Thy Kingdom Come!
Dear Friends in Christ,
”We must sometimes bear with little defects in others, as we have, against our will, to bear with natural defects in ourselves. If we wish to keep peace with our neighbor, we should never remind anyone of his natural defects.” –Saint Philip Neri
Siblings can be really tough on each other. A boy once told me, “Fr. Michael, my charity with my sister is going great, I haven’t spoke with her in 1 week, so we have had no problems at all!” I try to remind them that the home is truly a “training camp” of virtue and that Christ is their invisible brother who sees everything and blesses their efforts to live self control and kindness. Parents, please give your children this example!!
