From the beginning we have known you as 'Father', and all our families have their origin in you.
Blessed be God for ever.
Through the love of earthly fathers you give us a glimpse of your everlasting love. Their guidance and wisdom reveal to us the eternal life of heaven.
Blessed be God for ever.
In following their example we become more like you, growing into the people your heart longs for us to be.

May the love of our fathers draw us ever nearer to you and perfect in us the image of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Blessed be God for ever
  
Heavenly Father, you entrusted your Son Jesus, the child of Mary, to the care of Joseph, an earthly father. Bless all fathers as they care for their families.
Give them strength and wisdom, tenderness and patience; support them in the work they have to do, protecting those who look to them, as we look to you for love and salvation, through Jesus Christ our rock and defender.
Amen.
