Your weekly Journey of Faith reflection

"The LORD, your God, who goes before you, is the one who will fight for you, just as he acted with you before your very eyes in Egypt, as well as in the wilderness, where you saw how the LORD, your God, carried you, as one carries his own child, all along your journey until you arrived at this place."​

Deuteronomy 1:29-31
Dear Deacon Nguyen,

Happy Father's Day!
The call to participate in God's creating, engendering, protecting and fostering of life is an incredible gift that calls us beyond ourselves. I imagine that every father feels overwhelmed by the immensity of the task that he faces. But I also imagine that he experiences strong emotions of awe, wonder and joy.

Being a father or mother is about cultivating life and helping to create the future; it is about participating in God's ongoing love affair with all of creation. What a marvelous privilege!

Even as we accept this mission with the best of intentions, it is still possible to get stuck in ourselves. In either the role of spiritual, biological, adoptive or foster father, it is very easy to become self-referential, to get caught up in our own desires and needs, and to lose sight of the vocation of giving totally of ourselves to give life to another. Parents face this reality as they struggle to support and protect their children. Those of us without children face this reality when we are struck by how far short we fall in our call to reach out to and serve others.

Prayer for Father's Day​

The world may be the only classroom most children have; adults, their only textbook. And what they see and hear and learn along the way will shape their thoughts, color their words and season their actions. Each unselfish act of kindness, justice and compassion echoes the teachings of Christ. Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations, you who have learned from childhood what "Our Father" means.

Amen.

~ Father Joseph R. Veneroso, M.M.
Dinh, we are all called to foster life, to join God in fathering and creating the future. As we celebrate and meditate on the life-giving and protective role that we are all called to, let us thank God for this privilege and commit ourselves to cultivating and protecting all life.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Raymond J. Finch, M.M.
