Because of Our Fathers
Nov-Dec '20

A father—the head of the household, as Saint
Paul says—has a crucial role and responsibility in
his family, not only materially, but spiritually. This
is no outdated biblical cliché, but a biological,
sociological, and metaphysical reality that we, too
often, fail to recognize. The example of a father can
leave an indelible imprint on the character of his
In Because of Our Fathers, twenty-three Catholics—
including Patrick Madrid, Abby Johnson, Bishop Joseph Strickland, Father
Paul Scalia, Jesse Romero, Anthony Esolen, Father Rocky, Christopher
Check, and Father Gerald Murray—give portraits of their own fathers as
conduits and models of Christian love. Ranging from the heroic to the
ordinary, these powerful testimonies will inspire men to consider more
deeply the amazing privilege that God has given them—to become, despite
their imperfection, a living image of our Father in Heaven.
The introduction and conclusion by editor Tyler Rowley serve as a wake-up

on the family, he makes clear the urgent need for men to take the Godgiven, grace-filled task of raising children seriously. For more information
