This comes from the April 2009 issue of U.S. Catholic in an interview with Sean P. Reynolds, Director of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry:
The hope is that faith is so much a part of your life that you can't help but bring it up at the dinner table. You end up talking about what happened in the news or praying for people who are sick and hurting.
What would it be like for your sons and daughters if, instead of hearing the "Today Show" when they wake up in the morning, it was quiet and you were sitting on the couch with a candle lit and scripture in your lap, meditating?
What would it be like if your son or daughter saw you doing Christian service regularly and not just because you have to as a parent to get your kid there?
I call it living faith out loud. Not letting it be a secret, but living it openly at home so your young people catch it, learn it, ask about, grow in it. That's how faith gets in them.
