Three Ways Children Teach Their Fathers About Eternity

Raising children is a great blessing. That God would bestow upon man the ability to share in His creative power is a wondrous example of His generosity; or, depending on your viewpoint, this procreative ability is proof that God has a sense of humor. Can you imagine what else might have been said in Heaven during Creation week that is not record...

Leader, Provider, Protector: A Man’s Mission.

When working with men dealing with a variety of issues, one thing I’ve found they all seem to struggle with is a lack of a sense of mission.  To live a happy, fulfilling and productive life, we need to know our primary purpose, our mission.  For men, that mission is to be effective leaders, providers, and protectors.  This is our nature.  A w...

Now Is The Time of St. Joseph

Men, it is time to turn earnestly to the protection of the great St. Joseph. When Egypt experienced a great famine, “Pharaoh told all the Egyptians, ‘Go to Joseph and do what he tells you’” (Genesis 41:55). The world is experiencing a great, moral famine. The Popes have told us: “Go to Joseph, Son of David.” Devotion to St. Jo...

The Devil is a Dad Too

Did you know Jesus once called the Devil a father?  When the Son came to “reveal the face of the father” and was asked by His disciples how they ought to pray, it was with this very image – “Our Father, who art in heaven…” So, I think we should pay attention when the devil is given a paternal recognition.  Fatherhood generates and per...

No Humility, No Glory, No Sonship

The Humility and Glory of Being a Son Boys come out of women.  Mothers after all are the ones that give birth.  Coming out of them, separated away from them, is a priestly reality.  We are separated out of women (and childhood for that matter) in order to be men, called to lay down our life so that the promise and hope that women and children r...

You Can’t “Make” Men Out of Boys. Maturity Is Begotten Not Made.

Lately I can’t stop mulling over the words “begotten not made” from the Creed. The eternal Son is born of the Father - God from God, light from light, true God from true God – not made. If modernity is good at anything, its making things. And judging by the infanticide and obsession with sterile forms of “sexuality”, we are not into thi...

As The Family So The Church

Mr. Brian Jones The political philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre once observed that the contemporary breakdown of communal and familial life in the West is frequently attributed to the wrong cause. Many commentators have argued that the disintegration of our culture, and its rapidly increased secularizing power, has been the result of the loss of re...

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 ...

Where Are Their Fathers?

As men, God calls us to be strong and virtuous leaders, providers and protectors in every area of our lives. We cannot do this if we are enslaved to anything. The dark world of pornography has enslaved many men, preventing them from being the men God has called them to be. One way that pornographers lure men into viewing pornography is by presen...

What Becoming a Father or Mentor Will Do to You

Be forewarned. If you decide to deepen your fatherly identity in some form of mentoring it will not just affect young people. It will also have a profound effect on you.  Why? Firstly, you are making real and explicit your core identity as a man, which is a father. Fatherhood is matured masculinity, which has been passed on through fathers befo...
