Calling Men to Greatness: How to Reject the Vice of Effeminacy, According to this Priest

The Catholic Gentleman

How can men follow God’s call to greatness?

On this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, podcast host John Heinen speaks with Fr. Roger Landry at the Napa Institute conference.

The two discuss Fr. Landry’s call to the priesthood, Boston’s abuse scandal, and St. Thomas Aquinas’ teachings on effeminacy.

“We often associate effeminacy with men acting like women, but the reality, as St. Thomas Aquinas teaches, it is the vice directly opposed to perseverance and courage,” the episode’s description states.

“How does this show itself today and how can we as men reject this vice?”

The men also discuss these topics:

  • Why become a priest?
  • Religious vocations
  • The Boston abuse scandal
  • Removing effeminacy in a man’s call to holiness
  • Helping single and married men grow in holiness
  • The Eucharist
  • The lack of manly priests today
