Description

This Father’s Day weekend, as I watch the smiling eyes of our grandchildren, I will wish my Dad were with us to enjoy these precious moments. When my wife and I are with our own children and grandchildren, we tell the stories of our fathers with fondness and ever deepening gratitude. My father grew in tenderness and compassion as he faced death. It is funny how difficulties and struggle, suffering and strife, seem to be the most effective means of refining us all. He finally died of the heart ailment which had claimed so much of his vigor. However, like every struggle my father faced, he did not give up. He was a fighter and he did not want to go. In fact, I was at his death bed a couple of times, or so we thought it was his death bed. He decided he had more jokes to tell and more love to give. It was that fighting spirit which I have particularly grown to admire as the years have passed by. Thank God, he passed it on to me. Oh, as a younger man, he perhaps fought some of the wrong battles. I know I certainly did. We all do. But, that does not really matter any longer, in the light of eternity. My Father died in a state of grace. In fact, I had the privilege of giving him the Body and Blood of Jesus at the first Mass I served as a Deacon. On my way out of the Church, he looked up from his wheel chair and asked for my first blessing.I wept. Beloved Father, through the life, death and resurrection of your only begotten Son, Jesus the Christ, we have become your adopted sons and daughters. Through Baptism we are now members of His Body, the Church, which is family. Our Savior Jesus taught us that “whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother.” We thank you that promise includes each one of us. As members of the family of Jesus we now turn to you in prayer, as OUR FATHER, ABBA. In Luke’s Gospel, we read that Jesus responded to a question posed by His disciples: Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples. He said to them, - When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name, your Kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread and forgive us our sins for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us, and do not subject us to the final test. (Luke 11:1-4) From His response, we learn the prayer we were taught as children, the Our Father. However, Jesus is revealing a framework for our living in a constant communion with the Father. Christian prayer is living in an ongoing communion with the Father, who communicates Himself to us completely in His Son. When we live in this communion, life becomes a classroom where we learn the truth about who we are in Jesus. Through prayer, we receive new glasses through which to see the landscape of life. Darkness is dispelled by the light of the Holy Spirit. We may stumble and even, at times, fall back into living at odds with God's plan. However, through prayer we find the Way back home to the Father. Through prayer, we begin to comprehend what it means to be partakers of the divine nature. (2 Peter 1:4) Our life becomes a participation in the inner life of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Though that participation will only be complete when we are with Him in the fullness of His embrace - in Resurrected Bodies in a New Heaven and a New Earth - it begins even now - through prayer. Today, we pray Dear Father, Abba, for all our earthly fathers: For our Grandfathers and our Great grandfathersFor Adoptive fathersFor Expectant fathersFor Foster FathersFor StepfathersFor all Spiritual fathers Watch over them all, give them the grace they need to be faithful to their vocation. By the power of the Holy Spirit, equip them to manifest your love to the men and women of this increasingly fatherless age Men and women who desperately need to find you as their Heavenly Father and take their place in the Family of God, the Church of Your Beloved Son. Now Dear Father, I specifically bring to you now my own personal intention: [ADD YOUR SPECIFIC INTENTION HERE] To learn more about this Novena: http://www.catholic.org/prayers/noven...
