Chapter 7: Perception Is Reality, Trading tradition for trend.
Perception forms our sense of reality. In this chapter, we look at how false perceptions are formed for those living in and of this world and how these engender false realities that firmly place wedges between the Church and its members. We see how the desire for instant gratification, aroused by cultural trends, leads the misguided away from their foundation of faith and from the fullness of truth that is seen clearly only through God’s grace. Fathers must become competent to the fact that continuously exposing their families to false perceptions of truth will have consequences revealed in future generations who do not share in the foundation of faith nurtured into the will of the family through the sacraments and the holy sacrifice of the Mass. As fathers, we need to take time out to identify and focus on the competencies and intent needed to nurture our families on these facts.
