Fatherhood is the gift you give to your children and that your children give to you, every day.
“Being a great father is like shaving. No matter how good you shaved today, you have to do it again tomorrow.” – Reed Markham
Fathers are invited to participate in the triune life everyday through their relationships with their children and spouses. Their role? Nothing less than being the steadfast hero, the dutiful and patient guide, and the caring companion of his family. On Father's Day, and every day, let us recognize the important role fathers play in the healthy development of children and our society as a whole.
Fathers, we THANK YOU, for the daily effort you put into the care of others!
"Fatherhood is a vocation in God’s service, to be not held lightly or frivolously, but with the serious determination of serious men." -Fr. Lawrence G. Lovasik, The Catholic Family Handbook.
“The arch-enemy of compassion is pity.”- Sister Dr. Ann Ward
Sister Ann Ward spent over 50 years with the Medical Missionaries of Mary, obtained her Master's and her Fellowship in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at University College Dublin where she was awarded the Distinguished Graduate Award for outstanding achievement in the field of medicine, and dedicated her life to helping women suffering from obstetrical fistula in Itam, Nigeria.
Dr. Robert Walley remembers, "I was deeply saddened to receive an email message this week telling me of Sr/Dr Ann Ward of the Medical Missionaries of Mary (MMMs), passing into heaven at 90 - years. I am sure that she has now seen her God as He really is and was received with a smile and a warm embrace for all that she has done for mothers in Nigeria for over 60 years, and for the example she was of love, courage and determination." MCI Remembers Sr. Ann Ward (Cont.)
