Praying together not only enriches family life but also leads the Catholic family toward its primary goal: the holiness and salvation of each member.
Prologue by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput:
If parents love God, children see and learn faith. Parents who pray together teach by the way they live that God is real; that He is present, listening, and eager to be a part of our lives. A life of prayer makes us fully human because it makes us real; it brings us out of ourselves, again and again, into conversation with the Author of life Himself — the God who made and loves us, and created everything we know. (Archbishop Charles Chaput)
