Father's Day Novena

18E5FD Fathers Day CD1 5 2 18 1 3FL

Dear Friend of the Sacred Heart,

May God our Father, who has loved us, encourage your hearts and strengthen them in every good deed and word. - 2 Thessalonians 2: 16-17

What a beautiful prayer for fathers everywhere!

Imagine a world where all fathers imitated their heavenly Father, loving their children without reservation, encouraging them in all their endeavors and being examples of how to follow Christ in their lives!

Please join me, and the Priests of the Sacred Heart, in praying for all those who have been called to fatherhood. Let us pray that our Father in heaven will bless them with the grace they need to be great fathers as they follow His example “in every good deed and word.”

In more than 40 countries, The Priests of the Sacred Heart minister to fathers who struggle and sacrifice. Just meeting basic daily needs is often a challenge. Many fight each day to protect their families from poverty, famine and disease.

Like fathers everywhere, they dream of giving their children the education needed for a better life. They pray, too, so that their children can put their education to good use as adults.

Will you please join us to support these fathers and their families with your gift today? Your generous gift of $15, $20 or any amount you can spare will help these families in our missions and schools. Also, please be sure to send me the names of those who you want to be remembered in our Father’s Day Novena of Masses by June 15th along with you own intentions.

This Father’s Day let us ask our Lord to bless fathers everywhere and give them the grace to always embrace their children with love and joy.

May our Heavenly Father bless your kindness with His love, and may you and your loved ones know His abiding peace today and always!

Sincerely in the Sacred Heart,
