"The Father by Fr. Mark-Mary has been a helpful resource for me during my time of prayer. Through the stories, biblical passages and meditations provided in this work, I have perceived the Father’s delight in me as His beloved son. I highly recommend this book!"

"Christians often talk about having 'a personal relationship with Jesus' or being 'guided by the Holy Spirit.' But what about God the Father? Do we find our identity in the Father's love and live from that love day-by-day? Thankfully, Fr. Mark Mary's The Father helps us do just that... Through Scripture, the saints and compelling stories of true fatherhood, this book beautifully brings us deeper into the heart of the Father's love.

"Powerful, engaging, and vitally important. Fr. Mark-Mary speaks straight into our hearts with words that help to trust in the goodness and love of God the Father. In a world where so many of us have wounded relationships with earthly fathers and complicated ideas of what it might mean to have a Father in heaven, this book draws us toward the life-giving truth about our dignity and worth in the eyes of a loving God."

–Danielle Bean

"Through moving accounts of fatherhood and insightful meditations on Sacred Scripture, Fr. Mark-Mary Ames, CFR, draws us to a deeper understanding of the merciful and loving heart of our Heavenly Father. This guided retreat will be a source of inspiration and an opportunity for the reader to renew their identity as a beloved son or daughter of God.”

"Whether we tend to take God’s fatherhood for granted or ache to believe in the Father’s love, Fr. Mark-Mary Ames’ The Father will gently shake us awake to the most beautiful reality of our lives: we have always been, and always will be, loved."
