BISHOP INVITES PARENTS TO IMITATED GOD'S FATHERHOOD

          PEORIA, 22 (NE) Recalling Pope John Paul II' invitation to reflect along this year on God the Father, Bishop John Myers of Peoria urged faithful to also reflect "over the role or parents in our human family."

          Writing in the diocesan weekly paper "The Catholic Post", Bishop Myers reminded that "each father in a marital relationship and in the family is called to imitate the Fatherly qualities of God the Father. Our God is a God Who is rich in mercy, abounding in love, and full of tenderness."

          The Bishop of Peoria invited all fathers and husbands to attend the Annual Men's Conference to be held June 5. The theme of this year's conference is "Our Father's Embrace." Through this theme "the conference will help to examine the parable of the Prodigal Son and relate its rich messages to the challenges facing men in today's world," said the prelate.

          "I pray that as you attempt to imitate the love of God the Father in this year of preparation for the Jubilee, that all of us will experience God the Father's embrace."
