Ministry to Fathers

{ Tags: None \ May31 }

I have completed two sessions with some of the fathers in a subdivision that is covered by our parish.  We started last week with a session on “What does being male mean today?”  This afternoon, I had two questions thrown at them:  “What does it mean to be a religious male?” and “How does the religious male show his religiosity?”  The session also included an introduction to the Book of Proverbs which I explained as one of the books in the Scriptures which was written specifically for males.

There was a suggestion that the group become Catholic Faith Defenders.  I like the idea too.  In fact, it was one of the ideas that motivated me to start the group anyway.  But I also explained that apologetics must derive from a Catholic spirituality that is “male.”  I don’t want to make our sessions degenrate into a mere exercise of intelligence.  I wish that my “wards” would discover that maleness has a spirituality.  Otherwise, our being in Church will not have a motivation that goes deeper than “respectability.”
