Honoring Our Fathers

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day, a day to honor our fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and others who play a fatherly role in our lives. We look up to these men for guidance, we depend on them for help, and we see in them an earthly reflection of our Heavenly Father. I invite you to join me in praying for them all, whether they are still in this life or already in the next, that God may strengthen and reward them. Let’s make our own the words of the Church’s Book of Blessings:

God our Father,

in your wisdom and love you made all things.

Bless these men,

that they may be strengthened as Christian fathers.

Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.

Grant that we, their sons and daughters,

may honor them always

with a spirit of profound respect.

Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

May the Lord bless all our fathers and father figures on their special day and always!

Gratefully Yours,
