Catholic manhood is under attack. Modern men suffer from effeminacy of the body, mind, and will. Man is attached to pleasure and fears that which is difficult. He suffers an inability to seek the truth, preferring emotion over truth. He rationalizes and justifies everything to get what he wants. Christ’s rebuke of the Apostles during the storm illustrates three points integral to a manhood: [1] Christ wanted them to face something difficult and overcome fear. [2] Christ was intentionally asleep; wanting them to wake Him. [3] Christ called the Apostles to get into the boat, to cast out into the deep. Look to Christ as the perfect example of real man. Consider these four masculine qualities, all of which are violently being attacked. [1] Christ was dominant, because he stood in the truth. [2] Christ was competitive; be perfect; be stronger than the enemy. [3] Christ was aggressive, driving hundreds out of the temple. [4] Christ was disciplined; He was perfectly self-restrained. Build up these characteristics in young men! Every day we must fight, not for ourselves, but for Our King!
