Wherever you’re at in your understanding of Catholic Masculinity and the Catholic perspective of gender and identity of Catholic Men, this reflection given by Father John Hollowell is an absolute must!
The world is in shambles. Masculinity is in crisis. There is a deep connection. Father John concisely and elegantly guides us on a path of thinking so as to help us discover true Masculinity as the Church understands it. It can be easy to overlook the fact that our Masculinity is built right into our essence. It isn’t mere biology or genetics. We are Men, and by looking at Catholic teaching, the words of our popes, the saints, and Christ Himself, Father John will inspire in you of what it IS to be MAN!
The talk appears to be given as a reflection following a Gospel reading. It strongly appears to be a talk given during Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Because of the prayerful and reverent nature in which this talk is delivered, I would highly recommend that you listen to this one on your knees. And, I might even suggest that you listen to this one in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Christ is very near to this message and if you’re a Man, this message needs to be near to You!
I promise you that it will be the best 20 minutes of your day (and it has the potential to impact every minute of your life afterwards).
