If your father is still alive and you have not yet spoken to him today, take one minute to read the prayer below and then either pick up the phone and call him or hop in the car and go visit him in-person if the distance permits. Stop reading BCI for today and send your father an eCard.
Now we offer a short prayer we liked in honor of our fathers:
Father, it is Your Commandment that we should honor our fathers;
Hear the prayers we offer You for them.
Grant them many years on earth and keep them in health of mind and body.
Bless their word and all they do.
Give them back a hundred-fold whatever they have done for us.
Inspire them with Your love and help them to fulfill Your holy law.
One day, may we be their comfort and support,
So that having enjoyed their affection on earth
We may have the joy of being with them forever in Your home in Heaven.
Through Christ our Lord.
Happy Fathers Day to all fathers. Have a blessed day!
