Living the Faith at Home

Living the faith at home – living as a “domestic church” – includes a rich family prayer life and developing a Catholic culture in the home that is conducive to the growth of faith and loving relationships for the entire family.

Pope Francis gives us a beautiful snapshot of what the domestic church looks like in his recent document “On Love in the Family:” “The family is called to join in daily prayer, to read the word of God and to share in Eucharistic communion, and thus to grow in love and become ever more fully a temple in which the Spirit dwells” (no. 29).
