 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.
