10 Dads who became canonized saints

CANONIZED SAINTS

These inspiring fathers have a few lessons to pass on to us today.

Being a dad isn’t an easy job; in fact it could try the patience of a saint. So this Father’s Day we want to celebrate 10 special men whose deep love for their children and for God made them truly worthy fathers. Like many parents today, they experienced tragedies and difficulties along the way — the loss of a child, issues at work, difficult life choices — yet, they turned to their faith to keep going and allowed God to mold them into who they were created to be.

So click on Launch Slideshow to reveal these 10 men and what they can teach us to pass on to our own children.
