I really enjoyed this series, so may Holy habits to get in to: praying the Rosary, attending daily Mass and always sharing a meal, with open spiritual discussions with all family members! Dr. Pitre shared his personal ups & downs, and how they (his family) got thru it! Daily Mass may not make your day perfect, but it sure gives u the strength to cope with whatever the day holds for u! Thank u Dr Pitre for helping to make everyday life easier to get thru! Blessings
Seeking Holiness in Family Life
I've listened to numerous CD from Dr. Pitre and never disappointed. He is such a powerful & passionate speaker which I feel connected as a listener.
Insightful, funny and challenging. This is a great presentation and I will be listening to it again, but with my wife next time.
I️ cannot begin to tell you how much this has deepened my faith life and has changed the way I live. Dr. Pitre gives tremendous insight in how God reveals His identify, plan and desire for how we should live according to Sacred scripture. Praise be to God for all He has planned for us and how He equips is on our journey.

Every single Christian is called to holiness. But what does holiness look like in family life? Is it really possible for a father, a mother, or children to be saints in the home? What does the Bible say? In this important new series, Dr. Brant Pitre explores 'seven pillars' of Christian family life:
(1) Openness to Life
(2) Holy Mass and Sunday Rest
(3) Family Prayer
(4) Sacred Scripture
(5) Daily Work
(6) Forgiveness and Reconciliation
(7) Redemptive Suffering
Drawing on Sacred Scripture and the teaching of the Popes, Dr. Pitre takes you on a guided tour of what Scripture and the Church have to say about contraception, the importance of Sunday rest in family life, how to pray as a family, the role of the Bible in the home, the value of daily labor, practical advice on reconciliation and forgiveness, and the central place of suffering in what Pope Francis has called the "daily martyrdom of family life." Along the way, Dr. Pitre shares his own personal experiences and stories of trying to live as a Christian family in the modern world.
If you've ever wondered what Scripture teaches about family life or if you know any young families seeking to grow in holiness, then this Bible study is for you.
