Pope Francis had a special thought on June 21, 2020, for a group of people who face one of the world’s most challenging jobs: fathers.

“Today, in my homeland and in other places, we celebrate the day dedicated to the father, to dads. I assure my closeness and prayer to all fathers,” Pope Francis said. “We all know that being a father is not an easy task: therefore, let us pray for them. I remember in a special way also our fathers who continue to protect us from heaven.”

The Holy Father’s comments came after praying the Angelus with the faithful gathered in St. Peter’s Square.
