In the past twenty years or so, many works concerning the renewal of manliness have been published by social scientists, pop psychologists, etc. Wild at Heart and “Wimps and Barbarians” rank among the more well-known titles, the former’s popularity reaching to nearly all corners of Christian churches in the United States. Surprisingly, however, the loss of manliness is not listed in the Bishops’ document as one of the problems for marriage and family,...

English lacks the differentiation of the word ‘know’ like that of ‘saber’ and ‘conocer’ of Spanish. In Spanish, ‘saber’ refers to a knowledge of places, things, and ideas, whereas, ‘conocer’ refers to a familiarity with persons. I make mention of this differentiation in Spanish to illustrate Dubay’s same dichotomy in his Authenticity: We may distinguish two types of knowing: one is particular, specific, thing-centered, while the...

St. Paul’s teaching on subordination has met with considerable public backlash since the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Questions abound as to whether the teaching itself is even based on the message of Jesus, or on some abstractions of Judaic or Hellenistic practices of running a household. Dr. John Grabowski does well to point out the differences between non-Christian cultures’ approach to marriage versus the way the early Church lived out marriage in the light...

The late Thomas Dubay S.M. wrote Authenticity in 1997 as an attempt to re-ground those interested in spiritual direction with both Scripture and Tradition, from which they had strayed by the influence of theologians disobedient to the Magisterium. A question worth asking in the light of Catholic authenticity that is inseparable from a posture of obedience is: If obedience is a necessary response that God asks of every person, how is that lived out in Dubay’s...
