“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower.” (John 15:1)
As parents we must prune from ourselves those things that do not move us forward so that we can be good examples for our children.
For many children are the fruit we bear, children are what the Church calls the fruit of a marriage. But I think what is more important is not how many children we have but how well we are living our lives so we can be the best Prophet, first teacher of our children. There is an Irish proverb that says that the Child does what he sees!
