New Video from Diocese of Phoenix Explores “Society’s Crisis in Masculinity”

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 01/05/16

From the Diocese of Phoenix:

The Office of Marriage and Respect Life of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix, released for the first time ever in the diocese’s history a documentary-style short film that seeks to create awareness of a crisis in masculinity found in today’s society. Released only a few weeks after the promulgation of Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted’s apostolic exhortation “Into the Breach”, the new short film shows the urgency of the Diocese of Phoenix to confront head on today’s crisis in masculinity. With regards to this crisis highlighted by the film, Michael Phelan, director of the Marriage and Respect Life Office said, “Historical circumstances have periodically devastated families, but we have never seen the disparagement of masculinity and fatherhood, or abandonment of men’s responsibilities that we are seeing now.  It calls for an unprecedented response from the Church.” Earlier this month Bishop Olmsted said in a statement, “I encourage our men to discover or rediscover their identity as men in Christ.”
