Men who are fathers

Men who take fatherhood seriously are giving to others.  Now, the concept of "giving " cannot refer to anything.  It indicates that he who gives and they who receive are united; uniquely cemented for life. 

Today, I reflect on my life as a father and the seriousness required to be a father. 

As a result, I pray for young fathers, newly embracing their gift; may they find courage and perseverance to balance work, family, and faith in joy and sacrifice.  I pray for fathers around the world whose children are lost or suffering; may they know the gift of God's compassion who walks with them in their sorrow. I pray for men who are not fathers but still mentor and guide children with fatherly love and advice. Finally, I remember all grandfathers and great grandfathers that have reunited with our Lord in heaven.  I hope to be united with all my forefathers one day.
