"The Cross and Manhood" Part I
through destruction it rebuilt;
by tearing down it restored;
by emptying it fulfilled.
Are we men not called daily to endure the same trials?
By dying to self we shall live;
by destroying our vices we can build virtue;
by tearing down our prideful walls we can restore right relationshiop with God and neighbor;
by emptying our cup of sin, we can fill it with love.
The cross is inseperable from manhood, if that manhood is to be an authentic Catholic manhood.
