Homily for the Memorial of Saint Boniface, Bishop and Martyr
Jun 5th, 2020 by Fr. Jack
Our parents, grandparents, guardians are our primary teachers. The Church says that they are the primary teachers of the faith, and, in our school, we recognize the central teaching role of the parents.
We are formed first at home and then by teachers and friends, and supported by our worship in Church. St. Paul, in his Second Letter to Timothy, refers to this background when he says to him, “From your infancy, you have known the sacred Scriptures.” Earlier in the letter, St. Paul applauded the genuine faith of Timothy’s grandmother Lois, and his mother, Eunice. Indeed, a good example and teaching by his family prepared Timothy for his apostolic ministry late in his life.
Let us pray, today, for all young families: that they may be guided by the wisdom of the older generations and supported by our prayers and our worship together.+
