Today is Father’s Day. We salute all fathers, living and deceased. Even the best of fathers acknowledge that no father is perfect. Today we thank God for those of our fathers who embody and teach Paul’s simple statement in the second reading from Romans: “Love is the one thing that cannot hurt your neighbour; that is why it is the answer to every one of the commandments.” Love is the one thing that cannot hurt your child. That is why it is the answer to every one of the contemporary canons for good child-rearing as well as being the embodiment of every tried and tested myth, legend and tradition on how to bring up your kids.
