The First official BATTLE READY Training
Day - B.R.T.D. - took place in Februaruy at St. James Catholic Church in Omaha NE. It was a great day! Thank God for the phenomenal turnout and response.
This is the kind of discussion that is completely brand new to some people
and carries some very heavy subject matter.
But it is needed!
I want to thank Fr. Michael Voithofer from St. James for his excellent talks and spiritual leadership during the event. He gave a very clear understanding of the need for us to recognize that the world we live in "is not business as usual". He reminds ALL of us that we MUST go deeper into preparation and training to be ready for the battle and that this must be done spiritually as well as physically!
There are things happening in the world both nationally and internationally that should concern us all very much. There are discussions that need to be had and action taken so that we can be better prepared to more effectively deal with and respond to both the moral and physical threats that are increasing. It is the most Christian and responsible thing to do. It is no longer business a usual in our world.
What will you do?
I will be posting information from the B.R.T.D. as well as video from the event on our TRAIN And PREPARE page throughout the week. I encourage you to share this information with as many people as possible.
Do not delay! Others are counting on you. Think of those that God has entrusted to your care or those that you influence and impact. Our inactivity in the face of threats to our faith and our lives carries with it destructive and terrifying consequences.
Gear up and prepare for the battle!
BATTLE READY Minute - Where Is Your Treasure
More and more of us are shocked less and less these days by the signs of the moral decline in our world. Instead of shock many are hovering somewhere between deep sadness and outrage. Some are feeling both and everything in between.
This is understandable.
As we continue to see the unraveling all around us and the ingredients of a perfect storm are more clearly revealed, never lose sight of where we need to be as Catholics who are prepared for the fight in both the natural and spiritual realms.
There is a very real sense that many have, that there is a heaviness in the air. It is no longer "business as usual" with regards to the way the world is going. It should not be "business as usual" in the way we behave as Catholics!
It can never be said enough that we should be making use of the sacraments of Confession and Holy Communion far more frequently. We should be praying the Rosary daily and fasting in some way with greater intensity. We have been told over and over by the Church, in scripture and by the miraculous apparitions of Our Blessed Mother, that these are the means by which we bring about conversion, peace and order in our lives and in the world.
These are the greatest weapons that we have against the forces of evil and we in this world are being overwhelmed by the forces of evil!
It is also important to pay attention to the signs of the times in the natural sense and respond accordingly. It is the responsible thing to do to have a plan that is prayed about and carefully considered in order to care for the needs of others, especially those that God has entrusted to our care.

THE WARNINGS HAVE BEEN CLEAR AND NUMEROUS
Our Silence Is An Insult To GOD!
In 2015 Bishop Thomas Olmsted wrote an apostolic exhortation to Catholic men called INTO THE BREACH. This is a powerful challenge and instructional guide that will help ALL men understand more completely the lay of the battle field. CLICK HERE to dive into this handbook for the fight.
What Did You Do Today To Fight For Your Soul And The Souls That You Love?
The devil does not sleep. He has been observing mankind for thousands of years. His attacks/temptations come in different ways and with different intensity. Our souls and the souls of those that we love are always targets for the attacks and snares of the devil. The best weapons that we have to fight against the temptations of the world, the flesh and the devil are those that we have been given by God. Prayer, Sacraments, Fasting, Sacred Scripture, Sacramentals and more should be an integral part of our daily lives. Use these powerful weapons everyday to fight for your soul and for those you love or who have been given to your care.
Every day, without fail, we should be thinking about and focusing on our salvation!
