Many blessings on all fathers this day, a day we pause, pray for and honor all the outstanding Dad's out there! We pray for those especially in this age when raising children is not all that easy and a day when the family is under attack and marriage is being re-defined.
In these times of moral confusion we need be aware and courageous in standing up for the truth, both in word and deed. You may be interested in an article posted at Catholic Online entitled, "Fathers are Guardians of the Family" which addresses the morphing of fatherhood and masculinity.
My father has entered into eternity thirteen years ago already. I have fond memories of fishing, camping and hunting and his strong but gentle demeanor. By the grace of God, our Heavenly Father, I await reunion with him some day where "no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him" (1 Cor. 2:9).
May God bless our fathers abundantly! St Joseph, Guardian of the Redeemer, pray for us!
