CF52 – Plus I Can Be Your Body Guard Too!

CF52 – Plus I Can Be Your Body Guard Too!

You are going to love this interview!

Fr. Larry Richards, author of Be A Man! Becoming the Man God Created You to Be, joins us on the show today. If you haven’t read the book yet, you need to! It is lighting a fire under my behind! And I am getting hungrier and hungrier for the Word of God.

This is from the back cover of the book:

In Be A Man, Fr. Richards recounts his own struggles to learn true manhood and he shares inspiring personal stories from men he has counseled and served in his decades of being a priest. The book encourages men to appreciate the differences between men and women, to focus on the right goals in life, to acknowledge one’s faults and admit weaknesses and limitations, and to be masculine without being “macho”. Fr. Larry asks: “Would you take a bullet if someone was raping your wife?” He thinks the answers might surprise people.

Fr. Richards does not apologize for where he gets his worldview. Be A Man looks at the biblical male role models of King David from the Old Testament, St. Paul from the New Testament, and“Jesus – the Alpha and Omega of all men.”“Jesus Christ Himself reveals to us what it is to be a man,” Fr. Richards said. “It is about taking the one life that God has given us and give it away. When men are invited to die for others, they put others’ needs above their own. To be like Christ, and like all great men, will cost men their very lives.”

The book is published by Ignatius Press and is available from the Catholic Company at

In addition to the interview, I also review one my absolute favorite Mac applications, 1Password. If you use a Mac, this is a must-have app. It is developed by Agile Web Solutions and is available for download at

I also share some exciting news with you. There are a few projects brewing here at the Catholic Foodie, and I would love to hear your thoughts about them. Listen to the show to find out more, but here’s taste… an e-cookbook, a 12 episode Catholic Foodie TV series on food and faith, and a new audio series on food in the bible. This is just a sneak peek at what is to come. Let me know what you think! 985-635-4974.

And don’t forget about the SQPN Giving Campaign! There are still a couple of more weeks to help SQPN continue to provide excellent Catholic content for another year. Thank you!
