St. John Paul II on the Critical Importance of Fathers

By St. Pope John Paul II

Love for his wife as mother of their children and love for the children themselves are for the man the natural way of understanding and fulfilling his own fatherhood. ICLE-Catholic Education resources

Above all where social and cultural conditions so easily encourage a father to be less concerned with his family or at any rate less involved in the work of education, efforts must be made to restore socially the conviction that the place and task of the father in and for the family is of unique and irreplaceable importance.”

~ Pope Saint John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio
