Spiritual Fatherhood

St. Vincent de Paul said: “If you love the poor, your life will be filled with sunlight, and you will not be frightened at the hour of death.” Fr. Benedict Groeschel once wrote, “I wish to witness that this is true.” 


Fr. Groeschel was one of the founders of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal whose mission includes living a radically poor life, and serving the poor. Serving the most vulnerable, homeless women and their children, was his joy. In this way we are all called to spiritual Fatherhood as it says in James 1:27 to look after the orphans and widows in their affliction.


This Father’s Day, honor your father and the great legacy of spiritual fatherhood led by Fr Benedict Groeschel. Please in your generosity make a pledge to support the homeless mothers and babies in the care of Good Counsel’s four maternity homes.
