Father's Day | 2017

Saint Joseph with the Christ Child

A father's love reflects something of the infinite perfection of God. Like Joseph, who humbly accepted his role as guardian, husband and father in the Holy Family, a father should protect and provide. May fathers everywhere recognize their divine calling as models of selflessness love in their families and the world.

Prayer for Fathers

God our Father, you govern and protect your people and shepherd them with a father’s love. You place a father in a family as a sign of your enduring love and constant protection. May fathers everywhere be faithful to the example shown in the Scriptures: steadfast in love, forgiving and sustaining forces in their families by caring for those in need. Grant wisdom to fathers so that they may encourage and guide their children. Guide every father with the Spirit of your love that they may increase in holiness and draw their family ever closer to you. Amen.

Happy Father's Day to all Fathers.
