What is a Real Man?

I found this Article to be of particular interest to me, and I feel it made some excellent points on Manhood and how it differs from Maleness.

"Men are wired to lead. They were created to lead. Robert Lewis believes that many men in our generation are refusing to lead and that they are "passively yielding to the feelings and emotion of the moment instead of aggressively leading with God's truth. Our homes and communities are in chaos because of it. Leadership demands that men have the courage to master their passions and bridle themselves with the truth... The courage to lead with truth rather than surrender to feelings always separates the men from the boys." Where do these truths come from? As Catholic men, we know our primary source is the Scriptures and the teachings of the Church. That is why it is important to spend time reading and studying Scriptures and Church teachings. That is why it is important to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with other men for support and encouragement."
