Fostering Accountability

More on the Into the Breach video...

Accountability depends on trust and friendship, which should not be given freely to strangers but must grow in proportion to the friendship that develops; male friendship does not happen instantaneously, nor does accountability. Hence to create the conditions of stability and permanence that are required for the growth of friendship, one must devote attention to the political economic problems that destroy these conditions. Exhorting men to be friends with other Catholics and to be accountable to one another so that they can grow in virtue isn't enough.

Looks like the Diocese of Phoenix is really pushing this sort of thing within the diocese. For example, on January 30 there is a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the JPII Resource Center for Theology of the Body and Culture (FB), with keynote speaker Damon Clarke Owens, executive director of the Theology of the Body Institute.
