THE PADRE'S PORTION 

Dear Brothers and Sisters; This is the time of the year when we celebrate Fathers’ Day. What a great day to celebrate! But, what do we celebrate? Is the day to give Thanks for that person who is our biological father? Or, is it for the person who fills the shoes of our biological father; maybe a step father or a grandfather? What are the blessings of life that we receive from them? This is where we need to recall the word ‘fatherhood’. When a person lives the qualities of fatherhood, then we can most easily think of them as a ‘father’. The first time the Bible uses the word ‘father’ is in Gen 2:24. For the Lord’s Prayer, we also know it as the Our Father. It has become more difficult to learn from our culture what fatherhood means. If we look at the father figure in TV or the movies, we have developed a very poor image of what a virtuous father truly is. Many times he is made fun of. Or, other experts dwarf his abilities. [Honey, you can’t fix that! - declares the wife] Let us not despair. God Is Our Father; and as Father, He loves us !!!                                                                                                      Fr. David Tate
