Helping Children Make Better Confessions

If children are to grow up practicing the faith, they need to practice it when they are young. The best thing a parent can do for their young children is to give them a good example by receiving the Sacraments devoutly and frequently. Here's a great article on helping children make a good confession. Father emphasizes obedience to parents and isn't obedience a neglected virtue today? Look how many people dissent from the authority of Holy Mother Church! They consider their dissent bold and virtuous which illustrates that sin darkens the intellect, i.e., it makes you stupid.

Let's all examine our consciences and see where we are disobedient to the rightful authority in our lives. It takes humility to be obedient and Jesus showed us that humility by making himself subordinate to His own creation. O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.
