CMCSVirtues Letter for Catholic Chicago Men
We run into people all the time who admire Jesus Christ as a good man from the past who somehow ran afoul of the authorities and was executed and has nevertheless endured over the long stretch of history as a figure of wisdom. But many of these same individuals will not hand their lives over to Him. Truth be told, Jesus Christ does not want our admiration of Him. He wants our discipleship. There's a difference. Discipleship entails a well thought-out, calculated, intentional commitment to Jesus Christ with a modeling of our lives after His life.

About Gun Violence Prevention to Protect Communities
On Feb. 18, Fr. Terry Keehan, pastor of Holy Family Catholic Community in Inverness, Ill., invited Phil Andrew, our director of Violence Prevention Initiatives, to speak about gun violence prevention.
Fr. Terry Keehan spoke of the shooting in Parkland, FL and the shooting of Cmdr. Bauer in Chicago and how these mass shootings are a societal problem. Which challenges us, as Catholic Men and a Vatican II people, to live out the commission that the church should transform the world.
In the midst of things like violence, we are called to be people of hope. Let's emphasize choosing, walking, and building Peaceful Pathways to address things that might lead people to violence.
At the video above, Phil Andrew, former lawyer and FBI agent, who leads the Archdiocese of Chicago's Anti-Violence Initiative, spoke on how we can protect communities.
