A Father’s Day Prayer & Blessing Sep 1, 2023

Twenty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Father's day
Father's day

This Sunday we celebrate Father’s Day. It is a day for people to show their appreciation for fathers and father figures. Father figures may include stepfathers, grandfathers, fathers-in-law, guardians (eg. foster parents), and Priests, Brothers and other clergy and shepherds in our Church. We pray for all dads and for all special men in our lives. God, bless all the fathers in the world. Guide them to be good role models and loving to all their children. Help them to be a father like You are. Give them grace and patience to handle situations in a loving way.

To all the fathers in the world: we salute you and ask the Lord to bless you on this very special day! On this day, we would like to entrust you to the intercession of St. Joseph, the foster father of Our Lord, whose silent and hidden sacrifices and the gentle but firm affection and love he showed is a model to all of us!

May you all strive to be holy Christian fathers, to faithfully love, protect, sustain, strengthen, educate, correct and provide – with an authentic Christian wisdom, strong arms, resolute will and firm but gentle heart, loving and faithful in service of others.
This we ask God the Father, model of all fathers in the world, from whom all fatherhood on earth comes.

Peace and Blessings, Fr Josh
