Catechetical Sunday – Parents as First Teachers

The inherent authority of parents is holistic. And the parent cannot pick and choose what part of that authority with the attendant duty to own or not. As we mark catechetical week, I intend to reflect on the parent as first teacher of the child. In blessing the man and woman to be fruitful and multiply (Gen 1:28) God empowers parents with the authority and wisdom to nurture, guide, direct, and instruct the child. That is why the word of God calls on parents to “train the young in the way they should go; even when old they will not swerve from it.” (Proverbs 22:6).
Parents who carry out this duty of instructing, teaching or catechizing must be commended. And that is what we do on this catechetical Sunday and week. It is to show how grateful we are to our catechists and especially parents and guardians who have relentlessly give their all in educating their children in the ways of God and his church. We know what this means because most of us are beneficiaries of the role our parents played in bringing us to the knowledge of God. We thank you dear parents. Further, it is in recognition of this that the church has declared long ago that the family is the domestic church and par-ents are the first teachers.
However, it is a natural principle and a legal maxim that you cannot give what you don’t have (Nemo dat quod non habet). For parents to give the best religious education right from home, they must necessarily be equipped with the knowledge of God as contained in Scriptures and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. However, with my little experience and interaction with some parents of my age and below, especially some of those who come to have their babies baptized, it is apparent that something is lacking. And that is, the wealth of knowledge about God and the church expected of parents who are to bring up children in the ways of God and the Church. Some have difficulty recalling basic knowledge of the sacraments and the reason to form a personal relation-ship with Jesus Christ. The question is, how will parents tell the child the im-portance of going to Mass, if they don’t know its importance and centrality of the Mass to our catholic faith, or worse attend and participate at Mass? How will they tell the child the rewards of being generous to God and others if they are not generous to God and his church or know the importance of that? These questions are further justified when parents and children, after receiving the sacraments fail, refuse or ignore attending Mass and other Church activities.
Parents should remember that God requires them to bring up their children to know him, love him, serve him, so as to be happy with him now and forever. Thanks to parents who have taken this obligation seriously and have devoted so much of their time to teach their children in the ways of God, and by their example are encouraging their children to practice the faith.
• We would invite parents, guardians, catechists for special blessing at the end of Mass.
• All are welcome to the Parish Picnic after the 10:30 am Mass at the Lincoln Park, Harbor Beach.
• I will be taking some days for my vacation. I will be gone from the 17th to the 27th of September. The priests from Cass City, Frs. Adam Maher and Theodore Nnagubo will assist us with Mass on the Weekend of September 22 and 23.
• I thank one of our parishioners, who wants to remain anonymous, for funding the purchase of new microphone set and some maintenance work done on the public address system at OLLH Church. Thank You and God reward you most abundantly.
