What Blessings Do for Kids

If dads are supposed to imitate Jesus, did Jesus bless children?

  • Yes!
  • “Children were brought to Jesus so that he could lay His hands on them in prayer.” – Matt 19:13

Does a dad have to first be perfect himself in order to bless?

  • Nope!
  • Just like priests aren’t perfect, God works through imperfect people to bring about His perfect love and His perfect plans.
  • A strong Catholic dad isn’t a perfect Catholic dad. He strives to grow strong in faith, strong in hope, and strong in love.
