The talks at the 2014 Men’s Retreat sponsored by Christ the King Parish in Ann Arbor were given by Dr Edward Sri. His talks are available in their audio archive. I haven’t yet listened to them, but will surely be doing so in the near future. Here are the links:

When the highly esteemed Jesuit scholar and commentator on modern culture, Fr James V. Schall SJ, writes a positive review of a book by a professional athlete, I sit up and pay attention. Earlier this month, Fr Schall wrote such a review on The Catholic Thing website. His subject was John Stockton, former point guard for the NBA’s Utah Jazz, an NBA hall-of-famer, and a Gonzaga alumnus. John recounts his life for us in Assisted: An Autobiography, which was published two months ago. You can read Fr Schall’s article here.

Tremendous talk by Mark Hart. What an awesome speaker! Great blend of humor with sobriety. Authentically passionate at times. Presents some really important points to keep in mind when presenting the faith to the younger segment of our culture. Money quote from near the end:
Our salvation cost us nothing.
True discipleship will cost us everything.
From the “Defending the Faith” conference this past July at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
