In order to defend your faith please study and understand it. Ask the Holy Spirit to aid you in defending it. This is our responsibility to God in whatever vocation he has called us to. Parents this is our primary responsibility. We will stand before God one day and in his love he will ask us: “Did you lead and love my sheep.” Let us answer “yes’.
Do not look forward in fear to the changes of life;
Rather look to them with full hope that as they arise.
God, whose very own you are, will lead you safely
through all things.
And when you cannot stand it, God will carry you
in His arms.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
The same everlasting Father who cares for you today
will take care of you today and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering or will give you
unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace and pit aside all anxious thoughts and
~St. Francis de Sales~

When Love tests people
in order to help them grow in spirit,
they will go through storms of pain,
followed by reconciliation
and calm weather.
You can always tell when someone is spiritually weathered
because this person boldly shouts,
“Love, I am all yours!
Only you can make me happy!
Gracious Love, be mine!”
~Hadewijch, Poems in Stanzas~
