Happy Father’s Day!

This Sunday we celebrate Father’s Day. It is a day for people to show their appreciation for fathers and father figures. Father figures may include stepfathers, grandfathers, fathers-in-law, guardians (eg. foster parents), and Priests, Brothers and other clergy and shepherds in our Church. We pray for all dads and for all special men in our lives. God, bless all the fathers in the world. Guide them to be good role models and loving to all their children. Help them to be a father like You are. Give them grace and patience to handle situations in a loving way.

 

God took the strength of a mountain, the majesty of a tree, the warmth of a summer sun, the calm of a quiet sea, the generous soul of nature, the comforting arm of night, the wisdom of the ages, the power of the eagle’s flight, the joy of a morning in spring, the faith of a mustard seed, the patience of eternity, the depth of a family need, then God combined these qualities, when there was nothing more to add, He knew His masterpiece was complete, and so, He called it … Dad.
