Excellent, practical advice for men seeking to grow in virtue
Awesome podcast! As a guy who is always desiring to improve his relationship with God the Father, the BattleRations podcast has been a great resource. Marco has hosted some terrific guests who have provided key insights into what it means to be a Catholic man.
This is a podcast that every Catholic and Christian man needs to hear. Our job as Christian men is always under attack. These kind of conversations are so greatly needed in this trying time. Thank you Marco!
Not just for men!
This podcast is incredible! It not only serves men but women can absolutely relate to every piece of advice, and nuggets of wisdom. I appreciate the practical applications to life. Things that we can do in the little moments of our day. The guests are remarkable men of faith but they’re relatable and authentic. As a mother of 5 (with one on the way), I am able to listen to the episodes in little bits here and there when I’m running errands and such. I love hearing not only where the guests’ faith began and the re-version experiences they’ve had but also how they’ve leaned on their Catholic faith with sacramentals, prayers, the saints, the angels, devotions and all the things that you and I can lean on as well! The host is pretty amazing too!
