St. Peter Gonzalez
Today's gospel makes it very clear that the way to the Father is through the Son. Though separate, they are one and you can't get to the Father without the Son. A good way to understand this is to watch your kids when they really want something. If they think you might say no, they go to the other parent who might be a little more willing. That attempt to divide and conquer never works with God.
One more thing: Why wouldn't you want to believe in Christ? His mercy and forgiveness and ultimate act of love draw us to him. Therefore, it's hard to understand why the Pharisees put up such a fuss. I guess sometimes our kids may be like the Pharisees. They want to believe that we are motivated out of love for them when we make decisions, but they may not yet be able to understand. Presenting a united front helps kids learn to trust and rely on you as parents.
Prayer: Father in heaven, thank you for sending your Son to be our redeemer and show us the way to you. St. Peter, pray for me. Amen.
