Just Remember

If your daughter says that she wants to go to Mass because she wants to receive Communion again, and your heart swells up with gladness, take her to Mass.  When you take her to Mass but the other kids have an extremely hard time behaving well, remember that Jesus said to let the children come to Him and that it is to such as these that the Kingdom of Heaven belongs.

If you hear a voice in your head saying,  “Your kids can’t behave in Church so you shouldn’t have come” or “You knew the kids were tired. This was not a good idea today” … that is not Jesus. Jesus doesn’t say things like that. Jesus says “Come.”

The enemy wants nothing more than to keep you from Jesus. He is the one that whispers lies that make you doubt yourself and the goodness of God. Do not listen to him. Do not despair. Jesus wants you to be with Him, crying babies and all.
