The Catholic man is an endangered species
Author provides a much-needed guide for authentic male Catholic spirituality
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 22, 2015 – God created Catholic men for greatness, but many instead have chosen to be purveyors of immorality and mediocrity. They have abdicated their responsibility to live as godly men and allowed themselves to become effeminized by the culture, turning their backs on the authentic moral teachings of the Church, especially in the area of human sexuality. There is a Catholic man-crisis that must be addressed now.
Drawing from Scriptural and magisterial sources that root male spiritualty in a covenant relationship with God and the cross of Jesus Christ, Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers provides a unique and comprehensive exploration of Catholic spirituality for men in his new book, BEHOLD THE MAN: A Catholic Vision of Male Spirituality.
What is authentic male Catholic spirituality? What distinguishes it from Protestant male spirituality? How does masculine spirituality complement feminine spirituality? Burke-Sivers answers these questions, and many more, throughout his book.
In BEHOLD THE MAN, Burke-Sivers, a self-proclaimed spiritual son of St. Pope John Paul II, shows men how to accept God’s invitation to life-giving communion through an ever-deepening revelation and discovery of Him via a life of sacrifice and service that imitates Christ crucified, meditates on God’s Word and responds to the Word in faith and, through the Holy Spirit and the sacraments, makes him truly a son of God and part of the Mystical Body of Christ.
“[BEHOLD THE MAN] is a theological and anthropological tour de force that champions authentic male spirituality for the men of our times,” says Father Donald Calloway, M.I.C., author of No Turning Back: A Witness to Mercy.
