How to Be a Humble HERO in 2017

It seems that in the mind of many Christian men today, the ideas of humility and heroism are mutually exclusive. Meekness and humility are praised highly, as indeed they should be, but magnanimity and the virtues of soldiers are more or less swept under the rug. This is a great tragedy of our time. For, as Longfellow puts it in A Psalm of Life, ...

Made for Greatness?

Jospeh Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) is attributed with saying the following: “The world offers you comfort, but you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness!” I have two problems with that quote. The first problem is that it does not actually define greatness. Is it wealth, power, popularity? Well, since he was a Pope maybe...

Wise Men, The Nothingness of Eastern Religions, and the Somethingness of Christianity

A brilliant and valiant teacher named John Senior is continuing to be discovered by those startled by today’s shadowy darkness, especially through a newly published biography. Interestingly, Senior could be described as an apostle of shadows, not because shadows are not real but because they point to the fact that things are real. How else could ...

What My DAD Taught Me About Strength

Four hundred pounds is a lot of weight by any estimation. When loaded on a barbell resting on one’s back, four hundred pounds is unquestionably heavy. Now, do a set of squats with that weight. Such a feat relatively few people ever have the strength, ability, or desire to even attempt. Yet, this was the goal my dad had set for himself for his ...

Catholic Churches to Men: “You’re Not Welcome Here.”

  This article is an excerpt from "Answers to The Catholic Man Crisis" available HERE   Intrigued by something called the “men’s rights movement” I ordered some books by the activists of the movement (all by women, interestingly). Offering an alternative theory for why men are absent, aloof, and irresponsible, they claim men are n...

The Transgender Movement Is Especially Dangerous for Boys

It is a bit ironic that the “bathroom wars” began in Charlotte, NC, my home state.[1] While we war over whether or not a man is a man, or just seems that way, North Carolina’s motto remains engraved in stones around the state: Esse quam videri, which is Latin for “to be, rather than to seem”. Like I said – ironic. Of course, I th...

8 Ways to Put the Fear of God in Your Children

The concept a man has of God guides his whole life.  If he considers God a far-off being with no concern for mankind, he will return the favor and have no concern for God.  If Jesus is a softie who advocates a spineless resignation that he calls “love,” a man will never stand up to defend the truth of the faith.  If he perceives God to be a ...

The Brown Robed Man

Over the years, St. Francis has borne more than his fair share of controversy. As a provocative figure in his time, he used his popularity/notoriety to reinvigorate and rebuild the Church. In the centuries following his death, the nature and scope of his personal mission and that of the religious order he founded became points of heated debate. The...

Be A Man. Change The World. The Witness of St. John Paul II

During a visit to Australia, I witnessed a funeral on television that I have never forgotten.  It was April 8th, 2005, and the funeral was that of Pope St. John Paul II.Rome, the eternal city, was flooded with over a million foreigners that came to pray for a man most of them had never actually met.  Thousands overflowed from St. Peter’s squa...

When You Hate Being A Father

It is with heavy heart and weary mind that I present what is one of the hardest statements I’ve ever written: I wish I were not a father today. I should probably clarify this little bit of bitterness. I do not mean that I wish I did not have my two beautiful boys, who look up at me with their mother’s deep blue eyes. I do not mean I regret t...
