My son read this article by the huffington post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/0 ... 05697.html

He didn't talk to me about it for over a week but I noticed something strange about him. He was also less enthused to go to Church this past Sunday. He finally tells me that this isn't the first article hes read that has 'disproved' certain aspects of religion or Christianity. How do I stop him from reading things like this? How do I convince him otherrwise?

This will be a good lesson for your son to learn: that he can never, ever depend on a secular news source to publish articles on religious topics that are truthful.

The Catholic Church has named Mother Teresa a saint. The Church never does such a thing lightly. If your son wants to know anything about St. Teresa of Calcutta, he should read things written by people who are faithful.

Hi. I just wonder how your son is now. I hope he got over what he read.

Just remind him that if he is uncertain and confused with what he reads, open it up to you and have a discussion.
