Product Description

In Father at Night, author Michael O'Brien describes the challenges, triumphs, and defeats of the vocation of fatherhood lived in circumstances ranging from difficult to impossible. In doing so, he illuminates the meaning of fatherhood as a path to holiness and the role of children in bringing their parents to adult maturity. 

“… the family seems at times a hospital, a prison, a boarding house and a mental institution. It is all of these and more, of course. It is a place of ‘fearful beauty’, packed to the full with every emotion imaginable, with moments of brilliant illumination and dark squalor, with limitless opportunities for heroism and for sin. … It is the great school of the soul.” ~Michael O’Brien
