There are definite advantages to raising Catholic children. The advantages are seen in the here and now as well as in years to come. It is very possible to have young children who are content, willing and helpful; to have virtuous, prudent, and reasonable teenagers; and to have adult children who bring joy and peace during your closing years.
Children raised in virtue will have a definite head start in life. They will be trained to know, love and serve God. God's laws and the Church's laws bring peace and happiness to those who humbly and obediently obey them. These laws are a guide that keeps people from making bad decisions and painful mistakes.
