Episode 38: Immortal Combat with Fr. Dwight Longenecker

In this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, Sam is joined by Fr. Dwight Longenecker to discuss why it is vitally important for a man to understand, live, and boldly confront evil as Christ’s clear example and constant demand. Avoiding a nonconfrontational, feel good Gospel is not the way forward or the teachings of the Church. This widespread approach has created a wayward flock that indirectly teaches pacifism and has damaged uncountable lives.

In this episode we discuss;

  • How getting knocked outside our comfort zone can lead to right action
  • How the Church calls us to boldly proclaim Truth
  • The damage to society at large by watering down Christ’s teaching
  • And More
