Ep. 8: How the Virgin Mary Makes Us Better Men with Dr. Mark Miravalle
How can the Blessed Virgin Mary help us be better men? We are prone to look for masculine models to imitate, and yet the constant chorus of the saints through the ages has been that the Blessed Mother is indispensable to a man's spiritual life. Dr. Mark Miravalle will help illuminate how the Virgin Mary can help us grow in holiness and be the men we need to be for our families, the church, and the world.
