Grace Force Podcast – Persecuted – How Saints Endure Crises in the Church

Persecution is part of the life for a Christian. The mystery of it and why it happens to even the holiest of Christ’s followers will always confound even the wisest of individuals. Our guest, Joshua Charles, digs into this topic and breaks down the lives and experiences of many of our brothers and sisters who have gone before us, having endured some of the most difficult and challenging forms of persecution, yet remained steadfast and relentless in their love for God and for souls. How can we do the same in our time?






Combat Rosaries for Heroes Inc.[1] will raise funds to provide a free Combat Rosary to as many of these heroes as possible. Father Heilman designed the Combat Rosary™ based on the 1916 pull-chain Rosary issued by the U.S. government during World War I. The Rosary is made of steel and features a gunmetal finish. The Combat Rosary™ is carried by the Pontifical Swiss Guard at the Vatican. Each donated Rosary will come with a protective leather zippered case so the sacramental can be easily tucked in a pocket.

Donate at[2]. Checks can be sent to P.O. Box 44036, Madison, WI 53744.
