 Our Description

 

In Religious Customs in the Family, Fr. Weiser draws upon his memorable experiences as a little boy in Catholic Europe, as well as on his great knowledge of religious customs, to guide mothers and fathers in giving their homes a truly Catholic spirit. Such a home will profoundly help children to live and to grow in God's grace. On the other hand, if the family members are not in tune with their beautiful Catholic traditions, they undoubtedly will live according to the ways of the secular world, largely unmindful of God and of their eternal destiny.

 

Among the fascinating topics which Fr. Weiser covers briefly, but with his own sure touch, are:

  • Family Prayer
  • The Problem with Santa Claus
  • Blessing of Children
  • Baptismal Names
  • Lenten Customs
  • Name-Days
  • Easter Customs
  • Holy Water
  • All Saints' Day, All Souls' Day, Halloween
  • Advent Customs
  • Proper Observance of the Weeks Before Christmas
  • Feasts of Our Lady
  • Spiritual Approach to Baptism, Matrimony and the Other Sacraments
  • St. Nicholas 
  • Christmas Customs

Filled With surprising revelations, RELIGIOUS CUSTOMS IN THE FAMILY is an essential book every Catholic family should own and use, for it describes a way of Catholic family life that is a crucial element to passing on the Faith to one's children. This book can well make the difference between a family's being only Sunday-morning Catholics or truly Catholic people who are oriented toward Heaven every day of their lives.

Profile

    Priest. Abbot. Bishop of Myra, Lycia (modern Turkey). Generous to the poor, and special protector of the innocent and wronged. Many stories grew up around him prior to his becoming associated with Santa Claus. Some examples

        * Upon hearing that a local man had fallen on such hard times that he was planning to sell his daughters into prostitution, Nicholas went by night to the house and threw three bags of gold in through the window, saving the girls from an evil life. These three bags, gold generously given in time of trouble, became the three golden balls that indicate a pawn broker’s shop.
        * He raised to life three young boys who had been murdered and pickled in a barrel of brine to hide the crime. These stories led to his patronage of children in general, and of barrel-makers besides.
        * Induced some thieves to return their plunder. This explains his protection against theft and robbery, and his patronage of them – he’s not helping them steal, but to repent and change. In the past, thieves have been known as Saint Nicholas’ clerks or Knights of Saint Nicholas.
        * During a voyage to the Holy Lands, a fierce storm blew up, threatening the ship. He prayed about it, and the storm calmed – hence the patronage of sailors and those like dockworkers who work on the sea.
