Vatican City, Nov 28, 2012 / 10:53 am
Sharing the faith with children and others should be done in a joyful, clear and simple manner, Pope Benedict said at the Wednesday general audience.
"In our time, a special place to talk about God is the family, the first school to communicate the faith to new generations," Pope Benedict said Nov. 28 in the Vatican's Paul VI Hall.
He delivered his remarks, which are part of an ongoing weekly series on faith, to thousands of pilgrims who were gathered in the hall.
"The Second Vatican Council," he noted, "speaks of parents as the first messengers of God, called to rediscover their mission, taking responsibility in educating."
