Male Spirituality
#42
Lisa, et al.,
You may like to read Masculine Mystique by Andrew Kimbrell. It is not a Catholic book, although Andrew is a Catholic, and you may not even agree with every viewpoint, and Andrew himself would probably update the book a bit, but it gives a great perspective on the plight of the western male. He takes things back to the ending of the commons (the enclosures) in the late Middle Ages, and how men had to go to the city for work. It covers quite a bit, including the things I see in my grandfather. No hugging, no crying. Distant. More men are in jail. More men commit suicide. Etc. It is an enlightening read, from my perspective, and even cuts a bit through the call for John Wayne like ideals, as though the problems of men can be solved if we just toughened up.

A taste: andrewkimbrell.org/andrewkimbrell/doc/masculine%20politics.pdf
"A time for men to pull together" on page 4
