fathers with children

September 11, 2012 10:07 am

I’m particularly moved at the sight of the fathers who have come here with their wives to look after their children during the Program. So there are the daddies walking with their little babies along the corridors, asking their wives out for breast-feeding sessions and – during the Mass – standing next to their spouses who may then hold the babies to their hearts.

As there is no parenthood without a couple, the same way with the service of a doctor or a practitioner: they all need  help from their wife or husband who work “backstage,” but in fact they make that service possible at all!

So today I’m thinking with special gratitude about all the wives, husbands and children who are staying and home and missing their beloved ones that came here to take part in EP. They know that this time of separation will bear fruit not only to the others, but also for their own families. Because “…whatever you did to one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you have done it to Me…”

May God bless you,

Fr Jay
