If you drop the 'O' does the sentence become 'Father explains ...' as if one's own father?

The English translation for this sentence could be an observation that: a priest (the father) explains that Christ (He) is alive. It is hard for me to imagine a case where a native English speaker would refer to his or her own father as "the father" in a sentence of this kind.
