As you have probably noticed I have been taken on as an advertiser for Catholic Men’s Quarterly.
Catholic Men’s Quarterly, a one-of-a-kind general interest men’s magazine written by Catholic men for Catholic men. Devoted to defending the Faith against unjust attack, clear and concise explanation of Catholic doctrine, and stories of heroic and saintly Catholics, CMQ is distinguished by its aggressive and humorous tone and the inclusion of other content of interest to men: sports, humor, travel, military history, etc. Whether you are practicing or lapsed, devout or disaffected, this is the magazine for you. So give us a try and treat yourself (or someone you love) to the magazine for Catholic men, the Catholic Men’s Quarterly.
In a sample article on Holy Hombre’s (“Hombre’ – noun. A man. A fellow. A man among men.”)
On a much later occasion, another Holy Hombre saved the day, during his time in the seminary no less. In 1860 St. Gabriel Possenti saved a young woman from being raped, and he saved the village of Isola, Italy, by removing the revolver from the hip of one of Garibaldi’s thugs. After more drama unfolded, Possenti took the opportunity to shoot a small running lizard with the pistol as the band of terrorists was coming upon him. These ruffians obeyed St. Gabriel Possenti and dropped their weapons, and then he escorted them out of town at gunpoint, telling them never to return. People of the region still refer to him today as “the Savior of Isola.”
Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati (1901-1925) is another great example of the Holy Hombre. This Blessed was born on Holy Saturday, and loved to ski, climb mountains, ride horses, wrestle, pull practical jokes, and swim. It has been reported that Pier Giorgio was involved in many fights, primarily with anti-Catholic Reds. Wouldn’t you know it… some holy rollers want to digitally remove the pipe from Pier Giorgio’s mouth which is in that famous picture of him on top of a mountain! Such folks want all the sizzle, but no steak. Pietests who would remove that pipe would probably synonymize sanctity with stupidity, if asked to define.
