“O God of my ancestors and Lord of mercy, 

who have made all things by your word,  and have made man and woman
to have dominion over the creatures you have made,
and pronounce judgment in uprightness of soul, give me the wisdom that sits by your throne and do not reject me from among your servants. For I am one who is weak and short-lived, with little understanding of judgment and laws; and without the wisdom that comes from you I am nothing.   from Wisdom 9

Elizabeth O’Shea, parenting expert, writes: 

“Are you a grandparent? Your grandchildren are growing up in a different world. They are under pressure to be good at school and sports, to be popular, to fit in, and to look good. So how can you help your grandchildren cope with inevitable failure or disappointments? When can failure be good for them? What impact might failure have on their mental health? How can you help grandchildren bounce back, and improve their resilience? How can you help them deal with change? What can you do if your grandchild has a victim mentality? What if your grandchild is a perfectionist? Or has body-image issues? How can you show unconditional love, and how can your Catholic faith help? Come along to explore the answers in this fun, practical and spiritual day just for grandparents. Led by Fr Stephen Ortiger and Elizabeth O’Shea.”
