Teaching Chivalry in the Daily Grind

Lydia McGrew at What's Wrong with the World asks, Will we be allowed to do anything for boys and men? The Franciscans of the Immaculate with their Summer Encampments and the year-round 24/7/365 work of Youth Apostles are seeking to answer her question in the strong, manly work and spirit of Saint John Bosco. (The priest pictured at the Youth Apostles Institute website is Fr John "Jack" Peterson, Director of YA and my personal catechist prior to my conversion.)

Chivalry isn't the clashing of broad swords and memorizing a code of chivalry alone; it is "doing the right thing," lovingly and cheerfully, in the daily grind. As, of course the Four Mass'keteers know.

To "K":

If you want to attempt efforts to discredit the Catholic Church at the 4Ms, you will find your heart-felt and neo-pagan "Ad Astra Per Aspera" comments won't even get reviewed. Try Mark Shea or Mark Gordon's sites. They will use very inappropriate dismissive #*X% language to reply to your troll comments.
