Today is a day to share your story about the father-figures in your life. Tell us about the men in your life you want to lift up, pray for, and give thanks for making you the women and men you are today.
As you do so, we invite you to remember the words of Pope Francis about fatherhood: “To be a good father, the first requirement is to be present in the family. To be close to his spouse, to share in everything, joy and pain, burdens and hopes. And to be close to the children as they grow: when they play and when they make efforts, when they are carefree and when they are distressed, when they dare and when they are afraid, when they make missteps and when they return to the right path. A father must always be present."
