Happy Father’s Day

It was nice to get kisses from my daughter today in church.  I lost count how many she gave me.  I’m not a perfect Dad and I admit it, but I still get kisses anyway.  Fatherhood can be the most wonderful thing a man can experience, especially when we fathers love our children.  Sometimes we fail. We all  have our shortcomings but we are blessed we have a Father in heaven who redeems and gifts us with mercy when we do fail.  St. John Chrysostom said: “God loves us more than a father, mother, friend, or any else could love, and even more than we are able to love ourselves.”  When we follow God who loves us with a perfect love, He gives us fathers a fresh start every day.  Happy Father’s Day!
