Interesting Facts about the Battle

  • A young contemporary of Don John’s, Miguel Cervantes, fought with abandon and lost his left hand to a Turkish blade. With his remaining hand, he later penned Spain’s greatest novel, Don Quixote.
  • On another galley, a soldier of the Holy League, his soul torn with despair, took his sword to the ship’s crucifix. The blade instantly shattered. Many years later, an attempt to re-forge the sword was made, but when the new blade was pulled from the fire, it fell to pieces.
  • The crucifix on board the Real, which twisted itself to avoid a Turkish cannonball, is displayed in a side chapel of the cathedral of Barcelona.
  • Gianandrea Doria carried on his galley a gift from the king of Spain, an image that is now displayed in the Doria chapel in the cathedral in Genoa. Exactly forty years before the battle of Lepanto, the Blessed Virgin appeared to a peasant boy leaving a miraculous image of herself on his smock. The bishop of the region immediately commissioned an artist to paint five copies of the image, and he touched each one to the original. Our Lady of Guadalupe was present at Lepanto.

About our drink:

Michter’s Bourbon

Notes of oak, white pepper, honey, peaches and raisins lingered for a while in my mouth with the predominant flavor being the white pepper that brings a subtle heat and spice to the finish. This bourbon tastes like many young bourbons I’ve had from start-up distilleries with its light nose and sweet palate profile.

About the gear:

N/A – we didn’t have a gear this week since we had so much we needed to cover.

About our topic:

The topic of confession.

How do we help the priest, help us, during confession? Should you pray while in the state of mortal sin? How do you make a good confession after you have stopped committing mortal sin on a regular basis? Can you make a confession on skype?

High Five Spirits Mackinac Island Rum

Released in May 2018. Bourbon Barrel Aged for 8 years in old American white oak barrels. This Great Lakes Style Rum is blended in Northern Michigan using flavors like cinnamon and nutmeg and is finished with chocolate fudge from Murdick’s on Mackinac Island. Our handcrafted Great Lakes Rum is a warm greeting and friendly postcard from Mackinac Island, a sailors true paradise.

About the gear:

The American Flag was our gear for the day.

However, through the second segment, we tried and completed the #OneChipChallenge. Here’s what the website says about it:

The #OneChipChallenge is back and the new, hotter-than-hell chip looks as deadly as it tastes. This year’s version contains a blue corn chip dipped in an intense amount of black seasoning made with the infamous Carolina Reaper Pepper, certified by the Guinness World Records as the world’s hottest chili pepper.

About our topic:

The virtue of piety.

Here’s what Aquinas says on piety.

A special virtue is one that regards an object under a special aspect. Since, then, the nature of justice consists in rendering another person his due, wherever there is a special aspect of something due to a person, there is a special virtue. Now a thing is indebted in a special way to that which is its connatural principle of being and government. And piety regards this principle, inasmuch as it pays duty and homage to our parents and country, and to those who are related thereto. Therefore piety is a special virtue.

About our guest:

The Catholic Man Show - The Virtue of Longanimity

Fr. Bryan Ketterer joins us to talk about the sub-virtue of longanimity.

About our drink:

A 24-oz. bottle of Sam Adams Utopias retails for $199 and weighs in at 28% alcohol by volume. It’s a blended beer, aged in various bourbon and port barrels for up to 20 years. Added to that is the brewery’s wild ale, Kosmic Mother Funk, aged on Hungarian oak. The uncarbonated beverage is technically beer—brewed with hops and malts using traditional methods—but tastes somewhere between brandy and barleywine. There’s certainly nothing else like it on the market, and less than 15,000 bottles were made. If you want to taste something unique, I would recommend buying a bottle with friends. The 24 ounces can easily satisfy the curiosity of a dozen drinkers after a big hearty meal. Or if dropping two benjamins is no big, buy a bottle as a gift to make a big impression. Even your snobby Cognac drinkers will be surprised this is beer.

