Sadly, there are many children who grow up today with no father in the home. Some may not even know their fathers at all. A father is a vital and necessary part of every family. Look no further than the example of God the Father choosing St. Joseph to be Jesus' foster-father on earth to realize how true that is. Let us ask St. Jospeh to pray for all fathers - that those who have embraced their role as the paternal head of the family will raise their children in accordance with God's will, and that those who have abdicated their responsibilities will realize the gift God has bestowed on them and turn to Him for strength to do what is expected of them.
