The PAUSE program is quickly becoming an integral part of our existence here at Church Militant and St. Michael's Media. In fact, through smart use of resources and learning some lessons from our first year, we are now able to expand the number of young men from this current year's total of four to six for the same financial cost.
The need for well-formed young men who are spiritually mature and capable is enormous. We are looking for young guys who want to make reclaiming the Church their life's most important work. They can spend a year with us here learning, working and being formed as they discern what state of life they are called to for this work: married, religious or single.
The Church needs good men, men to be husbands and fathers, holy priests and dedicated apostolic celibates to resist the evil that has done so much damage to the Church. It needs men completely dedicated to the cause. And this level of dedication demands a solid prayer and devotional life. The PAUSE men are completely integrated into our prayer life here of daily Rosary, Morning and Evening Prayer, noontime Angelus, Divine Mercy as well a frequent Mass and adoration.
The PAUSE men come to work and pray and be formed here every day. We provide all this for them in exchange for their time and energy. It's a win for everyone involved, but with the ultimate objective being a win for the Church.