About the gear:

What do you get a priest for a special occasion? Do you get them a crucifix? A rosary? Do you spend a lot or get something modest? We ask Fr. Bryan Ketterer to give us some tips when shopping for a priest.

About our topic:

Definition:

Extraordinary patience under provocation or trial. Also called long-suffering. It is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit. It includes forbearance, which adds to long-suffering the implication of restraint in expressing one’s feelings or in demanding punishment or one’s due. Longanimity suggests toleration, moved by love and the desire for peace, of something painful that deserves to be rejected or opposed. (Etym. Latin longus, long + animus, soul, spirit, mind: longanimitas, long suffering, patience, forbearance.)

The Catholic Man Show - The Virtue of Vengeance

The Catholic Man Show - The Virtue of Vengeance

September 13, 2019

Adam and David talk about vengeance in this week’s episode. Is it lawful? Is it a special virtue? And the 4 sins that cry to Heaven for Vengeance

This episode on vengeance is sponsored by Covenant Eyes. Use promo code “catholicman” to get a 30-day free trial in protecting you and your family from the dangers of the internet.

Do you benefit from our show? Want to help see it continue to grow? Would you like to see more guests in studio? If so, please consider joining us on Patreon. As little as $4/mo makes a big difference. Many hands make light work.

About our drink:

Thank you to Mr. Taylor Barranco for the drink. Fireside Whiskey is a 4 year aged Straight Bourbon that is a nice bourbon to have in your cabinet. It is dangerously smooth but still maintains all of the robust flavor gained from aging for more than 4 years in brand new white oak barrels. A nice end of summer dram.

About the gear:

miter saw (also known as a “mitre” outside of the United States) is a saw used to make accurate crosscuts and miters in a workpiece by pulling a large backsaw or a mounted circular saw blade down onto a board in a quick motion. Miter saws are commonly referred to as drop saws and abrasive cut off saws are referred to as a chop saw.

Find out more here.

About our topic:

WHETHER VENGEANCE IS LAWFUL?

 I answer that, Vengeance consists in the infliction of a penal evil on one who has sinned. Accordingly, in the matter of vengeance, we must consider the mind of the avenger. For if his intention is directed chiefly to the evil of the person on whom he takes vengeance, and rests there, then his vengeance is altogether unlawful: because to take pleasure in another’s evil belongs to hatred, which is contrary to the charity whereby we are bound to love all men. Nor is it an excuse that he intends the evil of one who has unjustly inflicted evil on him, as neither is a man excused for hating one that hates him: for a man may not sin against another just because the latter has already sinned against him, since this is to be overcome by evil, which was forbidden by the Apostle, who says (Rom. 12:21): Be not overcome by evil, but overcome evil by good.

If, however, the avenger’s intention be directed chiefly to some good, to be obtained by means of the punishment of the person who has sinned (for instance that the sinner may amend, or at least that he may be restrained and others be not disturbed, that justice may be upheld, and God honoured), then vengeance may be lawful, provided other due circumstances be observed. 

WHETHER VENGEANCE IS A SPECIAL VIRTUE?

I answer that, As the Philosopher states (Ethic. ii. 1), aptitude to virtue is in us by nature, but the complement of virtue is in us through habituation or some other cause. Hence it is evident that virtues perfect us so that we follow in due manner our natural inclinations, which belong to the natural right. Wherefore to every definite natural inclination there corresponds a special virtue. Now there is a special inclination of nature to remove harm, for which reason animals have the irascible power distinct from the concupiscible. Man resists harm by defending himself against wrongs, lest they be inflicted on him, or he avenges those which have already been inflicted on him, with the intention, not of harming, but of removing the harm done. And this belongs to vengeance, for Tully says (loc. cit.) that by vengeance we resist force, or wrong, and in general whatever is obscure* (i.e. derogatory), either by self-defense or by avenging it. Therefore vengeance is a special virtue.

WHETHER VENGEANCE SHOULD BE WROUGHT BY MEANS OF PUNISHMENTS CUSTOMARY AMONG MEN? 

