    Kiss Them Goodbye!

    Kiss Them Goodbye!

    Episode 220
    There are 19-23 bishops that will begin a process this year to close anywhere from 60% to 90% of the parishes in their dioceses, so you can kiss these parishes goodbye. The guest on this week’s episode is a lawyer in an archdiocese who’s actively fighting these tyrannical episcopal processes now. You really need to hear this because this tyranny will be visiting you soon.

    The Great Communicator

    Episode 216
    This episode is a tribute to President Ronald Reagan for what would have been his 112th birthday. I strongly urge you to listen to what a real president sounds like.

    This episode is all Reagan. This week we won’t have The Sacred Heart Wins! with Bishop Strickland, the Catholic Bootcamp, Catholic Quotes, or a Catholic Story. Since more than 60% of you Sixpack Warriors are under forty, you really need to hear this. For you older Sixpack Warriors, you’ll really enjoy this walk down memory lane with Dutch Reagan.

A great American Rabbi(teacher)!
What better way to inculcate the Catholic way than from a Army Veteran. He’s showing me how to evangelize through his newly purchased lay handbook. Amen, Amen, truly a wise man!

Thank you for this podcast.

God is good all the time and this podcast is proof of this. You will never regret spending time with Joe and learning the One True Faith. Joe is a warrior for the faith and his six pack warriors.
