Promoting the virtuous life.

The show is typically broken down into 3 segments - A drink, a gear, and a topic.

Why your Parish Needs Men
Why do we need men in a parish? How do we form smaller men's groups? What should be the focus of men's groups? We talk about this with our good friend, Fr. Brian O'Brien.
Men's groups should focus on:
1. Events led by men
2. Jesus Christ as the focus
3. Emphasis on reconciliation and the Eucharist
4. Catechesis with a male perspective
5. A commitment of the Bishop and priests
6. Build off of existing men's groups
7. Hold diocese-wide events on a regular basis
8. Hold frequent parish-focused men's events
9. Incorporating "dad-kid" events

About our drink:
2021 Niles Krupnik.
The skillful combining of a century-old tradition with modern production methods has produced an excellent liqueur, best drunk warm in the winter or on the rocks during the summer. Krupnik (pronounced KROOP-neek), is made of natural wild bee's honey gathered in forests, and exotic spices. It has an outstanding honey-sweet taste and spicy bouquet with a strong, warming effect
About our gear:
We continue reading Christmas poetry.
About the Topic:
Hierarchy of gratitude:
The person that excels in dignity, from whom general favors proceed
A benefactor from whom we have received particular and private favors
Summa - the natural order requires that he who has received a favor should, by repaying the favor, turn to his benefactor according to the mode of each.
The grateful person sees reality as it is. Everything as gift.
Francis De Sales – Intro to the Devout Life: Of poverty of spirit in the midst of riches.
“There is a difference between having poison and being poisoned”
Steps to growing in gratitude – Catholic Digest
Prayer, prayer, prayer
Surround yourself with people who are grateful for life
Attitudes are contagious
Materialism fuels our ingratitude
Before we make purchases (planned or otherwise) say a prayer
Instead of rewarding children with things, reward them with experiences
Will this gift end up in the trash in a week?
Refusing to forgive is a major obstacle to gratitude
Failure to forgive places burdens on our soul
Worry and Anxiety also lead us away from gratitude
“Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6-7
There is a direct link between screen time and anxiety
Practice custody of our language
Just like custody of the eyes. Grumbling or venting does not help, it is a consummation with our interior feelings. Stop complaining, be happier
Meditate on our Lord’s mercy
Having Heaven as our context helps us be grateful for everything, especially our trials

Catholicism, Radio, and Jesus with Cy Kellett
How popular Catholicism has changed over the years. What it means to carry your cross. Weird Catholic radio questions. And how to evangelize. We talk about this and more with Catholic Answers Live radio host, Cy Kellett.
A fine mix of witty & fundamental dialogue
The guys have found a niche show which touches on some fundamental & necessay topics for modern Catholic men.
The show pushes alcohol consumption as a sophisticated manly virtue instead of the harmful vice that is kills men and destroys families.
Great show - entertaining and educational
A perfect blend of entertainment and education about the Catholic faith. I highly recommend.
