CMM’s mission is audacious: to help every Catholic man in the Diocese of Columbus become a saint. St. Irenaeus put it powerfully, “the glory of God is man fully alive!” That’s sainthood my brothers – becoming fully alive and becoming all that God intended us to be.
Pursuing sainthood is an adventure that none of us should miss out on, so whether you’re 18 or 108, single, married, divorced or widowed, know that this ministry is for you! And to help us on that adventure, we’ve taken St. Joseph as our special intercessor and example. A humble, courageous man who lived the roles of father and husband with heroic virtue, St. Joseph can inspire all of us, in whatever station of life, to be men after God’s own heart - men of mercy and men who die to ourselves to live for our wives, our families and our greater society. It is men like St. Joseph, that are so needed in the world today and it is men like St. Joseph that we must become.
Brothers, I hope you sense our excitement and how much we want each of you involved. Please join us with your prayers, your support and your encouragement of other men to make the journey to sainthood with you. Together, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!
In Jesus and Mary,
Matt Palmer, CMM Board President
