Men’s Conference summarized in “Joseph”

November 30, 2011

The Christmas edition of “Joseph,” the quarterly magazine of the Pennsylvania Province of the Oblates of St Joseph, features (on Page 3) a summary of our recent Men’s Conference held at the OSJ Seminary in Laflin.  We are truly grateful to Fr Paul McDonnell OSJ for his hospitality and support of the Guardian of the Redeemer CMF.

Cdl Wojtyła’s man-talk

November 1, 2011

Bd John Paul II didn’t write directly and specifically to men a lot.  He wrote a Letter to Women and an encyclical on women.  He wrote several documents for families, in which he sometimes addressed ‘man’ issues.  However, I recently acquired an out-of-print book which contains a retreat talk given to Polish college guys by Cardinal Wojtyła.  It highlights some interesting aspects about men, and might prove to be a useful discussion tool for a parish men’s group.  Since it’s out-of-print, I guess it’s OK for me to make that chapter available in this pdf.  Enjoy!
