Today I am beginning a new blog, “Men of Galilee.” This will be a daily blog, with updates six days each week:
Sundays: No updates; Priests should not be blogging on Sundays.
Mondays: “A View to the Horizon from the Galilee Shore”: Considering the meaning of events in our Church and culture for Catholic men.
Tuesdays: “Wise Men Still Follow Him”: Wisdom from Catholic men, past and present, to Catholic men today.
Wednesdays: “Priest to Priest”: Testimonials from priests in support of their brother priests.
Thursdays: “Interpreting the Signs of the Times”: Reviews of movies, books, art, and media of interest to Catholic men.
Fridays: “Men Preparing for Confession”: Practical advice for Catholic men in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Saturdays: “Men Preparing for Sunday Mass”: Understanding, participating in, and appropriating the full graces of the Mass as Catholic men.
I am offering this blog in my capacity as the Pastor of Transfiguration Catholic Church (Oakdale, MN), as the Chaplain of the Men’s Apostolate of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, and as the former Rector of Saint John Vianney College Seminary (Saint Paul, MN), who seeks to assist my former seminarians, some of whom are now following Jesus Christ as priests throughout the United States, and others who are now following Jesus Christ as young Catholic husbands and fathers, as professionals, teachers and lay ministers throughout the Church.
