How many parents feel frustrated in their role as their children’s primary educators, feeling they don’t know enough about their faith themselves. This book is based on the premise that God made each of us with an intuitive knowledge of him which can be accessed through ordinary means. It explores ways in which God and an understanding of him can be found in ordinary experience- attendance at Mass, conversations with friends and relatives, radio and TV, books and magazines, the example of others, etc. It also provide additional catechesis in the following areas: the sacraments (both in general and individually), the Mass, prayer, the Bible, morality, social justice, stewardship, Mary and the saints, signs and miracles, and death and the afterlife. It is the author’s hope that the many examples in this book will lead its readers to strengthen their own intuitive knowledge of God and come to find him in ways they may never previously have imagined.
