Meditation on the Presentation

by Peggy Bowes

The Presentation:
They took him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord. (Luke 2:22)

Mary and Joseph obediently consecrated their newborn Son to the Father at the Temple in Jerusalem. They placed Him in God's hands, trusting that He would guide them in raising the Messiah. We mothers should also place our children tenderly in God's care, trusting that He will choose the best course for both all of us. We must also pray for guidance in helping our children to determine their vocation. We may have aspirations for our children's future, but it is important that we let God decide how to use them in His Divine Plan. Teach your children not only to pray but to listen to God's gentle guidance in their lives. One way to do this it to teach them to pray the Rosary. One of the Promises of the Rosary is that those who pray it will receive signal graces-- little signs to let us know if we are on the right path.

My Son A Priest?
by: Anonymous

Thank you for the meditation. It is good advise.

On a side note...

...A priest once told me that St. John Vianney is known to have said that one in every three people have a religious vocation. One in every three!

He encourages parents to guide their children to presume they have a vocation to the religious life, teaching them that if they are infact not called, it will be plain to them.

I think he meant to let your sons assume they are called to be priests until they meet that special lady. The same goes for your daughters, let them assume they will become a nun until the day they meet Mr. Right.

Pray for your children that they will follow God's Will in their lives.

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
