The Pastor’s Perspective

Happy Father’s Day!!! Given the current cultural trends in which we live whereby everything is up for reinterpretation these days, it’s worth taking the time to remind ourselves of the precious gift that comes to us from heaven above in the existence of family life and the respective roles that give rise to such an experience. Growing up I’ll always remember how the presence, the words, and the example of my father played an irreplaceable and imperative role at home. His fatherhood always served as a stabilizing force against the pressures of society, threats to our family, and especially for the well-being and protection of my mother – a truth that became ever more apparent, and never to be replaced, following his death.

To be an earthly father is to take up the responsibility of emanating attributes of God the Father within the context of family life. It is a father’s mission — the challenge that brings out the best in him — to form in his children the attributes they’ll need to succeed in life, to strengthen them so they in turn can later protect themselves and their own loved ones. Never underestimate the impact that a great father has upon the lives of those he treasures within his heart. Whatever you teach and however you lead, will long be remembered by your children after they’ve left home for good. In short, a great father never stops being a father! For even after he passes from this life to receive his eternal reward, he continues to live on as a great man in the hearts of his children.

Lifting all you father’s in prayer.
Peace, Fr. Jerome
