There is no Holy human on earth except the Son of God/Son of Man that is Holy along with the Father and Holy Spirit which is God almighty. The God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob (Israel). 

There is one man that is called Holy Father by their denomination. That Denomination is Christian, but has alot of practices that are not found in the Bible. In that denomination the way they treat the mother of Jesus and the way they treat their leader the Pope is not biblical. Some treat the Pope as if He was Jesus. They worship Him as Holy. The Pope just designated their Priest to be able to forgive Sin, the sin of abortion.

The only Holy Father is the sinless one. Jesus Christ whom is the only Way, the only Truth and the only Life that shed His blood on the Cross so that when we meet God, He will see His Son in us which makes us Holy to be able to stand in front of God and have Eternal Life.

This is called Rabbinic Hyperbole - an exaggeration to drive a certain point. 

Here, the point is made clear. We are all adopted children of God, we have God as our Father. Spiritually speaking. 

But it doesn't mean I can't call my dad "father", or my Maths teacher "teacher". My dad passed me his 23 haploid chromosomes, not to mention he provided our family with what we needed, it is only fitting that I call him "father". Miss Belleza came to our class every 10a.m. to teach Geometry for an hour, my grades depended on passing her exams, it is only fitting that I call her "teacher".
