God, our Father,
we ask that you bless all men
who are fathers on earth to your children.
In a special way, we think of those who
no longer have a father in their lives. Hold them in your arms
when they long for a fatherly embrace, protect them and keep them
as only a loving father can. We also pray for boys and men
who are not yet fathers, but will be some day.
May they teach their children to know your Divine love,
and to trust in your Providence until they are reunited with
you in paradise one day. We ask these things in the name
of your Son, Jesus Christ.
