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 Catholic Stance in a World Off Its Axis

We sat under the moon at Monreau Seminary on the campus of Notre Dame; seven college men from the University of St. Thomas and one holy priest. As we re-hashed our weeklong conference on leadership in Catholic education, our conversation led to many cultural tragedies that find rationalization in academia: man-hating feminism, gender identity co...

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 ...

Keeping Communion: The Liturgy Millennials Ditched

An article denigrating the so-called “reform of the reform” movement recently appeared in Commonweal. In it, Michael H. Marchal argued that it is not new liturgical practices that are to blame for a decline in liturgical enthusiasm, but a lack of zeal, grace and “style” in their implementation.

Men! Open Your Minds

Mr. Sean Mitchell You have probably heard these famous words of G.K. Chesterton: “Merely having an open mind is nothing. The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.”  I wholeheartedly agree; I hope you do too.  That being said, I think Chesterton’s words raise an important question.  ...

The Long Run

The 20th century economist John Maynard Keynes famously wrote: “In the long run, we’re all dead.” The quip was meant in some ways as a tongue-in-cheek jab at those who did not share his views about the long-run effects of high government spending, and in context is a criticism of what Keynes perceived as flaws in his opponents’ thinking. Al...

Where is God in Addiction Recovery?

People often wonder where God is when they struggle with an addiction.  Many of the men I work with who struggle with pornography addiction have prayed fervently for God to take it away.  However, they feel their prayers have fallen on deaf ears because they continue to struggle.  Some believe that God doesn’t even care about them.  They beli...

The Necessity of a Spiritual Retreat

In battlefields, darkened by smoke and deafened by opponents’ screams, one might need to withdraw from the fray, to regroup and re-attack, in a word, to retreat. The idea of retreating is not one of failure, though it does carry that connotation. Rather, retreat is a realization that you, the soldier, cannot win this fight right now, armed as you...
