A new 30-day challenge maps out daily actions for men hoping to live authentic masculine Catholicism by reclaiming the identities of sons, brothers, fathers, and spouses, its creators say.
"This program is rooted in four primary identities that sum up masculinity … that all men share in the call to fatherhood, all men are sons, all men are brothers, and all men are spouses," said Chris Stefanick, host of EWTN's "Real Life Catholic" and co-creator of RISE.
"Not that [men] are all married and have kids, but those are the ways that we love, the ways that we follow Christ, relate to the Trinity, and serve the Church," he told CNA.
RISE is co-created by Bill Donaghy, a curriculum specialist at Theology of the Body Institute.
