Today we are joined by a professional baseball player and Catholic gentleman, Michael Krauza. We cover such topics as setbacks in life, being cut from his high school team twice, devotion to Our Lady, and living for God's will in all that we do. Michael experienced a strong conversion in college and now openly talks to and about Our Lady while on and off the mound.
Today we discuss how the Catholic man must live simply. It is by rejecting consumerism and by turning away from more stuff that we open ourselves up to actually serve God's will in our lives. Our earthly possessions call to us, what conversations are we allowing them to have with us? We go into statistics, social examples, and truths about how living simply is necessary for our service to God and others.
Today we discuss how to be resilient in life as well as key ways to overcome laziness and acedia. Renowned motivational speaker, Jonathan Doyle, from Australia, joins us to talk about his life as a peak performance athlete and motivational life coach, as well as how to avoid letting sloth, laziness, or suffering ruin our lives. Learn how to overcome your weaknesses and be a powerful witness to the world.
Today Sam and John discuss how the world gets marriage wrong and why it rejects the true sacramentality of marriage. We discuss the difficulty of living out the vocation of marriage and we go into 7 practices that need to happen on a regular basis to keep your marriage strong, holy, and constantly filled with love. Learn and be a powerful witness to the world.
Today Sam and John discuss the dignity of work and how to balance the desire for career advancement with your faith. We also give great advice on how to get ahead in your career and discern changing your job. Pride, power, and pleasure are the ideals held by society with work, but it is by pursuing these ideals that we instead find frustration, anxiety, and unhappiness.
Today Sam and John discuss desk job burnout, depression, knife making, Poland and Ukraine, and finding God's will at work with award-winning blacksmith Leszek Sikon.

Today Sam and John discuss 12 of the manliest saints in history. We go into what we today can learn from how these incredible men lived. It is important to understand the character of these men, the times they lived in, as well as the lessons they teach us. We focus on how they lived their lives and why we should turn to them in various struggles we might face. Regardless of their history, they all lived devoted to God's will in a beautiful way.
We are joined by a former white supremacist and now a devout Catholic man of letters, Joseph Pearce. We discuss his conversion to Catholicism from a life of hatred, G.K. Chesterton, and why men must read poetry. Joseph shares with us the intimate tie between poetry and prayer, he clarifies our thoughts on truth and beauty, and drives home how poetry identifies and assists in the completion of an authentic man. Please join us in this conversation and deeper understanding to see reality to a greater degree.