I answer that, Vengeance is lawful and virtuous so far as it tends to the prevention of evil. Now some who are not influenced by motive of virtue are prevented from committing sin, through fear of losing those things which they love more than those they obtain by sinning, else fear would be no restraint to sin. Consequently vengeance for sin should be taken by depriving a man of what he loves most. Now the things which man loves most are life, bodily safety, his own freedom, and external goods such as riches, his country and his good name. Wherefore, according to Augustine’s reckoning (De Civ. Dei xxi.), Tully writes that the laws recognize eight kinds of punishment: namely, death, whereby man is deprived of life; stripes, retaliation, or the loss of eye for eye, whereby man forfeits his bodily safety; slavery, and imprisonment, whereby he is deprived of freedom; exile, whereby he is banished from his country; fines, whereby he is mulcted in his riches; ignominy, whereby he loses his good name.

4 sins that cry to Heaven for Vengeance

1.       Murder – “the blood of able”

2.      Sodomy – “the sins of the Sodomites”

3.       Oppression of the poor – “cry of the people oppressed in Egypt”

4.      Injustice to the wage earner – not paying wages owed

a. Dt 24:14-15 – 14 You shall not withhold the wages of poor and needy laborers, whether other Israelites or aliens who reside in your land in one of your towns. 15 You shall pay them their wages daily before sunset, because they are poor and their livelihood depends on them; otherwise they might cry to the Lord against you, and you would incur guilt.

About our topic:

The Cycle of the Christian Life

Meeting Jesus is the beginning of new life. From this encounter, we are free to choose whether we follow Him or return to our former lives. If we follow, we become converted, bit by bit, to be like Him. This allows us to enter into shared lives of love with Him, a state we call communion. Those who enter communion with Christ have everything (the summit of the spiritual life), but they cannot keep it to themselves or it will die. From communion we must go on mission to help others to meet Christ. In this passing on of the Faith, the cycle begins anew both for the one sharing and the one hearing. This is the fundamental cycle of the Christian life, and the way of eternal life handed down by the Apostles: Encounter, Conversion, Communion, and Mission.

Questions covered on Friendship:

  • 22:43 – I am a recent empty nester and now I’m trying to reestablish a friendship with my beautiful wife. Any tips? 
  • 32:23 – Is there still hope for authentic friendship in the overly sexualized world today? How can I make new friends? 
  • 45:55 – What is Jesus’ role in friendship? Also, how can I maintain strong long-distance friendships? 
  • 51:08 – We just moved to this area and spent about 2 years trying to make friends. We did finally find a parish family, but it took some time! 

Questions covered on Fatherhood:

  • 14:32 – What is the best way to help our kids set goals? Do you agree with the approach “heaven, not Harvard?” 
  • 21:09 – I am a new father, for the last month. Right now, my wife is tired, so I have been doing most of the household chores. How can I talk to her about doing more around the house? I work all day and then come home and I’m basically still working. 
  • 32:25 – I think sacrificing in a sacramental marriage is love. There is biblical evidence for this kind of masculinity. 
  • 38:06 – I am a father of 9 and I have some suggestions for the young father on the line. I took over cooking for my wife and just found easy ways to make simple meals. Take time to listen to your wife every day, even if it’s the same conversation as the day before. 
  • 42:57 – What are your thoughts on a relationship with a Catholic and a Protestant, when the Protestant would be the father and spiritual leader of the family? 
  •  47:45 – My priest told me that my job was to help my wife and children become saints and that changed my whole outlook on being a father and a husband. 

A special thank you to Cy Kellett, Nick Chamberlin, Darin Delozier, and the whole Catholic Answers team for their help in making this happen. We had a great time and really enjoyed it.

About our drink:

Bernheim Kentucky Straight Whiskey

At its launch, Bernheim Original Straight Wheat Whiskey was the first truly new variety of American straight wheat whiskey introduced since Prohibition. Heaven Hill Master Distillers saw an opportunity to give today’s whiskey connoisseurs a unique taste experience. Bernheim was the only straight whiskey to use winter wheat as the primary grain in its mashbill, giving it a soft, sweet flavor and medium finish.

