Our society is a mess, and when you get down to the quick of it, you find the crisis of men not living their lives as good fathers. It's a sad truth that many in our society struggle to comprehend what it truly means to be a good father, let alone how to live as one. Today we discuss the one thing that makes a great father. This one thing is crucial for all men to know, not just fathers, because in understanding this you can start living your life in reality.

We hear a lot about the Good News today, but we do not hear much about the bad news. However, as Peter Kreeft has stated, without the bad news, the good news is meaningless. Sin is not spoken of frequently enough, glossed over, and sometimes outright ignored. We all know that the secular world champions vice and acts as if it is virtue, and while this complete reversal might not affect you totally, it likely has lessened the degree to which you despise sin in your life. Today we go into sin, what it is, what it is not, and two devastating ways that men often deal with sin in their lives. As we look to Christ on the Cross, it is necessary to understand how our sin has put him there and the mercy that is available to us. 🔴 🔴 Watch the extended addition, all 1h 30 mins of episode 152 on Catholic Gentleman Plus where we discuss the way out of sin in your life: https://catholicgentlemanplus.com ✅ We love to answer questions on the show.

When we encounter such individuals, we aspire to emulate their virtues, desiring a life that mirrors their example.

Why do we crave comfort so fervently? Jordan Peterson and Andrew Huberman have gained fame by dissecting the pitfalls of pursuing comfort. They offer a roadmap out of the rut many find themselves in, emphasizing the crucial role of discipline. Undoubtedly, discipline is essential, yet it alone cannot propel you to the heights of success. Today, we delve into why discipline, while necessary, is just one piece of the puzzle – whether it's advancing in life or battling demons.

Sin brings in its wake a barrage of emotional consequences and external damages. If the sin has long-term effects, we can feel substantial guilt and often shame for our failings and selfishness. This same thing can happen if the sin is habitual or uniquely toxic. How do you heal from shame, overcome guilt, and rightly order your life to avoid despair and frustration? Today, we discuss how men either become weak or foolishly arrogant in response to the shame they experience. We want to make sure you understand the difference between guilt and shame, the benefits they can bring to your life, as well as tactics to consistently move forward. ✅ We love to answer questions on the show.

Relationships are vitally important to our lives as men. After all, Christ told us to love our neighbor as ourselves.

Marriage is tough, it comes with incomparable joys, as well as intense sorrow. When two people, both fallen and broken, enter into a loving marriage they must expect struggles and sacrifices. It is through these challenges that their love will be purified and they become witnesses to a profound commitment mostly lacking in today's world. Today we read through a secular blog that offers reasons men should consider divorce, using this as a sort of bellwether of society to get to the right understanding of marriage and how this is all horrible advice.

Lent comes every year, yet often we struggle to create an effective plan to improve ourselves and refocus on Christ. During Lent, all men's minds should be moved with greater zeal to develop and expand on our spiritual disciplines, but how can we achieve this successfully?
