Weekly Quote 8-2-17

Teach your children to say ‘forgive me’ early and often. It grows more difficult to ask for forgiveness as we grow older. Parents, ask forgiveness of each other often and if appropriate ask for your child’s forgiveness or their hearts may harden. Bring your children to Confession before they are seven years old, not because they sin but to help them develop a conscience and relationship with God and their priest.
— Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol, Cyprus
