Fathers are often the forgotten heroes of the American family, yet none would be complete without them. Thank you to all fathers for the hard work you do to support, protect and be an example to your children and grandchildren. Thank you, above all, for accepting your role as father – a difficult task in our society which belittles the vocation through rampant abortion on demand.
Of course none of us would be here at all without our Father God who created us to be his children and share in the inheritance of his Kingdom in Heaven. Therefore with confidence we cry, “Abba, Father!” and pray:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven! Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever. AMEN!
