for this time

Yesterday, as Becket and I were talking; I came to realize that there are certain truths of the Christian faith that he did not understand….

I feel like I have failed my son.

This morning as I prayed the prayer of the Optina Elders the words: “In every hour of the day, reveal Your will to me.” It seemed to me that the realization of helping my son (and all 3 of my children) to understand the Christian faith, is God’s will for me at this time.

Lord help me to be a patient and selfless father.
