Episode 23: How Every Man Should Lead The Spirituality of His Family

In this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, John and Sam discuss the role of a husband and father as the spiritual head of the family. Through the conversation, they challenge men to take a more active role in fostering a vibrant domestic church and provide tangible steps on how this can be achieved. True manliness is not about assuming a passive or subservient role in matters of your family’s faith. True manliness is about having the courage to charitably plan and guide.

In this episode we discuss;

  • The unfortunate passivity lived in the lives of many modern husbands and fathers
  • Non-negotiable spiritual practices to take as a family
  • Negotiable spiritual disciplines that are filled with meaning and are great traditions
  • Overall atmosphere that can help in your domestic church
  • And more

    Thank you for the show about family devotionals. Our children are grown now, our youngest just left for college last weekend. We still do this every morning. We start with a prayer at the crucifix in our bedroom, then we stop at each of the kids rooms, make the sign of the cross at their door, and ask for blessings on them.

    One of the other things we do is every year on Epiphany we get blessed chalk from our church and bless the door lintels of our house with 20+C+M+B+21

      Hey David, Yes, these are great practices. Thank you for sharing. We are blessed that our parish offers the Epiphany chalk every year as well. What a great devotion and continual opportunity to evangelize to house guests/neighbors/etc..
