There’s a reason Catholics call priests “Father”: Priests have always been viewed in the Catholic Church as spiritual fathers. Father’s Day is coming up, and it’s the perfect time to honor your local priest. He is the spiritual father to his flock, after all, and has made a difference in so many lives. 

Simply telling him, “Happy Father’s Day, Father! We are praying for you!” would surely be appreciated. But if you’re able to go the extra mile, give him one of these 5 gifts to show your gratitude for all he does. (For more suggestions, check out this brilliant article, The Best Gifts for Priests, According to Priests.)
