Father's Day has me reflecting on perhaps the most serious vocation's crisis in our world today: fatherhood. Yet so many men don't know the joys that fatherhood can give. They only focus on the crosses. There are lot of guys in our society who stay along the shoreline, in the shallow water, afraid to go out to the deep of being a parent. The devil has worked overtime on the male heart in our society to drive them from fatherhood. So many men, for different reasons, forfeit their role to be an earthly image of God, our Heavenly Father.
