The Catechism of the Catholic Church on the family as the Domestic Church:

Thus the home is the first school of Christian life and “a school for human enrichment.” Here one learns endurance and the joy of work, fraternal love, generous – even repeated – forgiveness, and above all divine worship in prayer and the offering of one’s life.

– Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1657

How can we as a family live out this call to be the Domestic Church?
