I have been given a most interesting and exciting mission, to call my brothers back to LIFE. Today’s men are unaware of two very sad realities that interfere with our calling to grow as priests, kings, and prophets.
The first is within the Catholic faith. We are quickly being replaced by women. This doesn’t sound so bad. After all women have rights too. The problem is that men and women were created to serve together, not in place of each other.
As much as people claim that it’s a male dominated Church, the fact is that the only area of the Church that males dominate is Holy Orders. The truth is that the largest number of evangelists, among Catholics, are women.
The second group of men that is in trouble are fathers. Today’s dads have lost the most fundamental right and they are completely unaware of it. The Culture of Death is trying to destroy what God gave us at creation, our right as fathers. Our preborn children can be killed against our will and without our knowledge. They are no longer our children. They are a blob of tissue. They become our children, not at the moment that we conceive them and breathe life into them. Only when a court says that we must now pay child support, because someone else has decided that it’s a baby do they suddenly become our children and we their fathers.
Not only are the preborn children of today’s society being killed in the womb, but the Culture of Death is trying to come between God and men, by attempting to determine at what point men are fathers.
We need to come together as a community of brothers, united by our common faith that God gave us the gift of life. Part of that gift, which he has given to us as men, is our masculine identity and our masculine rights. The most precious of those rights is the right to be a father from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death.
Won’t you come and see how you can be a brother to future fathers?
