This episode marks Catholic Culture Audiobooks’ 50th audiobook release - so who better to hear from than our patron saint, St. John Henry Newman? And to celebrate this milestone accomplishment, what better topic than that of “the danger of accomplishments”? In this sermon, Newman warns of the danger of separating feeling from acting. Let it not be said that we simply entertained ourselves, merely listening to - or merely reading! - the fine sentiments expressed in the great works featured on this podcast. Rather let us, as Newman says, “apply all we read to ourselves… from the mere sincerity and honesty of our desire to please God.” Here’s to another 50 episodes more!

"But the fight for our planet, physical and spiritual, a fight of cosmic proportions, is not a vague matter of the future; it has already started." Russian novelist Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn gave this commencement address at Harvard University on June 8, 1978. Almost line by line, Solzhenitsyn’s observations are prophetic. Especially in light of current events, Solzhenitsyn’s remarks are more clearly relevant than ever — perhaps even more so than at the time when they were first delivered. When men forget God, catastrophe for society is soon to follow.

This is the second half of an interview with G.C. Dilsaver on his book The Three Marks of Manhood: How to be Priest, Prophet and King of Your Family. Dr. Dilsaver discusses how the Christian husband and father must wield three staves: the scepter of authority, the crosier of co-episcopacy, and the cross of redemption. This last is most important, as the Christian patriarch's mandate is to lead in self-abnegation so that he may decrease and Christ may increase. The measure of his success is not in providing materially for his family but in teaching them by example to love God above all else and to suffer well for His sake. Contents The Scepter of Authority [3:30] Exercising one’s authority delegated by God is a duty in obedience and humility—but that means authority is not based on superiority in intelligence, goodness, etc. [7:06] Humiliation in the exercise of authority [10:06] Why modern men run away from their authority [14:10] Christian patriarchy as the greatest bastion against the overreaching State The Crosier of Co-Episcopacy [18:10] A father is his family’s spiritual leader and representative/intercessor before God [21:08] The need for an intense prayer life to be a truly engaged and militant Catholic man [23:49] The cloistered home—not to escape the world, but to enter the depth of reality [26:45] The father too must be devoted to the home [28:15] The prophetic role; practical ways of being the priest of the domestic church The Cross of Redemption [36:07] Rebirth in Christ through the experience of weakness and failure [37:58] Danger of father seeing himself mainly as material provider, not teaching family to suffer well [45:15] Critique of “suburban secular Christianity”, the problem with “coping” with reality [49:12] Familial asceticism: poverty, chastity and obedience in the home [57:51] Setting an example in obedience to the Church and, at times, defiance of the State [1:02:38] How the Cross transforms and fulfills romantic love Links The Three Marks of Manhood https://www.tanbooks.com/three-marks-of-manhood-how-to-be-priest-prophet-and-king-of-your-family-2.html Psychomoralitics website http://www.souldeepscience.com/ Psychomoralitics book https://www.amazon.com/Psychomoralitics-Soul-Deep-Alternative-Failed-Professions/dp/099936071X Celebrating God-Given Gender https://www.amazon.com/Celebrating-God-Given-Gender-Masculinity-Femininity/dp/0999360701
  He was a believer for little more than a decade, but in that time he managed to set one of the pre-eminent examples of Christian leadership. Before his conversion, Cyprian had lived the Carthaginian dream. He was wealthy and successful, but miserable and maybe addicted to drink and other pleasures. With his baptism came a transformation. Within a year he was ordained a priest. In two years he was bishop over all of North Africa. His years in office were a time of unprecedented crisis. His Church faced persecution, pandemic, catastrophic climate change, and famine. He managed all with grace and won his prominent place in history before dying as a martyr.
