop Fulton Sheen would say if he was alive would be more in lines in Home-school your children to know and defend their faith.

What is most upsetting is how Fr. Stravinskas makes us out to be anti-church/clergy which is so crazy because thanks to Homeschooling we have a better relationship with our clergy and our children and our whole family have a great love for them and for the church!

So after you read that article head over to Fr. Hardon's article on "The Teaching of the Catholic Church on Home Schooling Parents for Eternal Life" to ensure you that you are call to a higher calling to educate your child not only for this world but Eternal Life.

Hi Cecilia, I did hear about this ridiculous article from Fr. Stravinska who must be feeling the pressure of the low attendance rates at the Catholic Schools and is looking for a place to lay the blame. Do you know Melody from Blossoming Joy? She also posted her outrage at this priest's viewpoint.
