Men on a Mission

I was looking at the Fathers for Good website this morning when I came across Joseph McInerney’s insightful article, Men on a Mission.  He makes the critical argument that men must look to Jesus Christ for our example if we are to find a different conception of happiness other than what our materialistic culture is offering.  This is good food for thought and something I encourage everyone to read and share.
