Father Santan Pinto’s Letter to Men
Dear Fathers:
 
I pray that this journey on the path of holiness will be exciting for you. You have a great desire to be formed after the heart of God, who is our heavenly Father! The world and much more the evil one, does not want you to become a father.
 
Being a father means understanding that it is a call. When you see fatherhood as a gift you will accept it in humility and gratitude. Humility comes from the fact that you are weak. The pressures of the world are strong and flesh seems to have its way. Gratitude comes from the fact that the Lord is your Shepherd and He is with you always. With Him all things are possible. As you allow Him to guide your steps in holiness you will witness His wonders. In this vocation there are certain demands, challenges, struggles, and responsibilities. It is the grace that counts. All we have to do is open our hearts to the graces God gives us.
 
This training program is a journey. You discover your identity and recognize your dignity. In understanding your vocation you grow in holiness. You learn to serve as St. Joseph did and realize that God has entrusted His children to your fatherly care!
 
With my priestly blessings,
 
Fr. Santan Pinto, SOLT
Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity
