These wise words are a great reminder for every dad of his important mission.

Being a dad can be exhausting. Trying to juggle the demands of work, marriage, commitments, and being present to your children can take a toll. But it’s also an extremely rewarding vocation and as Pope Francis frequently points out, crucial for a family’s well-being. As you prepare to celebrate the wonderful fathers in your life, take a few minutes to read what our current pontiff has said about the vital mission of being a father. Many of the quotes are taken from his general audiences in 2014 and 2015. which are worth reading in their entirety, but we’ve selected a few of our favorites to share with you here for this special occasion.
