The most important thing a Father can do!

The most important thing a father can do for this children is to love their mother

Henry Ward Beecher

Ephesians 5:25

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,
that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

There are three things I think about every moment of everyday... they consume me deeply. How to: 1. Refine my theological understanding 2. sharpen my ethical rigor 3. and heighten my devotional intensity. These are the things I write about. Welcome you to my blog... Join me on this incredible journey of exploration and discovery of all the things God has in store for His children. Join by following or subscribing. I appreciate your thoughts, comments and friendship. Walter


  1. Love that post! I think the quote originally came from a psychologist Bruno Bettleheim which, if true, means that even the secular community understands the importance of the father’s love of the mother.


    • You may be right… I only picked it up from the writings of the priest… If you could attach a link to the psychologist Bruno Bettleheim that would be really nice. I will love to give proper credit. In the main time I will do some research and make the adjustment. Thanks for pointing that out… Much appreciated.

        The quote is not only attributed to Theodore m. Hesburgh, but to Henry Ward Beecher
