Novena to the Heavenly Father for our Earthly Fathers

Novena to the Heavenly Father for our Earthly Fathers

Begins on Saturday June 13th, and ends on Father's Day Sunday June 21st.

The Lord Be with You, I'm Deacon Keith Fournier, the Editor in Chief of Catholic Online.

St Paul wrote to the early Christians: "For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that he may grant you in accord with the riches of his glory to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner self, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;

He continued that prayer, "that you, rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God."(Ephesians 3:14 - 19)

Join with me and our Catholic Online community - and thousands of Christians around the world in a Novena to the Heavenly Father for all Earthly Fathers, Spiritual and Natural.

Our Novena prayers will end on Father's Day, the day set aside to honor our fathers and show them our deep appreciation for their sacrificial love.

For Nine Days, we will turn to the Heavenly Father, in, through and with His Son and Our Savior Jesus, and ask Him to fill all earthly Fathers with heavenly wisdom, authority, and grace. We will ask the Heavenly Father to empower and baptize earthly fathers with the Holy Spirit. So that they can live out their vital vocation in an age which has all but forgotten or even rejected fatherhood.

That they might become a sign of His Love for all men and women and help to lead the world back to the Father, in the Son and through the Holy Spirit.

May the Blessing of Almighty God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit come upon you. Amen

Deacon Keith Fournier
