Happy Father’s Day!

Father’s Day Tribute

When I think of fathers on Father’s Day, I am reminded of spiritual writer Fr. Henri Nouwen’s saying that fathers are the head of the family that holds all members together. Fathers display strength and character.

When we ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. Like St Joseph in Our Blessed Lord’s life, Fathers are such great friends and silent support.

Happy Father’s Day!

“First of all, I would like to thank you for being such a great dad to our family. You have been working so hard to provide for us, so that we get the best education and also letting for us live a very good life. You have showered us with unconditional love and also sacrificed so much to give us the best. Over the years, you have been an inspiration to me by showing me how much you have been through to support our family. To end off, thank you for being my pillar of strength, supporting me in all the decisions I make and most importantly, always doing what is best for me. On behalf of our family, we would like to say we love you with all our hearts! Once again, Happy Father’s Day to my hero and role model. May God continue to shower you with abundant blessings!”

– Lance Gamayot, CDM altar server

What Are Catholic Fathers To Do?

Father’s Day reminds us all of the critical role Catholic dads play in passing on a sense of faith that lasts a lifetime. Families should reflect on this especially in their children’s faith and character development. But it isn’t enough to simply quote the Catechism and drag their kids to church. After all, as a dad…

  1. It’s your vocation to get your families to Heaven
  2. Your children always watch and model after you
  3. Your children are God’s gift to you. The love and care you show them is your gift back to Him

We are all made for Heaven, not this world. Let’s act accordingly. As long as we live, our life is a constant struggle. Faithfulness to Christ is forged each day by an effort to make progress in virtue. Dads, remain faithful both when times are good and difficult. Let’s pray that these dads live their faith boldly and share that faith by means of a heart-to-heart connection with all their loved ones.
