Family Glue

Cardinal  Bergoglio,now Pope Francis, uses the Spanish word, “cercania”  to describe Mary’s action in the Visitation toward Martha as creating “nearness”; we are called to shorten the distance between each other.  The Catechism says that we as parents and grandparents are primary teachers of the faith.   Pope Francis says when our lives are closer to each other, we are more likely to “catch” or pass on the faith.                                                                                                                                                            

Here are some ideas to help your family come closer together.  Try some of these activities and find a few that work well for your family dynamic.
