Books For Catholic Men
As we prepare for Lent 2019, the best method I have found in giving up. or abstaining, is to replace what I gave up with something that grows my spirituality. And what a better way to do this than with a good book.

In the recent entry on the Catholic Chicago Men Blog are books that you might enjoy reading to grow in holiness, and to live the goodness of a Catholic Man.  Please take a moment to comment on the post what books interest you, or others you might suggest.

I know that since I'm giving up my smartphone for Lent, that I'm going to have a bunch of time to read (I got me a flip phone from CharityMobile for $20.00 / month with unlimited texts and a few hundred cell minutes)!  Something is telling me that once Lent is over I'm not giving up my flip phone ... especially at that price .. I'll be sure to follow up and let you know.

PS. Click the video below of Fr. Tom McCarthy, our keynote speakier for Bishop Perry's Catholic Chicago Men's Forum, coming up at the end of our Lenten journey, on the Saturday after Easter.  He shares how and why he gives up Diet Coke for Lent, I'm sure you will enjoy what he has to say ... and not doubt you will smile too.

The Restless Journey of Life: How are we as Catholic Men embracing the invitation and challenge to enter the journey? 
Our Vision: Nurturing Catholic Men's Spirituality in Chicago Southland.

Mission: Catholic Men Chicago Southland (CMCS) fosters Catholic Men in personal holiness, to make Jesus Christ the center of our daily lives. 
CMCS is a Catholic Apostolate of Most Reverend Joseph N. Perry of the Archdiocese of Chicago.  Executive Director, Frank J Casella

“CMCS has been a great help in my walk with Christ on a daily basis.  I am surrounded by secular surroundings everyday and CMCS brings me “home.”  This group of men keep me grounded and express charity and humility, which is not easy to find these days.  The opportunity to listen to the wisdom of Bishop Perry is always enlightening and helps me in my growth in understanding the beauty of the Catholic faith.”


“My benefit from CMCS comes from the community of men I gather with and, our shared, interests, desires, and struggles with leading a Christian life.  Our community helps me realize that I am not alone as I strive to be a servant of God.  In this age where we race from chore to chore, and responsibility to responsibility CMCS provides me an opportunity to take time and think about God.  A time to step back to think about where I am at, where I have been, and where I want to be in God’s eyes when I enter eternity.  Of course the wisdom and guidance provided to us through the words of Bishop Perry are as the commercial says ………….. PRICELESS.”
