Bishop Olmsted Urges Men to Step 'Into the Breach' in Spiritual Battle for the Family
PHOENIX (Sept. 30, 2015) — The Most Rev. Thomas J. Olmsted, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix, unveiled a groundbreaking new letter addressed to the men of the Diocese of Phoenix titled, “Into the Breach: An Apostolic Exhortation to Catholic Men, My Spiritual Sons in the Diocese of Phoenix.”
Released on the heels of Pope Francis’ historic visit to the United States for the World Meeting of Families, “Into the Breach” calls upon men to embrace their masculine identity as fathers, husbands, protectors and spiritual leaders. Bishop Olmsted urges the men of the Diocese of Phoenix to take up the unique responsibilities endowed upon them and to love others in the self-sacrificial way to which they are called by Jesus Christ.
“Into the Breach” was promulgated at 3 p.m., Sept. 29 — the Hour of Mercy on the Feast of the Archangels. Bishop Olmsted said the timing of this exhortation’s release is providential.
“Into the Breach,” can be read in English and Spanish online at: www.IntoTheBreach.net
Behold the Man
by Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers
Lucid and inspiring, Behold the Man is a unique exploration of Catholic spirituality for men. Much of the literature written for Catholic men focuses on topical issues such as fatherhood and sexuality. While this book does not exclude these subjects, it is the first to present a comprehensive picture of Catholic male spirituality.
What is authentic male Catholic spirituality? What distinguishes it from Protestant male spirituality? How does masculine spirituality complement feminine spirituality? These questions and many more are answered in this book. Read more
