Encountering Icons of Manliness in the Catholic Tradition
Episode details

Join me today to meet the manly saint who was J. R. R. Tolkien’s model for the king who returned to save his people, Aragorn.

Welcome to the Manly Saints Project, by me, Hugh Hunter.

We live in a world that struggles to understand the virtues of manliness. Our culture doesn't provide young men - or any men, for that matter - with a lot of positive male role models. When I became a Catholic, I wanted to show how the saints could be manly role models for us. My weekly exploration of manly saints became the Manly Saints Project.
