|Angels of God,|
pray for every son
who has died
Increasingly we have noticed that numerous 20 and 21 and 25 year old men have step-fathers mentioned as the primary father figure in their lives. The real fathers have f***** off into the ether. They have gone to Mars and have abandoned the sons of their body.
When I was growing up, I had a step-father. He was young and wild and addicted to booze and was violent.
|The Step-fathers who|
take their wives sons as
their own and who cry
when these sons die in
As a step-father to me, he was a total failure. He later had 2 biological children. He was good to the daughter, but not really good to his son.
In other words, as a "father" or "step-father" he was a failure. He just didn't have it in him to be loving to children. Children were a nuisance. He had other fish to fry. And that fish was selfishness.
God help those step-fathers in this world who actually love their step-children.
God give strength to those step-fathers who love their step-sons and who lose them due to war and who bury them. They have lost a son. Their sorrow is more than real. Amen.
