"Now Adam knew Eve his wife,
and she conceived and bore Cain, saying,
"I have gotten a man with the help of the Lord"(Gn 4:1).,
"Each One of Us
Icon of the Beginning"
(cf. Gn 1:1-2; Ps 139: 16;
and Jn 1: 1-4)
This book is a thanksgiving to God
the spiritual fatherhood of Pope John Paul II.
It is written out of love for the child that didn't make it,
my wife and our daughter,
our second child on the way
and the forgotten fathers.
Let the Fatherhood of God
be rediscovered in our world
in the daily life of the father
at work and at rest
in the family
and in society.
St. Joseph, Guardian of the Redeemer+,
Pray for us.
||Pope John Paul II, Guardian of the Redeemer, 1989, (Boston: St. Paul Books & Media).
The title of this Apostolic Exhortation suggested itself as the beginning of a Litany for fathers.
