The sins of the father

Fr. V has a wonderful post that I think expands even beyond the point he originally was trying to make. In it, he extrapolates on one of the ways the sins of a father are visited on his sons – in this case, inadvertent contact with pornography. The truth of the post though is much larger than that. What we do in any and every way affects our children and we as parents always have a singular choice – do we help lead them to salvation or do we help lead them down the roads of perdition.

So the next time you’re tempted to cut a corner somehow, to take a “shortcut” in the spiritual life, remember that it’s not just God who’s watching you, but your sons and daughters as well. It’s your example they’ll follow; it’s your choice which direction you point them, at all times.
