On October 2, 2023 for the monthly Manhood Discussions conference call we talked about 'What masculinity means to us and why it is so important to us'. The recording is about 50 minutes and full of nuggets that would enlighten you on what is Catholic masculinity.
The discussion is based on this statement: 
A man who transcends his own ego, his own fears, and his own selfishness, and makes a sacrifice of himself as a gift to those he's called to protect. Men in their physical identity must embrace heroic self-sacrifice, because it is masculinity's job to protect life and be expendable. 
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.
