Should Catholics Call Priests Father?

Added 22 February 2018 by Fr. Mike Schmitz

One of the most common Bible verses people use to try and debunk Catholic teaching is Matthew 23:9, where Jesus says, “Call no man on earth father.” In this video, Fr. Mike Schmitz guides us through the New Testament to give us the context and significance of this teaching. By the end of this video, you will see that Christ’s words here have much deeper meaning than what many people would believe.
