Season For Prayer

5th Sunday after Pentecost 2016

Father begins by reflecting on Father’s Day and how all fatherhood is derived from the Holy Trinity and the great responsibility fathers have of doing all they can for their children.  St. Joseph is the model for all earthly fathers and we must emulate the great humility he displayed in fulfilling his role.  Father then moves on to the theme for today’s Mass – that of the need for prayer and the unity of prayer while always being cautious of what we say about others.  He reminds us that during Pentecost Season we are in a season of sanctification, which requires reception of the sacraments, prayer – including mental prayer, spiritual reading and closeness to our Father in Heaven.
