BATTLE READY is an effort of the Camp Gargano mission to encourage and strengthen the body, mind and soul for the day to day battle.
It’s simple. As a man you were created by God to be a fighter, a protector, a defender. You say you’re a lover not a fighter. I say that if you love, then you will fight for what you love. You will provide for what you love. You will defend what you love. If you are a priest or husband/father then God has placed under your care other lives, other souls. If you are a young man who has not yet found your position then these days should be understood as a time of training. Most young men do not take this seriously which is why so many guys end up with messed up lives. Divorce, addiction, abusive relationships and destructive behavior are the obvious trainwrecks, and they’re everywhere.
It is your duty to fight for those under your care and that fight invloves much more than than just protecting them and providing for them in this world. The real enemy we face is an enemy of intense darkness. The fight we are engaged in is against a saboteur who seeks to lay waste to everything good and noble.
