From Theology of Home:
Why is celebrating the liturgical year of particular importance for you and your family?
TIERNEY: As our family started to grow, the husband and I made the decision to actively promote a family culture. We knew we wanted to make demands of ourselves and our kids that were far beyond current cultural norms as far as morals, sacrifice, service, obedience, etc. But we realized that JUST expectations and demands were an incomplete picture of what Catholicism really is. It's also joy and feasts and hilariously macabre patron saints. It is our hope that by equipping our children with both sides of our faith, it will be such a part of themselves and their days that they won't ever leave it.
