The practical strategies of Catholic men used to defend, engage, and persist in the battle for souls.
called to brotherhood
You are called to engage, to defend, and to persist.
There’s never been a more pressing time in history for Catholic men to engage the culture we live in today, to defend our families, homes, and Church, and to persist – despite any obstacle – in drawing closer to Christ and leading those we love to heaven.
For us to fight however, we need sustenance. We need wisdom. We need strategies and practical habits that feed our souls and reinforce our commitment. We need rations.
On September 29, 2015, the Feast of Archangels, Most Rev. Thomas J. Olmsted, Bishop of Phoenix, AZ, called Catholic men of all ages throughout his diocese to battle with his apostolic exhortation, Into the Breach.
In his call to battle, Bishop Olmstead asks, “What practices can help us to take up our cross and follow our King?”
Battle Rations was born out of a need to band together and identify the rations we require to take up our cross, follow our King, and push forward into the breach.
Through Christ’s mercy and truth, we are healed and revitalized for battle. In Christ’s mercy and truth, we become strong in his strength, courageous with his courage, and can actually experience the [joy] of being soldiers for Christ.
