If you have followed this show for any time now, you know that Dave Imhof and I are proponents of Bishop Olmsted’s apostolic exhortation “Into the Breach”. We truly are in a man crisis and masculinity is under constant attack by the principalities and powers of this world. In this year dedicated to St. Joseph the patron and protector of the universal church the need for a powerful saint has been answered and authentic masculinity has its hero. Joining me along the way to discuss Bishop Olmsted’s clarion call to all men is Michael Phelan. Michael is with the office of Marriage and Respect for Life for the Diocese of Phoenix and has worked closely with Bishop Olmsted.
Our spirituality affects the way we pray and conversely the way we pray affects our spirituality. What does that mean? I ask Father Joe Laramie SJ to help me understand how within a universal church there can be a wide variety of spiritualties. Father Joe Laramie is the National Director of “Popes Worldwide Prayer Network” He is also the author of the book “Abide in the Heart of Christ” a 10-Day Personal Retreat with St. Ignatius Loyola. This casual conversation covers some common sense approaches to praying and for me a chance to discuss a saint that I hold in high regards.

Evil wants to bind you to your past, accuse you now and leave you hopeless in the future. Today’s casual conversation may be the starting point for someone’s walk with Christ or it may be the reminder of what being a follower of Jesus is really about. Having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ certainly opens up a world of possibilities for us. That is if we are unbound to the lies that evil will have us believe not only about ourselves, but God too. Jesus is The Way The Truth and The Life, Trust in him and renouncing those beliefs about our sinful past will set us free, making us Unbound. Joining me Along The Way is Matt Lozano. Matt is the son of Neil Lozano, author of the book “Unbound”. Matt is currently the Director of training and leadership development for the Heart of the Father Ministries. Please join us as we discuss those thing that can leave us feeling trapped and strategies of letting the Holy Spirit work miracles in our lives.

Prayer is our interaction with the one living God that loves each of us beyond measure. Sometimes when we pray we feel like God hears us because the outcome of a situation turned out as we hoped. Sometimes though it seems like God doesn’t hear us and those that we pray for don’t recover by way of a miracle.
Joining me along the way is Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers. The Dynamic Deacon helps me to understand how prayers are always heard and answered even when the outcome is different than we hoped for.

Miracles, they are everywhere. Because God is everywhere we should expect them. I have to say that sometimes I am so wrapped up in life that I miss the little everyday miracles. Then when I pray for a miracle it sometimes seems like God doesn’t hear my prayer. Honestly I have been mad at God because I did understand his decision. Helping me to understand better is Daniel Schachle. Daniel is a true man of faith that has experienced loss and miraculous intervention.
Trust is fundamental to faith and that measure of trust can be what transcends suffering, filling those that hold on to that trust with courage and hope.

This episode is many things. It is a testament to my gratitude to all the men that have been a part of this dream coming to fruition. For me it is a step forward as I trust God, believing that God doesn’t always call the qualified he qualifies the called. I have always wanted to do radio, it has always been my passion, but Fear and uncertainty have always stopped me from realizing that dream. In a year that has been full of fear and uncertainty I decided to put my simple theology based in Divine Mercy and the mantra of “Jesus I Trust in You” to work. Soon the questions of how were answered and why became my inspiration and my motivation. For the love of Jesus and Mary and the glory of God this podcast comes to you.
This is a recap of the twelve guest that were able to join me along the during the COVID 19 pandemic of 2020 as we talked about manliness.
