A Catholic Man’s Response to #MeToo

Let’s begin this article with a controversial statement: Toxic masculinity is real and has been since near the beginning of human existence.

One Key to Success in All Things

What matters in that moment is being present to my family, and being fully present is a task I hope to take into every area of my life. I have often heard stories about...
