Analysis: The Non-Trial of Theodore McCarrick
Ed Condon
Catholic World Report

This article is an early speculation of how the Vatican might handle the sexual abuse allegations against Archbishop McCarrick as well as McCarrick's future status within the church.

Mentor's Handbook: How to Form Boys into Inspiring and Capable Men
Fr. Peter Michael Henry

Countless adults today lament the loss of our culture’s young men to drugs and debauchery, to drunkenness, video games, and pornography. The cry goes up, “Today’s boys will never be fit to be husbands and fathers!” Blaming boys is not the solution. Men are. Or, to be precise, men who help boys become the real men they are supposed to be. Real men crush evil wherever it threatens the good. They speak the truth. They love and protect the beautiful. In defeating bullies and in fighting just wars, real men ensure the safety and well-being of the innocent and vulnerable. How can we teach our boys to become real men? In these wise pages, Fr. Peter Michael Henry explains the process in detail. Using history, philosophy, psychology, sociology and sacred scripture – and a large dose of age-old common sense – Fr. Henry instructs every man who is a dad, grandfather, uncle, coach, teacher, or youth minister how to raise up even unruly boys into the heroic, virtuous real men our world so desperately needs.
