Family learns what it means to ‘love your neighbor’
My greatest hope for my two daughters was that they would grow up to be good people ñ to follow the commandment of Jesus to ìlove your neighbor as yourself.î
Our Catholic social tradition teaches us that loving our neighbor extends to our global neighbors, and that we are one human family despite national, racial, economic and other differences. It also guides us to put the needs of the poor and vulnerable first.
How, though, do you teach children such concepts?
I have been blessed because my work involves me daily in the Churchís social teachings, and I am able to share this gift with my family.
