“Created for Greatness”: The Emerging Catholic Men’s Movement

What’s going on here? The leaders of this emergent movement say the goal of events like this is nothing less than complete restoration of the Catholic man. Think “band of brothers” over pockets of loners; would be-martyrs instead of has-been quitters. Virtue and service over vice, sin, and addiction. Every Catholic Caspar Milquetoast is being called to emulate Don John of Austria, who with the Holy League saved Christendom from the Ottoman Turks. Yesterday’s average Joe is being remolded as priest, prophet, and king—a bold and self-sacrificing leader in the model of Jesus and St. Joseph. The call has gone out: real Catholic men wanted. Rosary-praying, faith-defending spiritual warriors. Education and training will be provided. (Source)

Almansa: A Castle of Dreams and Christian Heroism

Make no mistake. The Lord is calling.

“Both the castle and clouds make your sight focus on the tower, which instills an impression of extraordinary gallantry, dignity and majesty. One gets the idea that from this hilltop, this tower is facing an enemy that appears in the distance. But it faces that enemy with gallantry, as if looking at him threateningly and saying: “Come near and I will crush you: I fear not!””

A Man’s Response to the Culture of Death

“If you do not believe what the Church teaches regarding the neuralgias of our time, I am not speaking to you. If you believe that women should be ordained, or that a man can marry a man, or that the government should permit people to snuff out their children before they reach a certain state of cuteness, or that the Pill is good for what ails us, or that divorcing men and women can call Solomon’s bluff, saw their children in two, marry their new squeezes, and be patted on the head by the Church for doing so, while the abandoned spouse is played for a chump all around—I am not speaking to you. – (Source)
