Masculinity, Marriage, and Sexuality to Be Discussed on CatholicTV Talk Show

May 28, 2010

WATERTOWN, MA (MetroCatholic) - On June 8, Fr. James Farfaglia will be interviewed on the live CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”. Fr. Farfaglia will discuss ideas from his book “Man to Man”.

Man to Man explores what it means to be a man and covers topics such as masculinity, sexuality, and leadership. The subtitle of the book is: A Real Priest Speaks to Real Men about Marriage, Sexuality and Family Life. Father Farfaglia encourages men to be everyday heroes.

Fr. Farfaglia felt a powerful inspiration to write the book after waking up late one Sunday night. He knew that he needed to get away to write the book and literally went away to an island to work on the book.

This is the Day airs at 10:30AM ET at and on CatholicTV. The show is rebroadcast at 7:30PM.

Father Farfaglia is presently the pastor of St. Helena of the True Cross of Jesus Catholic Church, in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Aside from his duties at St. Helena’s, Father Farfaglia has his own internet ministry. In 2002, he developed his own electronic parish. His homilies have been frequently featured on Catholic Exchange and Spirit Daily. Father Farfaglia is also the spiritual advisor to Hope House, a home for unwed mothers and he was recently appointed to the Board of Directors of Human Life International.