Today, on the front of the bottle, Bernheim proudly displays its finest attributes: Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey, small batch, and a 7 year age statement. With an age statement of 7 years, Bernheim Original Wheat Whiskey truly is well worth the wheat. It is the only straight wheat whiskey distributed nationally. As a straight whiskey, it meets the same criteria as Bourbon or rye—aged a minimum of two years in new, charred oak barrels, distilled at less than 160 proof, and contains no coloring, flavoring or blending agents. As a small batch product, it is made with a dump of 100 barrels or less.

About our drink:

Cody Road Single Barrel Bourbon

Buffalo Bill Cody lived life large. Born just a mile from our distillery, we honor his legend with a BIG whiskey. This limited wheated bourbon is hand-selected one barrel at a time. Bottled at barrel proof of 105, we encourage you to live life large the Cody Road way.

Grain bill

70% corn, 20% wheat, 10% barley

Serving style

Add a splash of water or an ice cube to bring out the big flavor. Outstanding in classic cocktails like an Old Fashioned or a Julep.

Tasting notes

Bold vanilla and caramel soar out of this high proof bourbon. The sweetness of corn gives way to buttery wheat and a unique finish of roasted nuts and toffee

About the gear:

Paracord.

Parachute cord (also paracord or 550 cord when referring to type-III paracord) is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of parachutes. This cord is useful for many other tasks and is now used as a general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians. This versatile cord was used by astronauts during the 82nd Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.[1]

The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a relatively smooth texture. The all-nylon construction makes paracord fairly elastic.

Current technical standards for the manufacture of cord for use in parachutes are published by the Parachute Industry Association. The US military MIL-C-5040H standard required the material to be nylon.[2] Similar styles of cord are manufactured with other materials such as polyester.[3]

The Virtue of Hope: How Confidence in God can Lead You to Heaven by Fr. Philip Bonchanski

The Virtue of Hope is excellent spiritual reading for everyone, an instruction manual for how to grow in hope and in bravery in the face of life’s challenges. It is a clarion call that hope must not be merely theoretical, but must “lead us to a deeper relationship with God, an encounter with the One who loves us and calls us to friendship with Himself.”

About our topic:

We try to lay out what hope is but also shows how we can exercise this theological virtue, through being daring, changing our ways, serving the Lord, struggling, suffering, and praying. We examine how hope directs us to our ultimate goal of life with God and gives us the strength and perseverance to attain it.

About our guest:

Father Philip G. Bochanski, a native of suburban Philadelphia, was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia in 1999.  In addition to several parish assignments, he has served as a high school teacher, chaplain for cloistered nuns, and spiritual director for seminarians. In 2017, he was appointed the executive director of Courage International, an apostolate that provides pastoral care to men and women who experience same-sex attractions and have chosen to live a chaste life.  He is an award-winning author, and has published several articles, books and audio lecture series on such topics as Church history, spirituality and pastoral care.

About our topic:

CCC 828:

By canonizing some of the faithful, i.e., by solemnly proclaiming that they practiced heroic virtue and lived in fidelity to God’s grace, the Church recognizes the power of the Spirit of holiness within her and sustains the hope of believers by proposing the saints to them as models and intercessors. “The saints have always been the source and origin of renewal in the most difficult moments in the Church’s history.” Indeed, “holiness is the hidden source and infallible measure of her apostolic activity and missionary zeal.”

And CCC 829 brings it home:

 “But while in the most Blessed Virgin the Church has already reached that perfection whereby she exists without spot or wrinkle, the faithful still strive to conquer sin and increase in holiness. And so they turn their eyes to Mary”:306 in her, the Church is already the “all-holy.”

