Recently I attended the "Be A Man" talk by Father Larry Richards at St. Mary's Church. The straight-talking, no-nonsense priest said real men love, pray, and serve God:
The less a man expresses his love to his loved ones, the wimpier he is, said Father Larry Richards. 
"If you can't tell your wife and kids you love them, then you are a wimp!" Father Richards said during a presentation called "Be a Man" at St. Mary's Church June 15. 
Father Richards is a leading voice in reclaiming the Catholic male identity. The presentation is part of the archdiocesan effort, organized by the archdiocese's Office of Evangelization, to encourage male Catholics to rediscover their God-given manhood.
