People should listen to and learn from their grandparents

People should listen to and learn from their grandparents

"But let me ask you: Do you listen to your grandparents? Do you open your hearts to the memories that your grandparents pass on? Grandparents are like the wisdom of the family, they are the wisdom of a people. And a people that does listen to grandparents is one that dies! Listen to your grandparents. [...] Like the Holy Family of Nazareth, every family is part of the history of a people; it cannot exist without the generations who have gone before it. Therefore, today we have grandparents and children. The children learn from their grandparents, from the previous generation."

MOTHER TERESA ON PARENTS DAY

MOTHER TERESA ON PARENTS DAY
Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.

Como actuamos en la Iglesia

Como actuamos en la Iglesia

La Iglesia es un lugar sagrado, reservado para el culto a Dios. El Santísimo Sacramento está en el tabernáculo y Su Presencia Real requiere de nosotros la mayor reverencia. Es por eso que, aunque no se esté celebrando la Santa Misa, el ambiente en la iglesia debe conducir a la oración y el respeto a Dios. Es más bien un lugar sagrado, diferente a todos los demás. ¡Es casa de oración! Toda nuestra actitud debe reflejar nuestra fe en la Presencia de Cristo. Tenemos la obligación moral de reflexionar sobre nuestro propio comportamiento y enseñar a nuestros hijos.

Algunas reglas en la Iglesia:
Prohibidos chicles, comidas y bebidas.
Vestir decorosamente. Evitar escotes y vestidos provocativos; evitar jeans, pantalones apretados, shorts, camisetas.
Mantener el teléfono apagado. Nunca utilizarlo en la iglesia.
Persignarse con agua bendita al entrar. Nos recuerda nuestro bautismo.
Hacer genuflexión ante el sagrario (tocar el suelo con la rodilla derecha)
Guardar silencio por respeto, para facilitar el recogimiento y la oración.

En la misa:
Saber cuándo sentarse, arrodillarse y pararse.
Participar en las oraciones y los cantos.
Cuidar de no hacer ruido con los reclinatorios al levantarlos y bajarlos.
Sentarse con postura decorosa. No acostarse en los bancos.
Enseñar a los niños a comportarse, si lloran, sacarlos tantito. No correr por la Iglesia.

Para comulgar:
Es necesario practicar la fe católica y estar en gracia de Dios para ir a comulgar.
Respetar la hora del ayuno.
