The Talk: Make It an Ongoing Conversation

As rules of some kind, the following things stand out in my memory from my youth: I was never to ride on a motorcycle. If I ever ended up in handcuffs, I’d be spending at least one night in a cell before help arrived. Sex outside of marriage is wrong. I never thought of those “rules” as linked in any way, but they were obviously...

A Lesson for Fathers from My Son with Down Syndrome

I can’t say that I am envious of my two-and-a-half year old son, but I desire to have the faith and love that he exudes each day. Fulton is blessed with Down syndrome, which I’ve come to realize means that he’s got an extra chromosome crammed with genuine love and a basic wisdom about life that most of us either lose or have difficulty attain...

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...

Defending Humanae Vitae: A Bishop Stands Up for the Truth

When facing the difficulties of secular culture, we have two major options: to accommodate the culture or to hold fast to the truth. I think we now have enough evidence to certify that the first option leads to death. Literally, Christian churches are dying out because they have lost their faith and their commitment to the truth. When we as ind...

Show Love and Affirmation to Your Children. And Say It Too.

A large part of our role as parents entails forming the identity and character of our children by giving them the support and security they need. We do this largely by loving them—willing their good and expressing it in a way that they can understand—and affirming the goodness of their identity as children of the Father. (As I continue this...

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. (Note: so too has toxic femininity, but it’s not the topic of this article.)  Many men hate this indictment and resist it.  After all, who wants to be painted with the same broad brush that touches sexua...

St. Joseph Wouldn’t Buy a Diamond Ring, Neither Should You

This time of year romance is literally in the air - that is, if you get snow where you live and find it romantic. With lights a-twinkling, ample opportunity to get cozy by a fire, and a widespread spirit of generosity, Christmastime has all the frosting of romance. But there is substance too. Christmas celebrates the birth of the man who loved c...

From Drudgery to Joy: Work in Its Proper Context

Stress about work is common among men.  Whether it be from anxiety about providing for our families, a lack of personal fulfillment and a sense of meaning, or the everyday interpersonal difficulties that work often entails, it is a simple fact that our work puts a lot of pressure on us.  This is understandable.  We are, after all, creatures made...

Eros How To: Path of Ascent, Not Suppression

All forms of love are not totally selfless.  When we first “behold” a thing and feel love, we do so because it brings a sort of pleasure to us.  Its not totally selfless, and that is normal.  We are attracted to someone, and the pleasure of the attraction draws us in further.  Though not totally selfless, it is still a part of the path to s...

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...
