Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time

My Father’s Day Joke written by James C. Bush:

When we moved cross country, my wife and I decided to drive both our cars. Nathan, our eight-year old, worriedly asked, “How will we keep from getting separated?” “We’ll drive slow so one car can follow the other,” I reassured him. “Yeah, but what if we get separated?” he persisted. “Then I guess we’ll never see each other again,” I quipped.

“Okay,” he said, “I’m riding with Mom.”

It is really hot in here… and all of you are wearing masks! So, I would simply like to wish all the fathers, living and deceased, a Happy Father’s Day!

I would like to wish our common Father, God our Father a major thank you! And, as an expression of my thanks, I will do everything in my power to sacrifice for you to do what is right and just. Hopefully, my actions will benefit people in the future that I will never even meet, all because you loved me and sacrificed your Son for me.

Thank you for giving me the virtues and the people in my life to live out a vocation of service to you and all of our family.

Happy Father’s Day!
