Description: This 2-page handout addresses a problem that most people have in their faith life: Doesn’t it seem like the Father is the hardest Person of the Holy Trinity to have a close relationship with? The Father is the scary one. He’s the one who punishes us. He expects perfection from us. And He’s too far away up there in Heaven to help us with our little daily problems. Right? Wrong!
The Father gives us total love and kindness and mercy. He gave us Jesus so we won’t have to face punishment for our sins. He is completely patient with us regardless of how imperfect we are. And He’s intimately and infinitely concerned about our daily trials. Heal your image of God’s Fatherhood using scripture and The Catechism of the Catholic Church.
This hand-out goes very well with the Life in the Holy Trinity PPT retreat.
Ideas for use: Healing Mass, parish missions, retreats, pastoral care clients, adult faith formation, RCIA, etc. Restore trust in the Father’s love! Increase people’s power to pray to Our Father in faith.
