EWTN Catholic Q&A
Response to "Correcting Others"
Question from David on 03-01-2013:

Dr. Geraghty is correct in that you are assuming the parental role and as such set the rules. Our son is getting ready to be an exchange student and one of the rules is he must obey the rules of the family he will live with. Since your student is Catholic like you I feel you have the obligation to explain the wrongs of missing a holy day of obligation, neglecting confession, etc. and from now on the student WILL be attending with you.

Dear David,

Thank you for your note.

Dr. Geraghty
