in your wisdom and love you made all things.

Bless these fathers, who have taken upon themselves

the responsibility of parenting.

Bless those who have lost a spouse to death…or divorce

who are parenting their children alone.

Strengthen them by your love that they may become

the loving, caring persons they are meant to be.

We remember our fathers who have died and for the unique way they revealed for us your love.

Bless all the fathers in the world and guide them to be good role models and loving to all their children.

Give them the grace and patience to handle situations in a loving way.

Grant this through Christ our Lord.


This is the Fathers Day Blessing that was said at the end of each mass last weekend.
