Thought for the Day

"So, with this in mind, and realizing the nobility of our soul, let us be guilty of no behavior unworthy of it nor defile it with unfitting actions, subjecting it to the thrall of the flesh and showing so little appreciation and regard for what is so noble and endowed with such preeminence. After all, because of the soul's being, we who are intertwined with a body can, if we wish and under the influence of God's grace, strive against disembodied powers, can walk on earth as though coursing across heaven, and pass our lives in this manner, suffering no inferiority."  -- St. John Chrysostom
Happy Father's Day
Happy Father's Day

 

In many homes this week, families were faced with a similar dilemma:  What shall we buy Dad for Father's Day?  Fathers never seem to need or want anything!  May we suggest, however, three priceless items that EVERY father is sure to cherish?

RESPECT is the first gift we can give.  Many a child has ultimately come to the same conclusion that the famous author Mark Twain once reached:  THE OLDER WE GET, THE WISER OUR FATHERS BECOME!  Unfortunately, children in their formative years of development often show little respect for their father's wishes, failing to recognize the wisdom that comes from years of worldly experience.

UNDERSTANDING is the next gift we might consider for our fathers this year.  While young people often lament a father's seeming lack of understanding of their point of view, it should be noted that children rarely show consideration for the reasons behind dad's directives and actions.  Raising children is an enormous responsibility, and the youngsters who are able to understand that the rules and regulations set down by their father are for their well-being will find an abundance of happiness in their home life.

Finally, the gift of LOVE should be given out generously to all fathers on Father's Day.  The warmth and affection of his children is all that any father really seeks.

If the Lord has already taken your father's soul to his eternal care, say a prayer today that he will be merciful to him.  Those who are still blessed with having their father with them should vow to present them with the gifts of RESPECT, UNDERSTANDING and LOVE every day, not just on Father's Day, for this is the basis of the 5th Commandment:  Honor you Father and Mother.
