The Little Way for Parents of Little Ones: Modeling Your Catholic Faith in Little Ways … Inspired by ‘The Little Way’ of St. Therese of Lisieux will give you manageable and tangible ways to pass on the Catholic faith to your small children. Saint Therese of Lisiuex, in her infinite wisdom and gentle humility, taught of ‘The Little Way’. She said that we can get to Heaven by acting out of great love in every little thing we do. Saint Mother Teresa of Kolkata furthered this message by saying that “not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love”.
In the busyness of everyday modern life, how many times do we say, ‘I’ll go to Mass next week instead’, ‘I’ll start praying with my children tomorrow’, ‘I’ll read more about my faith when I’m not so tired’? If we break down the monumental duty of passing on our Catholic faith to our children into many small, manageable tasks – each that we do with great love – then all of a sudden we become much more willing and able to tackle the all-important job of passing on the faith.
The Catholic Church reminds us that “parents are the primary educators of children” …. not schools, teachers, churches, religious education programs, grandparents, etc. These organizations and people provide invaluable supplementation but our faith must be lived, modeled, and taught primarily in the home, by the parents. The Little Way for Parents of Little Ones will show you how.
Perhaps the best part of this book is the invaluable user-friendly resource guide in the back of the book … it will tell you where to get all the toys, movies, books, etc. for your little ones to enhance their faith lives.

“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.” – Saint Thomas Aquinas
