Educating children is a sacred duty – Photo Journal from the Presentation of Christ – part 1: vigil (Audio)

Having children is a matter of nature; but raising them and educating them in the virtues is a matter of mind and will. I am speaking of educating children’s hearts in virtue and piety—a sacred duty which cannot be transgressed. That’s why we must offer them to the Lord.

Based on St. John Chrysostom
