St. Isidore the Farmer
Paul taught Pricilla and Aquilla, and they in turn taught Apollos, who then taught others. Christ's message is taught person to person. Even someone learned like Apollos needed others to explain and teach to him.
One more thing: The transfer of Christ's message from person to person has two implications for moms. The first is, never underestimate the importance of what you teach your children about God. You may think they aren't listening, but keep talking! By God's design, it's the way we learn. The second is the importance of finding teachers to help you grow. Sure it's important to read God's word and to pray, but the reading today tells us it's also important to have teachers. Make a commitment to grow spiritually this summer through a prayer or study group at church or an online class through your diocese.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to spread your message, especially to my family, by what I say and do each day. Bring wise and holy people into my life to help me grown in my faith and knowledge of you. In your name I pray. Amen. St. Isidore the Farmer, pray for me.
