Pope Francis, in a recent weekly address to pilgrims and visitors at the Vatican in August 2015, reminded parents that it’s their responsibility to teach their children how to pray.
“There are children who have not learned how to make the sign of the cross!” the Holy Father lamented. “You, mother, father! Teach your children how to pray, how to make the sign of the cross!”
In her timely book, Pray with Me: Seven Simple Ways to Pray with Your Children, Grace Mazza Urbanski, director of Children’s Ministry for the Apostleship of Prayer, gives parents practical advice on how to help children find opportunities to pray throughout the day. Using warmth, humor, and passion, Urbanski draws on personal experience to show how families are brought closer together through deeper contact with God.
