This week we recognize the irreplaceable role of fatherhood, a vocation to which all men are called. Pope Francis reminds us: “It is a term dearer than any other to us Christians because it is the name by which Jesus taught us to call God: father.”

On Sunday, June 21, we celebrate Father’s Day. For many, this will be a day of gifting Hallmark cards and neck ties. Some will see the day as joy to come: awaiting the arrival of a new son or daughter. Others will mourn the loss or absence of a father or a child, struggling to heal and forgive. Whatever your experience, we can all agree that fathers have a powerful impact on children and family life.
Check out these three commercials below and take time to celebrate the positive male role models in your life — affirming the gift of their vocation as both spiritual and natural father’s.
