Sunday Quote: Father and Priest

"How privileged and exalted a thing it is to be a father—it images God himself. If children do not have a good image of their earthly father to start from, it will be much harder for them to come to know God as a loving heavenly Father. Saint Augustine had a very bad relationship with his father, and he could not bring himself to address God as Father for a long time. Every father is a priest, like it or not, a good one or a bad one, mediating an image of God to his children." ~ Peter Kreeft, Fundamentals of the Faith: Essays in Christian Apologetics, p. 125
