What is Spiritual Fatherhood? with Father Dennis Carbonaro

Priests are not only “sort of like” fathers; they are true, spiritual fathers.  Just as a biological father plays an integral role in the lives of his children, so also the priest plays a significant role in the lives of the children of God who are entrusted to his pastoral care.  As Father Carbonaro explains, spiritual fatherhood is fatherhood in a very real sense.
