A Loving and Gentle Father

One of the things that I am most grateful for in my life is that I have lived into my fifties and still have my father and mother and they continue to be happy and healthy. There is no doubt in my mind that the older I get, the more I appreciate all that they have done for me. Since they have been together for as long as I have been alive, it is impossible for me to think of them as separate. They are and always have been for me simply “my parents.” So much do I think of them as one, that I sometimes find it odd when I tell people that I am going to visit my parents and certain people respond by saying, “Oh, you are going to visit your mommy.” It always makes me wonder what kind of relationship they had with their parents and I always make a point of saying, “no, I am going to visit my father and my mother.” Both my father and my mother have always been there for me and have always supported me with their love.

Living the Gospel by helping youth rebuild their lives

Sarah couldn’t get along with her mother, so she tried living on the streets at age 14. She hitchhiked to Toronto to move in with her cousin, who soon kicked her out. Having no place to go, Sarah decided to try Sancta Maria House. She initially hated the structure and rules. However, the supportive staff won her trust and helped her return to school. At the end of her stay, she restored her relationship with her mother. ShareLife-funded agencies like Sancta Maria House are helping at-risk youth turn their lives around.
