Saint Celestine V
Christ did not ask for God to take us out of the world, for the world is where we belong. The world is where we make our choices, freely to accept or reject God. Christ only asked that we be protected.
One more thing: Christ left the earth, but he did not abandon you. He showers his protection over you and your family. St. Paul acknowledges to his followers that the wolves will come among them. He says further, "and from your own group men will come forward perverting the truth." As parents, it's your job to protect your children. When society says it's okay to let your kids have the run of the remote, the internet, even the neighborhood, know that with Christ as your model, you must protect your children.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the precious ones you have given me, my children. Help me to follow Christ's example and protect my children so that they will find their way home to you in heaven. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. St. Celestine, pray for me.
