Tonight I opened the Diary of St. Faustina and went in search of that portion where she talks about her perpetual vows years later. I was not able to find that portion but the parts I did re-read perfectly discussed some of the struggles I was encountering today. As today is the feast of St. Faustina I felt a wonderful connection to her today and prayed for her intercession. Her diary is an abyss of spiritual answers and consolations. Each time one reads it different parts resonate.
As I was not able to find the portion of the Diary where St. Faustina discusses these graces from her perpetual vows I then turned my attention to the catechism. I searched the catechism with the words "grace from the sacrament of marriage" What I found I have included here:
2225 Through the grace of the sacrament of marriage, parents receive the responsibility and privilege of evangelizing their children. Parents should initiate their children at an early age into the mysteries of the faith of which they are the "first heralds" for their children. They should associate them from their tenderest years with the life of the Church. A wholesome family life can foster interior dispositions that are a genuine preparation for a living faith and remain a support for it throughout one's life.
