Notes


Luke 11: 11 - 13 - “What father among you would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish? Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?” - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/luke/11


“The best thing a father has to give is himself.”


Malachi 3: 23b - 24a - “Before the day of the LORD comes,

the great and terrible day; He will turn the heart of fathers to their sons,

and the heart of sons to their fathers” -https://bible.usccb.org/bible/malachi/3


“The heart is the dwelling-place where I am, where I live; according to the Semitic or Biblical expression, the heart is the place "to which I withdraw." The heart is our hidden center, beyond the grasp of our reason and of others; only the Spirit of God can fathom the human heart and know it fully. The heart is the place of decision, deeper than our psychic drives. It is the place of truth, where we choose life or death. It is the place of encounter, because as image of God we live in relation: it is the place of covenant.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2563. - https://www.usccb.org/sites/default/files/flipbooks/catechism/616/


“A father calls forth their child’s heart by giving them his heart”


Hebrews 12: 4 - 13 - “In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood. You have also forgotten the exhortation addressed to you as sons:

“My son, do not disdain the discipline of the Lord or lose heart when reproved by him; for whom the Lord loves, he disciplines; he scourges every son he acknowledges.” Endure your trials as “discipline”; God treats you as sons. For what “son” is there whom his father does not discipline?.” - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/hebrews/12


“Discipline is not primarily something you do, it's something you are”


Ryan Holiday, The Obstacle is the Way - https://www.amazon.com/Obstacle-Way-Ancient-Adversity-Advantage/dp/1781251495


“The ministerial or hierarchical priesthood of bishops and priests, and the common priesthood of all the faithful participate, "each in its own proper way, in the one priesthood of Christ." While being "ordered one to another," they differ essentially. In what sense? While the common priesthood of the faithful is exercised by the unfolding of baptismal grace --a life of faith, hope, and charity, a life according to the Spirit--, the ministerial priesthood is at the service of the common priesthood. It is directed at the unfolding of the baptismal grace of all Christians. The ministerial priesthood is a means by which Christ unceasingly builds up and leads his Church. For this reason it is transmitted by its own sacrament, the sacrament of Holy Orders.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1547 - https://www.usccb.org/sites/default/files/flipbooks/catechism/388/


“The ministerial priesthood is a means by which Christ unceasingly builds up and leads his Ecclesial Family. The baptismal priesthood is a means by which Christ unceasingly builds up and leads his Domestic Church.”

.

Ephesians 5: 23 - “ For the husband is head of his wife just as Christ is head of the church, he himself the savior of the body” https://bible.usccb.org/bible/ephesians/5
