No more “Father Joe”

No more “Father Joe”

Karen Csengeri, writing in the Adoremus Bulletin, warns that we’ve become to chummy with our priests, especially as evidence by calling them by their first names, even when preceded by “Father.” Now, she’s not saying we shouldn’t be friends with our priests, but that even iin our friendships, certain courtesies should be observed. Priests are our fathers, and just as it’s not appropriate for children to call their parents by their first names, neither should we do so with our spiritual fathers.
