Father’s Day is a day of honoring fatherhood, paternal bonds, as well as, the influence of fathers in society.  In Catholic countries of Europe, it has been celebrated on March 19 since the Middle Ages.  This celebration was brought by the Spanish and Portuguese to Latin America, where March 19th is often still used for it.  Many countries in Europe and the Americas have adopted the U.S. date which is the third Sunday of June.  It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March, April and June, according to the Home Nations customs.  As we celebrate Father’s Day in June, let us remember all fathers everywhere.  I would like to thank fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers and every male who has brought up any children and showed their love, like a father should.  Our greatest thanks should go to our Father in Heaven.  He shows us the right thing to do at all times.  His greatest love and sacrifice is His son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Let us show our love to fathers everywhere.
