On December 4, 2023 for the monthly Manhood Discussions conference call we talked about 'CMCS Answers Your Questions'. The recording is about 30 minutes and full of nuggets that would enlighten you!
The discussion is based on this statement: 
CMCS is a ministry that helps men become strong disciples of Jesus Christ. Through CMCS, men will be formed and sharpened as witnesses to Jesus Christ, who are committed to serving him and willing to boldly live and share their faith. It is the mandate of every Catholic man to bring Jesus to a broken world. To live his faith and engage in this mission, every Catholic man needs a strong relationship with God that is rooted in prayer and the sacraments.
Catholic men need to proactively invest in their on-going faith formation, to be a part of a dynamic brotherhood that supports, sharpens, and strengthens them to be holy men, hus-bands, and fathers. This is especially important in today's society, where there is a growing secularization of society. Catholic men need to be intentional about their faith and how it impacts their daily lives. They need to be part of a community of men who are committed to living out their faith in a way that is both authentic and effective.
Notes from the recording: 
The nervous moments of silence during this discussion is intentional so that we allow the Holy Spirit to speak through us. This is a 'tool' that we use during the discussion at parish men's groups and at the annual Bishop's Men's Forum.
