An Interesting Apostolate for Men

e5men.org

The e5 man by fasting for his bride imitates Jesus, the Groom, as described by St. Paul in Ephesians Chapter 5 (from which the e5 is named) The incarnate God, Jesus, makes a bodily sacrifice for his bride, the Church, to present her to God the Father "without spot or wrinkle."(Eph 5:27)

Basically men fast on bread and water the first Wednesday of every month for the intentions of their wife.
