Fathers day and Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Toady is father's day. I offer a prayer to St. Joseph for the protection and guidance of all fathers. And I wish my father-in-law a happy and blessed day. In all honesty, I think he is a great father. And I think my mother-in-law is a great mother. My wife agrees.

At church yesterday it struck me that since father's day falls on the feast of the body and blood of Christ...just how special it is to think that on this day we see a gift from our divine Father that is beyond compare.

The Body and Blood of Christ. Offered freely to us.

It is today, another call to wonder. It is another call to humility. It is another proof of the love of God.

The feast of the greatest gift of love, falls on a day to honor our fathers. And as always, the Lord says to us..."Love Me. I will always love you. I will always be faithful. No matter what you give to Me, I give my whole self to you."

The model of fatherhood. The loving Lord. And when fatherhood is done right, this comes out. When we look at parents and say, "They are great parents." It is this model they reflect. They reflect it to each other. And they reflect it to their children.

I say again. My in-laws are great parents.

May the Lord bless and keep them.
