Are we giving our children the right tools to reach the potential we saw in their eyes on the day they were born? How do we present them with the spiritual foundation--the true security--they need to flower on this earth? Phil Catalfo tackles this monumental responsibility in a heartfelt discussion about how we, as parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, can guide our children's spiritual development at a time when we are questioning our own. As we become disenchanted with the all-too-material world in which we live, Catalfo feels we must not only foster our children's spiritual growth, but we also need to help them find a way to apply it in this world. He says, "Frankly our culture is alienating and soul-corroding, predicated principally on the pursuit of material advance, not on the pursuit of meaning and intrinsic human value." (hosted by Michael Toms)
