As for me and my household, we will serve the LORD. (Joshua 24: 15)
Every Catholic home, be it that of a single person, a bustling family, or a pair of empty nesters, is the domestic church. The purpose of Bringing the Faith Home is to build, strengthen, encourage, and inspire the Catholic faithful.
Christ chose to be born and grow up in the bosom of the holy family of Joseph and Mary. The Church is nothing other than “the family of God”. From the beginning, the core of the Church was often constituted by those who had become believers “together with all [their] household.” When they were converted, they desired that “their whole household” should also be saved. These families who became believers were islands of Christian life in an unbelieving world. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1655)
Initiated by Chris & Elaine Weickert, a married Midwest couple with six children and one grandchild, Bringing the Faith Home is a collaborative work featuring articles by a variety of authors. If you know an author you would recommend be invited to contribute to this effort, let us know
