Ep. 4 - Behold! The Epitome of Masculinity is Before You!

Ep. 4 - Behold! The Epitome of Masculinity is Before You!

What does it mean to be a Catholic man? Often times the simple questions are often the most challenging and cause us to reflect on something deeper within ourselves. Self-reflection is a skill I (James) am not particularly gifted at but something I strive to improve daily.

Join your hosts as you learn how manly of a man Jesus actually was (He is the epitome of manhood after all, why you will be constantly asking yourself, "What would Hung Ly do?" and why James and Fr. Dom have a particular gift for coming up with T-shirt slogans.

You will also hear about the Hall of Fame of Holiness (AKA saints) major players in the manhood world. St. Joseph, St. Pope John Paul II, and Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati are just some of the holy men mentioned this episode. Men, if you are not asking these formidable gentlemen to pray for you, you better get to asking! You may also appreciate Father Dom's particular joy in asking for the "no-name saints" to pray for him. After all, they have no one asking for their prayers, right?

And finally, you will get some practical tips that you can start doing right now, this very day even, to do better than what you are currently doing. Hint: if you aren't going to Mass weekly (at minimum) or praying daily (minimum) now might be the time to start.

Fr. Dom Challenge: Get to confession! In an absolute loving but intense way, get in a state of grace men. Jesus is waiting for you in this incredible sacrament. Yes, you will feel like crap leading up to it. Yes, you will be sweating as you list your sins. But man, oh man, do you feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders afterward? Or like the monkey has come off your back? Whatever expression works for you!
