ROME, May 27, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – As the battle for the very soul of the family and all its members intensifies around the world with the push for sexual anarchy veiled as “education,” the undermining of what is truly masculine and feminine in the name of “gender rights,” and the destruction of marriage masquerading as “equality,” a spiritual leader who has suffered under the terror of a communist regime has laid out a survival plan for Catholic parents who find themselves in a secular, relativistic, and hostile environment but who simply want to raise their children to become future citizens of heaven.

Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Kazakhstan told LifeSiteNews in an exclusive interview earlier this month that Catholic parents must take seriously their “first duty” of raising their children in the faith if their children are to overcome the negative and even hostile influences that are pressing in from all sides and seeking to destroy.

In a wide-ranging interview that covered his experience as a Catholic boy growing up under communism, his thoughts on what it means to be a Catholic family today, his thoughts on education, bad parishes and dioceses run by agenda-driven priests and bishops, as well as his views on how faithful laity should address concerns about Pope Francis, the bishop laid out twelve steps that he said Catholic parents must take to safeguard their families and their children.

Bishop Schneider said that to survive in a heretical wasteland, Catholic parents must:

See persecution as a grace from God for becoming purified and strengthened, not simply as something negative.
Become rooted yourself in the Catholic faith through study of the Catechism.
Protect your family’s integrity above all else.
Catechize your children as your first duty.
Pray with your children daily, such as litanies and the Rosary.
Turn your home into a domestic church.
In the absence of a priest and Sunday Mass, make spiritual communion.
Withdraw your family from a parish spreading error and attend a faithful parish, even if you have to travel far.
Withdraw your children from school if they are encountering immoral danger in sex-ed.
If you cannot withdraw your children, establish a coalition of parents to fight for that right.
Fight for parental rights using available democratic tools.
Be prepared for persecution in protecting your children (see first point).
The bishop said that being a Catholic “family” in the truest sense of the word is the key to survival.
