Fathers

The protectors

In honor of Father’s Day being last Sunday I just want to talk about Dad’s. All dad’s, including future dads, spiritual dads, old dads, young dads, priests, all of them.

Looking into the book of Genesis we know men are called to protect. I’ll never know what it’s like to be a dad, but I can tell you what it’s like to know and be loved by amazing Dads, especially our Heavenly Father.

On Sunday Andrew, Anthony, and I sat around a table talking about our Dads and  how they have lived out their vocation of the Fatherhood. I talked about how my dad has always made his daughters feel protected and beautiful. He raised daughters that understood the dignity and respect they deserve, and through his little words has shown us the importance of protecting woman and the unborn.

Andrew talked about his Dad going to jail for operation rescue and how proud he was of his Dad and his efforts to protect the unborn. Anthony talked about how his dad was always willing to stand up for what was right and protect his family. All three of us talked about how hard our fathers worked and what a joy it was to see dad come home from work growing up. To all our Dads out there thank you for raising up a pro life generation.

Before I wrap this up I also want to thank all the men we’ve met along the way, especially Lawrence from the nurturing center, and Edward Garcia who run their own ministries and have saved lives.

I’m also grateful for every priest we’ve encountered along the way who has graced us with the sacraments, their blessings, and prayers.

Lastly, I pray that all you men protect the women in your lives and support them through difficult times, and help them to chose life.

PS Dad if you’re reading this I love you!
