Tagbilaran Bishop Abet Uy challenged parents to bring their children closer to Jesus during the Sunday’s feast of the Infant Jesus, January 17, 2021.

“The greatest gift that parents can give to their children is to bring them to Jesus, to introduce them to God, and to help them understand His love for each of them,” Bishop Uy said in his homily at the St. Joseph Cathedral on Sunday while the country is celebrating the feast of the Sto. Niño.

A little pampering is good, but too much it can be very harmful. Why? Pampering can make your child weak, dependent, forever immature and irresponsible.

He said the image of the Infant Jesus is connected with our history since the onset of evangelization of our Country in 1521.

He said today’s feast reminds us to be welcoming of children as Jesus was.

Bishop Uy also challenged parents to not pamper children.

“A little pampering is good, but too much it can be very harmful. Why? Pampering can make your child weak, dependent, forever immature and irresponsible,” he said.

Amid the pandemic, Roman Catholics from different parts of the country celebrate today, the Feast of the Santo Sto. Niño.
