The Raphael Remedy Blog

The concept of manhood being synonymous with godliness is not a concept that is largely supported in today’s culture. The culture is at war with the family, especially its youngest and most vulnerable members. Our boys are bombarded with harmful and enticing messages from movies and television, from the rock-music industry, from the advocates of so-called safe-sex ideology, and from the readily available pornography on the Internet.

As Catholics, we must educate our boys on God’s plan for healthy sexuality and relationships and to be honest, caring men and be respectful of women, loyal and faithful in marriage, keepers of commitments, strong and decisive leaders, good workers, and secure in their masculinity.

Listen to this podcast audio with Allison Ricciardi, LMHC on Relevant Radio’s On Call With Wendy Wiese as they discuss how Catholics can raise boys to be godly men in a confusing and conflicting culture.
