Christ the new Adam, in the very revelation of the mystery of the Father and his love, fully reveals man to himself and brings to light his most high calling.

In today’s world, masculinity is often portrayed untruthfully. On television, men are the goofy, unreliable husbands who need their wives to do everything for them or they are portrayed as having “only one thing on their minds”, sex. But in the eyes of the Church, men are created in the image and likeness of God. They have unique and irreplaceable gifts to bring to the family, relationships, society and the Church. The fact that the Son of God became incarnate as a man reveals something about the high dignity of masculinity. It reveals that a man has a special vocation to reveal the very love of God the Father for the world. The Church, therefore, has the duty to support men in their life of faith and in their striving to enact in their own lives Christ’s sacrificial love. Below are some resources to help men grow closer to Christ and the Church and to support one another in a life of Christian discipleship.

Note:  Men's Faith Formation is a resource page at the Archdiocese of Philadelphia's Office for the New Evangelization. The above descriptive information came from the top of that page.
