Family Life

  In our society today, family life has been attacked the most. With divorce, disobedience and rebellion of the children, and single parent homes, the family unit is no longer of importance. The problem with this is that without the family, you no longer have the building blocks of the country.

   In having a structured, ordered family, you make strong people for the next generation. Add Catholicism to this, and you have strong souls that will keep their Faith until the day they die. If order is in the family, the children can grow, the parents can grow in love, and the benefits are endless.

  With many of these strong united families, you have the foundation of the population, and the foundation of the Faith. The reason this has been so attacked in this day and age is simply because the world no longer wants religion. Of course they can keep the things that make them feel good, but Catholicism as a whole
, the world wants to see destroyed. Why? Because it does not suit the feelings of everyone. And so the future generations of our society have broken homes, and no foundation of the Faith. And so since there are many with similar backgrounds, it is labeled "uncool" to follow a set religion, and the idea begins to disappear.

   I encourage you all to go against the trend of a "do what you want" family, and structure it. In the end it will be infinitely worth it, and you can make new leaders for the generations to come.


  1. Society today is broken. I wear it as a badge of honor if people disagree with the way I live my life.

  2. Exactly! We mustn't care about what people think of us, rather we must stand up and be the light in the darkness. God bless you, Mr. Hamel.

  3. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful thought. It is my everyday supplication that the Lord will keep our family together--grounded in faith and love in Him. I pray earnestly that the Lord will guide me and my husband in our duties as parents and spouses that we may raise godly children and live in love and harmony with one another all through our lives.

  4. You're very welcome! May God then bless your entire family now and for the rest of eternity.
