What is manliness? Is it strength? Is it discipline? Is it courage? Is it power? 

“Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be one.” - Marcus Aurelius.

The opportunity for you to become a man has arrived. On behalf of Radix, you are invited to take part in a 90 day crusade for manliness called Reconquista ("Ray-con-keesta"). This program will you lead you through the steps necessary for self-mastery and strength of character. Reconquista is a version of Exodus 90, tailored for the young men of Saint Joe’s. 

There are three pillars for this program:

Prayer: Daily readings, prayer schedule, and spiritual guidance.

Asceticism: Rigorous exercise, self-denial, and detachment from things of the world.

Fraternity: Brotherly support and accountability.

These three pillars enable the participants to achieve the freedom of the sons of God.

For more information, you are invited to attend an informational meeting on Thursday, January 9 after Benediction at St. Joseph’s Church.
