About this Episode
Priests are fathers and fathers are priests—a concept that is increasingly difficult to understand in a culture that devalues the role of fathers more and more with each passing day. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn and Rob Corzine, Vice President of Programs at the St. Paul Center, offer clarity on the often-overlooked connection between priesthood and fatherhood.
We don’t typically connect celibacy with fatherhood, but celibacy is precisely how priests live out their call to be spiritual fathers. To learn more, check out Why Celibacy?: Reclaiming the Fatherhood of the Priest.
The Church’s understanding of the supernatural fatherhood comes largely from Scripture. Explore the biblical basis of more Catholic traditions in Scripture Matters: Essays on Reading the Bible from the Heart of the Church by Scott Hahn.
