Frankly, anything Pope Benedict writes is far more important than anything I will ever write. However, I was g … [Read more...]

randy_hain

PETE: With all the challenges men face today, many of which you point out in your book Journey to Heaven, what do you think is the biggest one facing men today?RANDY HAIN: My answer might surprise you! As I travel around the country and talk to Catholic men, I am struck by how overwhelmed they seem to feel.
