Bishop Olmsted to Catholic Men: Start Being Men

(Originally posted on The Catholic Vote Blog by John White on September 30, 2015)

Bishop Thomas Olmsted of Phoenix has just issued an Apostolic Exhortation entitled Into the Breach, in which he basically tells Catholic men that they need to stand up and start fighting – for their Church, for their culture, for their families, and for their own souls.

While formally addressed to the men of his own diocese, the 23-page exhortation is a challenge to all Catholic men across America.  It is clear, it is engaging, and it is inspiring.

I’ve only begun to read Into the Breach, and already there is too much good stuff to share here.  Better that way – you should read the whole thing.
