I ask the Father in his great glory to give you the power to be strong inwardly through his Spirit. [Ephesians 3:16]
Here is a scene repeated in Brazil thousands of times daily…
It’s early morning. Time for young Marcos to leave for school. As he gathers his books and heads for the door, he pauses by his father’s chair. As he searches his father’s face, Marcos asks, “Blessings Father?” The father raises his hand and assures his son “God bless you, my son.” Father and child part for the day, a blessing requested, a blessing willingly given.
We should do the same. Like a child longing for the father’s favor, each of us needs a daily reminder of our heavenly Father’s love.
Happy Father’s Day!!
Fr. Andrew, T.O.R.
