Why The World Needs Fathers

by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday June 20, 2021

In the chaos of the world, fathers play a pivotal roll. When the storms rage, as we see in the Gospel reading, true godly men, like our Lord remain unbothered, even to the point of taking a lovely nap: "A violent squall came up and waves were breaking over the boat,
so that it was already filling up. Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion."
(Cf. Mark 4:35-36) How so? Because Christ is our example and guide. Not the world. Christ is our foundation; not more money, honor, power, or pleasure.
