A guest commentary from our friend Clare - Especially interested in you comments on this one!!
My thinking goes something like this: it seems to me there is a catch-22 between the breakdown of the family and the breakdown of faith in modern society. It's hard to say which came first, but it does seem that conversely, the reconstruction of either one would lead to the reconstruction of the other.
Since children have grown up in broken families, without anyone really knowing or loving them, it only makes sense that they would have a hard time understanding the filial love of the Father or feeling any real obligation to reciprocate that love in some way.
The thought of it kinda makes me want to strap my 10-month-old on right now!"
