The Catholic Tradition Podcast: Ep. 78 – Three Marks of Manhood, Pt. 1: Patriarchy Purified

Jun 19, 2020

There’s a nice want for Catholics to acknowledge the timeless
Biblical and Magisterial teachings in regards to the headship of fathers
over their households. But St. Paul’s simultaneous name for husbands
to like their wives as Christ loves the Church – that’s, to the
level of dying – is typically handled as an addendum when in truth
it’s the very essence of Christian patriarchy.

In his 2010 e-book The Three Marks of Manhood: Learn how to Be
Priest, Prophet, and King of Your Household
, the “father of
Christian psychology” G.C. Dilsaver upholds the pure and
supernatural foundation of male headship whereas describing the way it have to be
purified of pagan, dominating and egocentric components. The trail to
true Christian manhood is thru the crucible of humiliation.
Towards the notion of the rigidly masculine and “energetic” man,
Dilsaver additionally insists that receptivity is the essential situation of
the creature no matter intercourse—therefore the maxim of Catholic
mysticism that the soul is female in relation to Christ.

That is the primary a part of a two-part interview.
