I get a daily email from Father Ron Rolheiser, priest and writer, whose column sometimes appears in The Catholic Moment, the newspaper of the Lafayette Diocese. Loved this quote in a recent email newsletter from him. It’s especially compelling for parents :):
“It is safe to trust, to let our loved ones be free, because a power beyond us loves them more than we do and ultimately takes care of their safety.”
As a parent of young boys, I don’t have to worry about letting them be free quite yet, but that day does give me pause. I can’t imagine sending them off on their own!
