How are we communicating to our children?

Today's reflection from Catholic Mom's Cafe: 5-Minute Retreats for Every Day of the Year (page 131)

PONDER: "Actions speak louder than words; let your words teach and your actions speak. We are full of words but empty of actions, and therefore are cursed by the Lord, since he himself cursed the fig tree when he found no fruit but only leaves. It is useless for a man to flaunt his knowledge of the law if he undermines its teaching by his actions."~ Saint Anthony of Padua

OFFER: Today is the feast of Saint Anthony of Padua. His words are sobering. Consider what your children see in all that you do today. Do your actions reinforce or undermine the Faith that you are teaching them?

PRAY: Lord Jesus, I want to bear fruit with your grace. May all that I do give witness to you. Act of Love, Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.

SAVOR: I want my actions to speak of love.
