(LifeSiteNews) — Today’s guest on The John-Henry Westen Show is a young man on fire with the Holy Spirit.
Joseph Rigi, president and co-founder of Our Warpath, shares how his organization is working to equip young Catholic men and women with the tools to become great saints in a morally chaotic world.
Rigi says being Catholic is ordinary on the one hand, but also extraordinary on the other.
“There are millions of Catholics around the world who are Catholic or part of the Catholic Church. However, they don’t practice the faith. They don’t live their faith. Look at our American politicians like Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden … They promote things like abortion and homosexuality,” he says. “So again, to be Catholic is, in a sense, ordinary, but to be an elite Catholic is to be a force of nature against the world. A force of nature against principalities and powers is to be a Catholic who actively strives towards sainthood.”
What are the tools and resources Our Warpath is giving to young Catholic men and women?
“Daily meditation and daily prayer. Daily sacrifices,” Rigi comments. “We give people videos to watch, book reviews. We’re giving them everything they need to build on to be a great saint. And Our Warpath is about fighting. The most crucial battle is the spiritual battle. Because at all times, if we die, we need to be ready to meet our God when judgment comes.”
