Revelation of the Father
Next in the series of the That Man is You! program is The Revelation of the Father, in which we consider man in his relationship to his children. It is modeled on the life of St. Joseph, the man chosen to be the foster father of Jesus Christ, God Incarnate.
The Fall semester considers the reality of fatherhood and discovers a mystery far deeper than a simple biological reality. Integrating the latest medical science with the vision of St. Joseph presented in Scripture, The Revelation of the Father discovers a mystery that touches God. Indeed, men “relive and reveal on earth the very fatherhood of God” (Cf. Pope John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio, #25). This spiritual reality has attracted the enmity of Satan. As such, The Revelation of the Father takes an honest look at the challenges facing fathers in modern culture.
The Spring semester considers the moral environment confronting youth and sets forth the vision of a child capable of making moral decisions in the face of significant pressure. It discovers in St. John Bosco’s Preventive System of Education the parenting method perfectly suited to modern times. It integrates the Seven Steps to a Healthy, Happy, Holy Family with Don Bosco’s Preventive method to provide practical guidance to parents in developing a “parenting plan of life.”
