We have a choice: we can focus on our weaknesses or we can focus on God’s strength. We can make excuses every day of our lives or we can say, “Yes, I am weak on my own, but I am strong in the Lord. It is His grace that makes me strong.”
[Fr. Larry Richards, Be a Man!]
I must say that I was a bit skeptical about this book when I started reading it, fearing that it would amount to something like a Catholic pop-manhood manual. But it has so far been much better than I expected, with an emphasis not upon grunting or scratching or manly hugging and crying but rather upon the Catholic man’s life before God.
