The idea of honoring mothers comes naturally enough because the very concept of motherhood is so honorable and because mothers are themselves so lovable.
When Joseph or Mary told the child Jesus something, He listened to them. They stood in the place of God. Parents can make Saints by imitating Mary and Joseph and creating a virtuous household. They must keep out immodest clothes and all forms of materialism and luxury, employing prayer and penance. They must ban bad books, bad television, and bad magazines. Habitual prayer, especially as a family, is the most important thing for creating a virtuous Christian home.
