That Man Is You: Fatherhood
Fatherhood Session 3 - The Formation of a Child
In Session 2, we looked at the “greatest modern saint” and saw that she was a “chip off the old block.” In this session we will consider the “greatest modern prophet and miracle worker” in the Church - St. Don Bosco.
Perhaps the greatest miracle that Don Bosco worked is developing a “fool proof” method for forming youth. The foundation of the Preventive System is the abiding presence of the father. Indeed, Don Bosco based the entire system upon the vision of a father within the home.
Above all else, the father was to ensure the moral and spiritual formation of his children so that one day they
would all be together in heaven. We will see that, “Bad books, bad companions and bad habits” lead innocent youths astray. We are called to be the protectors of our families.
Today, the enemy is most frequently within our gates and God has given us a stern warning.
