Thanks to Lydia for the link to a recent talk by Pope Benedict in which he gives a wonderful exhortation about the role of the family in catechesis of children: The Christian family has always been the first way of transmitting the faith and still today retains great possibilities for evangelization in many areas.

I’m guest posting today at Barefoot and Pregnant, answering some questions Calah asked about catechesis of pre-schoolers: “How Do You Do That?” (The first of a three-part series.) Come by and say hi.
