You Must Encounter Christ Immediately

You must encounter Christ immediately, but it doesn't have to be right away. As with all things, it should happen, and can only happen, in God's timing. Make sense? If not, allow me to explain. Consider this definition of "immediately": "without intervening medium or agent; concerning or affecting directly" (Dictionary.com, 2016).  By this defi...

Matt Fradd Is Wrong

Recently I took to one of my favorite pastimes, sitting on my porch with a cigar, a hot cup of coffee and listening to a good podcast. As far as good podcasts go, you can’t do much better than Catholic Stuff You Should Know.  On top of that, the guest for the day was the accomplished apologist Matt Fradd. Matt came on the show to discuss our cul...

Marriage Will Not Cure Your Lust

When I became a Christian in high school I got involved with the Protestant ministry that introduced me to Christ.  This led eventually to me being a “leader” in this ministry and helping to host camps for teenagers.  It was wildly formative as I was able to work alongside men, young and old, and learn how they did things, handled challenges,...

Catholic men must regard as indispensable the need to gather together in fellowship with other men who profess our same creed.  To do so is not an option, except insofar as Christ affords us the freedom to choose to neglect this foundational aspect of Christian life.  The reason why we must gather together in fellowship with other Catholic men is...

Start A Fraternus Chapter

Boys cannot become men without men.  Pope Pius XI once pointed out the fact that, especially during the formative years, the sexes should be separated: False and harmful to Christian education today is the so-called method of ‘co-education’… a deplorable confusion of ideas… The Creator has ordained and disposed perfect union of the sexes ...

Realize Your Potential! Control Your Passions

“A man who governs his passions is master of the world.  We must either command them, or be enslaved by them.” – St. Dominic I once fouled out of a basketball game in 8th grade and ended up in the bleachers during my protest before the whistle even finished blowing. That was me in 8th grade. You can imagine it didn’t get better any time...

Six Ways Not to Fight Temptation

After making the critical decision to follow Christ, it becomes clear to many men that the Christian life is a lot like sports: there’s a lot more that goes into perfecting one’s game than appears at first.  When a toddler is holding a football, his one task is just to get it into the hands of his dad standing a few feet away; however that hap...

Spiritual Death

It begins when you start shivering. You feel more uncomfortable than you can ever remember. Cold penetrates all over your body. Never in your life can you remember feeling this cold and there is no escape from it. Very soon, you may begin to worry: the cold is incredible… and you begin to notice it is becoming hard to breath. Soon you are not ...

“He Fornicated & Read the Papers”

In The Fall, a fictional philosophical novel by Albert Camus, one character reflects aloud: “I sometimes think of what future historians will say of us. A single sentence will suffice for modern man: he fornicated and read the papers. After that vigorous definition, the subject will be, if I may say so, exhausted.” I first heard this line re...
