Why Call God “Father”? – Podcast

A podcast in which host Sonrise Morning show host Anna Mitchell asks Dr. Italy some interesting questions raised by the observance of Father’s Day, whether it is still legitimate, in this day and age, to call God “Father.”  Isn’t the “fatherhood” of God politically incorrect?

Father’s Day brings up a very good question — in this post-feminist era, why should we stick to calling God “Father”??  Isn’t this just a relic from a bygone, patriarchal culture.  After all, if God is spirit, he is neither male nor female.  Sonrise Morning show host, Anna Mitchell asks such questions of Dr. Italy who shares from the bible, the Tradition, and the teaching of the Catholic Church just what it means when we say God is Father as well as what we don’t mean.  You’ll love his insights into the fatherhood of God communicated with energy and conciseness in this ten minute podcast.

For a post on this topic, read Dr. Italy’s essay on GOD THE FATHER.
