How to Have a Good Family Life

Isn’t this the question everyone asks? Mercedarian Fr. Joseph Eddy does his best to provide an answer for this!

He speaks on the primary importance of the love of the parents, which must come from our Lord. Because Christ in the Blessed Sacrament is the source of love, Fr. Joseph Eddy encourages families to spend as much time is practical in Eucharistic adoration.

Everyday difficulties will come up, because there is no perfect family. We are to expect sufferings from following Christ, and the family must come together, always keeping God at the center to overcome these trials. Even the very simple act of eating together serves as a source of unity which commonly lost in today’s family.
