Archbishop Rogelio Cabrera López of Monterrey, president of the Mexican Bishops’ Conference, said in a Father's Day message that fathers are not just providers and that their example is St. Joseph.
In his message "Being fathers following the example of St. Joseph," the archbishop stressed that "as sons and daughters, we shouldn’t see our fathers as simple material providers that help us get through day to day living."
“Dads are more than providers, they are true companions in life, forgers of encouragement and hope that help us to fully develop,” the prelate emphasized.
Although "in some families, the presence of the father is nil or distant, we have the option of turning to the experience and wisdom of our grandfather, who can also accompany us, giving clarity to the moments in which darkness seems to prevail," Archbishop Cabrera continued.
