Sts. Timothy and Titus, bishops
"as I recall your sincere faith that first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and that I am confident lives also in you."
One more thing: Christ likens the word of God to a seed. Those who hear it and who's hearts are prepared for it, find it takes root and grows. But like any seed, it needs nurturing. Who is a natural at nurturing? MOMS of course!! It's what we do best. I am an integral part of growing the Kingdom of God. Look at what St. Paul says about St. Timothy. His faith came to him through his mother and grandmother. Being a mom is no small thing! I must always remember, I may be raising saints.
Prayer: Father in heaven, thank you for the 'sprouts' you have entrusted to me in my children. Help me to nourish their faith and help them grow into the men and women you want them to be. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. Sts. Timothy and Titus, pray for me.
