FAMILY FAITH FORMATION TIP:  Food for thought – Robert Mulholland Jr. observes, “Every action taken, every response made, every dynamic of relationship, every thought held, every emotion allowed:  these are the minuscule arenas where, bit by bit, we are shaped into some kind of being.  Life is, by its very nature, spiritual formation.”
