St. Josemaria Escriva on fatherhood

Right now I am reading “Opus Dei – an Ojective Look” by John Allen.  I hesitate to quote anything by John Allen because he so rarely makes citations via endnotes or footnotes.    But in the book, he tells this story, pertinent to us:

“The questioner then wanted to know what Opus Dei should do about the ‘filth’ that was coursing through the culture, in the form of sexual promiscuity, pornography, and so on.  Escriva’s advice? “First, be a good husband to your wife, and a good father to your daughters,” he said.  “Take care of your interior life.  Do that first, and think of these other things later.”

Food for thought.
