    Why your Parish Needs Men

    Why your Parish Needs Men

    Why do we need men in a parish? How do we form smaller men's groups? What should be the focus of men's groups? We talk about this with our good friend, Fr. Brian O'Brien.

    Men's groups should focus on:

    1. Events led by men
    2. Jesus Christ as the focus
    3. Emphasis on reconciliation and the Eucharist
    4. Catechesis with a male perspective
    5. A commitment of the Bishop and priests
    6. Build off of existing men's groups
    7. Hold diocese-wide events on a regular basis
    8. Hold frequent parish-focused men's events
    9. Incorporating "dad-kid" events

    About our drink:


    2021 Niles Krupnik.
    The skillful combining of a century-old tradition with modern production methods has produced an excellent liqueur, best drunk warm in the winter or on the rocks during the summer. Krupnik (pronounced KROOP-neek), is made of natural wild bee's honey gathered in forests, and exotic spices. It has an outstanding honey-sweet taste and spicy bouquet with a strong, warming effect


    About our gear:

    We continue reading Christmas poetry.

    About the Topic:

    Hierarchy of gratitude:

    God

    Our Parents

    The person that excels in dignity, from whom general favors proceed

    A benefactor from whom we have received particular and private favors


    Summa - the natural order requires that he who has received a favor should, by repaying the favor, turn to his benefactor according to the mode of each.[1]

    The grateful person sees reality as it is. Everything as gift.

    Francis De Sales – Intro to the Devout Life: Of poverty of spirit in the midst of riches.

    “There is a difference between having poison and being poisoned”

    Steps to growing in gratitude – Catholic Digest

    Prayer, prayer, prayer

    Surround yourself with people who are grateful for life

    Attitudes are contagious




    Materialism fuels our ingratitude

    Before we make purchases (planned or otherwise) say a prayer

    Instead of rewarding children with things, reward them with experiences






    Will this gift end up in the trash in a week?



    Refusing to forgive is a major obstacle to gratitude

    Failure to forgive places burdens on our soul




    Worry and Anxiety also lead us away from gratitude

    “Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6-7

    There is a direct link between screen time and anxiety




    Practice custody of our language

    Just like custody of the eyes. Grumbling or venting does not help, it is a consummation with our interior feelings. Stop complaining, be happier




    Regular confession

    Meditate on our Lord’s mercy




    Memento Mori

    Having Heaven as our context helps us be grateful for everything, especially our trials

A fine mix of witty & fundamental dialogue

Celebrating alcoholism

The show pushes alcohol consumption as a sophisticated manly virtue instead of the harmful vice that is kills men and destroys families.
