Remembering Fathers Around the World

Happy Father's Day‘Tis that time of year again, to take a moment from our busy schedules to appreciate the men in our lives who are our mentors, guardians, and fathers. Wherever they may be in this world, we wish them a Happy Father’s Day, and say a prayer for their well-being…

God our Father, We give you thanks and praise for fathers young and old.

We pray for young fathers, newly embracing their vocation. May they find courage and perseverance to balance work, family and faith in joy and sacrifice.

We pray for Fathers around the world whose children are lost or suffering; May they know that the God of compassion walks with them in their sorrow.

We pray for men who are not fathers but still mentor and guide us with fatherly love and advice.

We remember fathers, grandfathers, and great grandfathers who are no longer with us but who live forever in our memory and nourish us with their love.

Amen
