A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He said to his father: “Dad could we discuss the use of your car?” His father said to him: “Sure, I will make a deal with you. you bring your grades up, read the bible every day, and get your hair cut; then we’ll talk about it.”

A month later the boy came back and again asked his father if he could use the car. His father said, “Son, I’m really proud of you. You brought your grades up. You are faithful to your bible reading. but son, you did not get your hair cut!”

The young man waited a moment and then said to his father: “You know dad, I’ve been thinking about that. in reading the bible I noticed that Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair.”

His father tapped him on the shoulder and said, “Yes son, and did you notice that they walked everywhere they went?

Happy Father’s Day to all Fathers, Grandfathers, and Stepfathers. Five weeks ago, we observed Mother’s Day and offered Mass for our mothers. Today, on this Father’s Day, we are doing the same – offering our dads, living or dead, on the altar of God during this Holy Mass and invoking our Heavenly Father’s blessings on them.
