"Children are a gift in a myriad of ways. They bring joy even in the midst of heartaches; they give added direction to the lives of their parents. Children, who are the fruit of love and meaningful commitment, are a cause of love and meaning."—USCCB, 2009 pastoral letter Marriage: Love and Life in the Divine Plan
Below are some resources offered by the USCCB for and about children. Visit also the Parents and Parenting page.
The short video "Made for Life" fosters reflection on the incredible gift that each and every child is to his or her parents, to the Church, and to all of society. Find out more in the "Made for Life" Viewer's Guide and Resource Booklet, and by reading FAQs on the gift of children.
