Guarding Our Kids' Souls
A different kind of Catholic parenting book helps parents preserve children's faith

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 16, 2021 /Standard Newswire/ -- A bestselling spiritual author reveals the principles and practices of successful Catholic families in Always a Catholic, a new book from Catholic Answers Press that promises to help parents keep their kids in the Faith—or lead them back to it.

Norbertine Father Sebastian Walshe (Secrets from Heaven) saw a need to address the growing problem of raising faithful children in a faithless age. "There is no greater pain than the thought that your child may leave the Church and risk losing eternal salvation," he says, "and the evils of today's world make that risk greater than ever before."

Ultimately, a child's faith—like his salvation—is God's work. After all, God loves our children infinitely more than we ever could. But, Fr. Walshe notes, we can cooperate with God in this work, and so he draws upon his pastoral experience with Catholic families, distilling their wisdom into guidance that parents can use to help God's work bear fruit.

That wisdom includes advice related to education, family prayer, dating and sex, dealing with teenage crises, and other common issues parents encounter. However, it's not merely a topical book of do's and don'ts.

"There are a lot of how-to manuals for Catholic families," says Todd Aglialoro, director of publishing for Catholic Answers. "But Always a Catholic does more than offer 'tips and tricks'— it teaches parents to live their own faith with greater joy and fidelity, demonstrating to their kids by example that the Church is their home for life."

About the Author:
Fr. Sebastian Walshe is a Norbertine Canon of the Abbey of St. Michael in the Diocese of Orange, California. After entering the seminary, he attended the Pontifical University of St. Thomas at Rome (the Angelicum) where he received a master's in sacred theology and a doctorate in philosophy. Since 2006, Fr. Sebastian has been a professor of philosophy in the seminary program at St. Michael's Abbey, where he is currently the dean of studies.
