#28 Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare

Churchill's Spies in WWII

This week’s story is about a daring mission done by the British Special Operations Executive to take down a Nazi criminal who was exterminating Czechs by the thousands.

It’s from a book called The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare by Giles Milton which is the best spy book I've read, but Beware! This book does have parts that needs to be edited out for young Catholic readers.

Why am I reading this story on our podcast? Because I think that reading about war is manly and seeing what hardknocks our forebears went through to keep the west free is truly beneficial for our soft generation.

#25 Nuke Prayer: The Rosary

Why We Pray the Rosary

“The Rosary is the Weapon for these times” - St. Padre Pio.

I can’t believe I haven’t talked about the Rosary on this podcast yet.

However, I can assure you that once you finish this show you’ll understand the great importance that the Rosary has in a Catholic’s daily life.

Also, can you pray it during mass? Let’s find out.

#24 Goodbye Cuba

A Wild Ride Escaping from Communist Paradise

People fleeing from Venezuela? That sounds like when people fled Cuba back when Fidel took over and it turned socialist/communist.

The story that I found last night left me speechless at seeing what people go through to escape Commie Cuba. I say, "go through," because people are still escaping from there.

The story is from a book called “True Stories of Great Escapes,” compiled by Readers Digest. All of them are just stunning, including this one.

#23 Heroic Purity

Take Courage and Be Pure of Heart

When you're felling low from fighting in our impure world, this show will help you press the attack!

This week, we're reading stories from "The Catechist" by Canon G.E. Howe. They show the dangers of not obeying the sixth and ninth commandments and also the joy of staying pure and clean of heart.

I know all can benefit from these beautiful stories and with them, we can make a counter culture against the filth of the modern world.

#19 Stalking the General: Part 1

Exploits of Sniper Legend Carlos Hathcock

Part 1 of 2.

What real man doesn't like a good sniper story?

The best one I've ever heard has to be from the book, "Marine Sniper" by Charles Henderson. It shows the mud crawling, ghillied up, shoot 'em up exploits of the Marine Corps sniper legend, Carlos Hathcock. He laid the ground for all modern snipers today.

If you're thinking of buying the book, be sure to have it edited for foul language because there's plenty. However, there will definitely be none of that on my podcast.
