December 4 -- The BATTLE READY Rally


The BATTLE READY Rally has a mission: to help the Soldier of Christ be Aware of the spiritual fight, to be Prepared for it, and to Engage in it. We need more people engaged in the fight for souls. The world is in great turmoil, and each and every one of us faces in some way the attacks of the world, flesh and the devil. Each one of us faces the battle between good and evil on a daily basis. To be unaware of the fight, let alone unprepared for it, puts ourselves and those under our care at risk. Souls are in the balance and there is too much at stake to turn a blind eye to the attacks we are seeing on our families, on our society, and on our faith. Necessity demands that heroes rise up! We need deeper commitment and better execution in the way we bring the spiritual fight to the battlefield. We need to be instruments of inspiration and encouragement to others. We all have the ability to let God's grace work through us and spread courage and strength.

"To recoil before an enemy, or to keep silence when from all sides such clamors are raised against truth...such mode of behaving is base and is insulting to God..." –Pope Leo XIII

The BATTLE READY Rally is presented by Doug Barry, founder of RADIX – BATTLE READY Catholic Ministry and co-host for EWTN’s television program ‘Life on the Rock.’ The Rally is a talk that lasts approximately and hour and a half, beginning and ending with prayer.

U.S. Bishops on Health Care

What do they say?


English       Español

      The Catholic Church and Rights of Conscience

Catholic bishops of the United States called for a renewed effort to change the HHS imposed mandate that violates conscience rights & religious liberty. The Administration's “accommodation” still forces objecting organizations and individuals to pay for “services” that violate their religious convictions.

  • The original unjust rule has not been changed, but rather finalized.
  • HHS has promised some kind of “accommodation,” but only after the election.
  • The promised “accommodation”— even at its best — would still force our institutions to violate their beliefs.
  • There's no exemption for objecting insurers, secular employers, for-profit religious employers, or individuals.

St. Isidore Parish website provides links to resource and background information from the Diocese of Sacramento, the USCCB, homilies, and videos to aid Catholics in fulfilling their responsibilities as Faithful Catholic Citizens as Governments challenge the Church's Rights of Conscience.