About our drink:

Spey Trutina – A single malt scotch whisky. A well-balanced single malt from the SPEY range released in late 2016 (alongside their first peated whisky – Fumare) matured in bourbon casks. The name comes from a Latin way of expressing balance, and the whisky certainly falls in line with that idea. A release of 18,000 bottles.

About the gear:

About our topic:

The 7 Liberal Arts. Liberal arts, college or university curriculum aimed at imparting general knowledge and developing general intellectual capacities in contrast to a professional, vocational, or technical curriculum. In the medieval European university the seven liberal arts were grammarrhetoric, and logic (the trivium) and geometryarithmeticmusic, and astronomy (the quadrivium). In modern colleges and universities, the liberal arts include the study of literature, languages, philosophyhistorymathematics, and science as the basis of a general, or liberal, education. Sometimes the liberal-arts curriculum is described as comprehending study of three main branches of knowledge: the humanities (literature, language, philosophy, the fine arts, and history), the physical and biological sciences and mathematics, and the social sciences.

About our guests:

Andrew Pudewa is the director of the Institute for Excellence in Writing and a father of seven. Traveling and speaking around the world, he addresses issues related to teaching, writing, thinking, spelling, and music with clarity, insight, practical experience, and humor. His seminars for parents, students, and teachers have helped transform many a reluctant writer and have equipped educators with powerful tools to dramatically improve students’ skills.

Although he is a graduate of the Talent Education Institute in Japan and holds a Certificate of Child Brain Development from the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, his best endorsement is from a young Alaskan boy who called him “the funny man with the wonderful words.” He and his wonderful, heroic wife, Robin, have homeschooled their seven children and are now proud grandparents of eleven, making their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

About our drink:

Herradura Reposado Tequila. We want to thank the parishioner who kindly donated this bottle of tequila for TCMS. This tequila is double rested for unmatched taste. Herradura Double Barrel Reposado is the product of a novel, two-step aging process. The first involves resting the tequila in charred American White Oak barrels for 11 months. It’s then moved to new charred barrels and aged for an additional 30 days. This creates a rich, dark amber colored liquid and a smooth yet complex flavor profile not found in any other Reposado, with hints of cooked agave, vanilla, allspice, clove, and oak.

About the gear:

We had the assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach for OSU with us! Come on, we wanted to pick his brain on working out so our gear this week is a gym membership and/or a workout buddy.

About our guests:

Father Brian O’Brien is a priest of the Diocese of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma and pastor of St. Francis Xavier Parish in Stillwater Oklahoma.

The Catholic Man Show - Cigar 101 with Ultimo Cigars

June 14, 2019

Cigar 101 with Tomas Baldonado from Ultimo Cigars

Every once in a while, we break away from our normal routine on The Catholic Man Show to have a conversation with someone we think is a craftsman, expert in a field, and/or has an interesting story. Our guest, Tomas Baldonado from Ultimo, fits all 3 categories.

Many men aren’t sure where to begin when picking up their first stick. In this episode, we sit down with Oklahoma’s first and only licensed manufacturer of premium handcrafted cigars.

In the January edition of Cigar Aficionado Magazine, Ultimo Cigars was mentioned in an article entitled, “50 Factories in the U.S. that still make Cigars“.

Things you will learn:

  • Anatomy of a cigar
  • How to find a cigar that fits your palate
  • How to cut a cigar
  • How a cigar is made
  • Types of cigars
  • How to keep cigars fresh
  • How Tomas paired a cigar with a beer
  • and much more

About Ultimo Cigars:

Ultimo is a charming Micro-Factory located in the heart of Midtown Tulsa, Oklahoma, on the South-West corner of 31st Street and Sheridan. Home of the Scissortail Cigar, all our products are exclusively hand bunched and rolled by our master torcedor, Tomas. As we expand our business we will also expand our facility. We are looking forward to soon adding a large 1,250 cubic foot, walk-in aging room. Additionally, we will have the capacity to add 8 full time torcedores, producing up to 1,200 cigars daily. We welcome you to come enjoy an authentic, unique experience at Ultimo Cigars!
