Catholic Men: Meet Your King

The world of men is careening into greater and greater chaos.  Blood thirsty slaughter of civilians by Islamists.  The wholesale holocaust of babies through abortion.  The growing power of secular governments and media juggernauts who use propaganda and advertising to manipulate opinion and control the masses.  The edicts of judges that overturn the age old understanding of marriage.  The hollowing out of...

Fishers of Men: 7 Ways Priests Can Help Men Grow in Faith

Though the New Evangelization has been a major effort in the Catholic Church for over forty years, it has failed to stem the disastrous losses of the faithful in the U.S. The New Evangelization is faltering: since 2000, 14 million Catholics have left the faith, parish religious education participation of children has dropped by 24%, Catholic school attendance has dropped...

This Father’s Day, Vow to be a Committed Catholic Father

It is mid-June, so it is time for the annual national “head nod” to fathers on Father’s Day. For many, Father’s Day will pass unrecognized; for others, Father’s Day will be celebrated with “man-gifts” (e.g. tools, sports gear, etc.) and perhaps with a pleasant BBQ with family.

Jesus Christ, Conqueror of Satan

Satan – The Ancient Enemy Satan, the Evil One, and his demons, are fallen angels who freely chose to rebel against God’s reign (CCC 391-395). When Adam failed in his vocation to protect Eve and the Garden, Satan (Hebrew: adversary, one who plots against) treacherously enticed Eve to rebel against God (Gen 3:1-24; CCC 1707). Adam and Eve’s Original Sin...

Many are beginning to recognize the severe Catholic “man-crisis” and the necessary imperative to aggressively “emangelize” Casual Catholic Men.

But the average Catholic man who is...

The Case for a Mass Conversion of Men

Jesus Christ: Divine King

Modern Man’s Aversion to Kings and Kingdoms The word “monarchy” comes from the Latin, monarchia, meaning, “absolute rule, the ruling of one.”  Monarchies, a form of human government, are ruled by a king (or queen) and have been around since early human history.  Much of Western civilization has its roots in monarchies.  Today, while about 20% of countries in the world...

12 Ways to Become a Committed Catholic Man

There is a Catholic “man-crisis.” Large numbers of men who were baptized Catholic have left the Church and the majority of those who remain are “Casual Catholic Men”, men who do not know the Catholic faith and don’t practice it. This large-scale failure of Catholic men to commit themselves to Jesus Christ and His Church has contributed to the accelerating...
