Podcast Conversation between Dr. Taylor Marshall and I on Jiu Jitsu for Mental & Bodily Virtue

Borrowed from Dr. Taylor Marshall's youtube description: "Dr Marshall (BJJ blue belt) interviews Dallas Carter (BJJ purple belt) about discovering Jiu Jitsu. We describe the mental and physical benefits of martial arts and debate whether Christians can and should do martial arts or watch MMA/UFC. If you do BJJ or are interested in it, listen to this episode."

Before Whom Angels Bow and Devils Tremble

“Nothing is so consoling, so piercing, so thrilling, so overcoming, as the Mass, said as it is among us. I could attend Masses forever and not be tired. It is not a mere form of words—it is a great action, the greatest action that can be on earth. It is not the invocation merely, but, if I dare use the word, the evocation of the Eternal. He becomes present on the altar in flesh and blood, before Whom angels bow and devils tremble. This is that awful event which is the scope, and is the interpretation, of every part of the solemnity." - Cardinal Newman
(Pic from Mass at St. Ann's, Kaneohe, Oahu with Fr Richard McNally, ss.cc.)
