Catholic Culture: the Head Chair for the Father of the House

My entire life my father has sat in this chair, at the head of the table.

This is the father's place.  He is to lead.  If we do not enable him to lead, the house will fall apart.  If he is a weak man, then his wife can be strong and prop him up.

We must teach, enable and allow him to lead as the Father in heaven leads the Christian family.

We must restore the role of the father.  And the sit-down dinners around a formal table, with him at the capotavola.
