Yankee First Baseman Speaks of His Dad and His Catholic Faith

Catholic Lane: “We had a large extended family, and family has always been important to me. I have three of my own kids now, two boys and a girl, and there’s nothing more important than being a parent. You’re blessed by God to be able to cooperate in the creation and upbringing of another human being with an immortal soul. There’s a tremendous joy, but also responsibility, in that reality.

“I appreciate how the Church is so dedicated to that: to being pro-life and pro-family.

“I love being a parent and am grateful for what I’ve learned from my own parents. As Pope Benedict has reminded us in his encyclical Deus Caritas Est, God is love.” Read Trent Beattie’s full report here.
