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.
