"Raising Chaste Catholic Men" stresses the importance of moral formation, gives helpful guidance on how to navigate the hypersexualized, porn-riddled culture we live in, and even contains advice from chaste young men themselves! The appendix includes a list of resources and links to provide us with further tools we may need to help empower our kids to live chaste and holy lives.
One of my favorite chapters addresses the issue of a society that seems bent on emasculating men and boys at every turn. I can't say enough about this chapter and I wanted to share a brief quote from it:
"But there is something more subtle out there that traps our boys. It's a steady drumbeat of dismissal, disdain, condescension, and disposability of men's unique gifts, contributions, and innate masculine nature. I call this 'training men out of manhood', and it's insidious."
One of the things I kept noting while I read this book is the author's deep respect for the innate masculinity of boys and men and how we should be cultivating this important aspect of their nature and not trying to suppress it, or worse, attempting to "knock the boy right out of them" which our current "genderless" cultural landscape seems determined to do.
Parents, you won't be disappointed in this book. If you are trying to raise your boys (and girls) to be chaste, this book is one that you will turn to again and again. I highly recommend it.
