Prayer of the Week:
PRAYER FOR ALL THE DADS
Lord, today we remember and pray for all the dads who, with their wives, share the vocation to cooperate in the ongoing work of creation. May they be faithful, respectful and loving husbands to their wives and the mothers of their children. May they always have ears to hear and listen respectfully to what their wives are really saying. May they be patient, kind, gentle but firm, understanding and generous with their children. May they be committed to their co-workers’ well-being, to peace and the betterment of society and the environment. Lord, please help all fathers to be good and decent human beings, truly capable of imitating your great love for all creation. May Saint Gerard be always an example worthy of imitation, especially in his seeking to do God’s will in all things. Amen.
Welcome, Friend of Saint Gerard!
In Christ our Redeemer,
Fr. Allan Weinert, C.Ss.R.
