Christ’s Masculinity: A Model for Educating Boys

Ezra Pound was born in Idaho—but you wouldn’t know it to hear him speak. The American poet (1885-1972) set sail for Europe in 1908 and spent a large part of the rest of his life bouncing around the continent with an accent as strange and difficult to pin down as he was. Pound is hailed as a leader in literary modernism and was responsible for j...

Three Secular Maxims for the “New Evangelization” Evangelist

It’s odd to me that the term “New Evangelization” has yet to catch real fire in the Catholic Church.  What I mean is that it has yet to become a common enough term that the vast majority of Catholics not only recognize it but that they also know what it means. In a nutshell, it carries forth the evangelical mission of the Second Vatican C...

What a Man Can Learn from Candles and Old Church Ladies

On February 2, 2018, we celebrate the Feast Day of the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple.

A Catholic Man’s Response to #MeToo

When Will We Reign with Christ?

Having reached the end of the liturgical year, with the feast of Christ the King this last Sunday, we can ask what exactly are we celebrating? A distant and future reality or a presence that shapes our lives on a daily basis? Going through Exodus 90, the Redemption Hymn we prayed from the Book of Revelation really stood out to me in this regard. O...

Fr. Miguel Juarez, A Hero for Christ

Miguel Augustin Pro Juarez was ordained a Priest in Belgium on August 31, 1925.  Already by 1926, however, due to his poor health, Fr. Miguel’s superiors sent him back to his homeland of Mexico.  Thus began his story of heroic suffering for which he is known.  Less than a month after his arrival home, “an order suppressing all public worship...

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...

Becoming Who You Are

“Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” –Mt 4:19 The Gospel of Matthew 4:12-23 is a great one: Jesus begins his proclamation of the Gospel with a simple command: “Repent.”  It’s the condition for entering the Kingdom of God. He proceeds to walk along the shore of the lake and call his first disciples: Peter and Andrew, ...
