"Christ the new Adam, in the very revelation of the mystery of the Father and his love, fully reveals man to himself and brings to light his most high calling." –Gaudium et Spes 22
In today’s world, masculinity is often portrayed untruthfully. On television, men are the goofy, unreliable husbands who need their wives to do everything for them. But in the eyes of the Church, men are created in the image and likeness of God. They have unique and irreplaceable gifts to bring to the family, relationships, society, and the Church. The fact that the Son of God became incarnate as a man reveals something about the high dignity of masculinity. It reveals that a man has a special vocation to reveal the very love of God the Father for the world. The Church, therefore, has the duty to support men in their life of faith and in their striving to enact in their own lives Christ’s sacrificial love. On the submenu to the left, you will find programs and resources to help men grow closer to Christ and the Church and to support on another in a life of following Christ.
