Readers may recall some of my previous columns that featured quotes from, and writings of, Father James Farfaglia — formerly with the Legionaries of Christ and currently a priest of the Diocese of Corpus Christi, Texas. He is also the spiritual advisor to Hope House, a home for unwed mothers, and was recently appointed to the board of directors of Human Life International.

Father James has authored and published a book titled Man to Man: A Real Priest Speaks to Real Men about Marriage, Sexuality and Family Life. All proceeds from the book's sales will go toward the founding of a Catholic elementary school in the diocese. Click here to see Father's official Web site for Man to Man.
