"Gifts after that they said grace and began their meal when it was over they conversed some more and then the priest went back to his church. Think that's a beautiful story. This encounter with a priest in the kafe still. The story is a little bit shocking. Because how could it happen. That benedict saint benedict could forget about easter. He was on the journey to follow god. And jesus more closely. How could he forget about the feast of easter and also the reaction that we read here. How benedict responded to the priestess. Kind of strange. One must admit that saint benedict in his rule has distinct and balanced way to speak about priests. There are actually tool chapters in his rule that are dedicated to this topic. And maybe i can't read them to you to summarize them in. Chapter sixty benedict says the admission of priests to the monastery if any ordained priest asks to be received into the monastery to not agree to quickly however if he is fully persistent in his request he must recognize that he will have to observe full discipline of the rule with out any mitigation knowing that is written friend. What have you come for. He should however be allowed to stand next to the abbot to give blessings sent to celebrate mass provided that the abbot bits him otherwise he must recognize that he subject to the discipline of the rule and not make any exceptions for himself but rather give everyone in example of humility. Whenever there is a question of an appointment of any other business in the monastery he takes the place that corresponds to the date of entry into the community at not that granted him out of respect for his priesthood and in chapter sixty to the priests of the monastery saint benedict's rights any abbott. Who asks to have a priest or deacon ordained should choose from his monks one worthy to exercise the priesthood. The monks ordained must be on guard against concede our pride but not presume to do anything except what the abbot commands him and must recognize that. Now he will have to subject himself all the more to the discipline of the rule. Just because he's a priest he may not therefore forget the obedience and discipline of the rule but must make more and more progress to god. I guess you can hear what sink bendix intention is. He must have seen priests in his community. Who kind of spoilt the community in the sense that they've found they have the privilege to go their very own ways that they would not be under the abbot under the rule under the discipline of the rule because of the priesthood and in this regard benedict is very strict interesting. So he he does not. You can feel that. He has a great appreciation and laughed. What's the eucharist into the priesthood. But still as as monasticism goes as the monastery goes. It doesn't matter if you are a priest or not first of all you are a monk. This is kind of the first vocation. I read this to you. In order to show that he has this balanced View of the priesthood. And now he in his biography saint gregory. the great. who was the pope tells us the story that a priest is coming and dining with saint benedict and again the astonishing fact. That benedict had forgotten about the date of easter. What's going on here. My assumption is that benedict had reached a point in his life where he was even in a way detached from the church. The church's task is it to proclaim onto to make sure that there is this feast of easter the solemnity of easter. So the calendar is so to speak a thing that is Task of the church to set the calendar say this is easter so when he has forgotten about this dated means in a way he has forgotten about the church and again this might sound shocking to us. How could he as a sane but in a way and and shortly i will show this. It was necessary for his puto journey. Why was it necessary. Because now he was able to grasp what church really means. What faith really means from inside from its tunnel source and origin. In other words he now does not celebrate easter only because the charts tells him to celebrate easter kind of as a in obedience to this regulation of the church but rather he grasps. The mystery of easter itself could describe this transformation as going from analog experience to an originally experience. What do i mean analog means you have experience and you need a transmission. You have learned it. It's an outward knowing so it's like when parents explain to their children things of the faith so the children learn it and.

"Saint Benedict, a spiritual path for today's world with Father Maurizio filthy. Father Maurizio did his philosophical theological doctoral studies in Rome? He is the author of numerous books including I want to understand you. Encounter. Inform worlds with the little. Prince. The new image of God's image. Meister Eckhart on image theology. Peter and Paul Models of decision making and on the way. Benedict journey for spiritual maturity. Other Marucci is also serves as the prior of Santo cell in Rome. The holy rule of Saint Benedict, the spiritual path for today's world with father parents usefully. I'm your host Chris McGregor. Welcome father macy's. Thank you for having me Chris. Of So blessed to be able to dive into this next topic, which I think is. One that while I just can't wait to hear how Saint Benedict would encourage us through the rule to contemplate. The many dimensions of the Holy Eucharist. Decrease I HAVE TO ADMIT I. Have to start with something disappointing. because. If you. Search the rule of Saint Benedict. Seeking for something on the Holy Eucharist. You don't find much. Actually you find almost nothing. So. This is disturbing. the first glance. I think we have only three little remarks. That show that the monks per celebrating the Eucharist at all. Think. About these. Long and many chapters on the liturgy of the our us in the liturgy of the bird. But almost nothing on the Eucharist we have and this is so it's it's it's so little that I can quote it easily it's in chapter thirty, eight, the reader of for the week. So it's interesting it's in this chapter that. Talks about table reading. In verse two, we have after mass and communion let the incoming Rita ask all to pray for him so that God may shield him from the spirit of vanity. Let's all and then in the same chapter verse ten because of Holy Communion because the fast may be too hard for him. The Table Rita to bear the brother who's reader for the week is to receive some diluted wine before he begins to read. Okay, and then there's the last remark in Chapter Sixty three community rank. So you see the topics, the topic of the whole new Chris appears in. In, strange environments. So to speak you in the end, the rule chapter, therefore when the monks come for the kiss of peace and full communion when they lead psalms of standing quiet the so in the audio decided by the Abbot and so on and so on. So what is going on here so the The SM- Theologians were Wondering. What was the practice of the Julio cursed at Saint Benedict's Times. and. What does it mean that he doesn't ride aboard it On not so much at least. First of all as I said Saint Benedict focuses. On the opposed today. The divine. oculus that means the liturgy of the hours, which is the bird. This is his main focus. But still the rule end the life of a benediction and of Saint Bendik. Are Very close to what the mystery of the Eucharist means. So I want to show how kind of indirectly the Eucharist comes in. One thing is that benedict. Wants to have everything in the Monastry Christ centered. It's all about Christ. US seventy to let them prefer nothing whatever to Christ. Saint Benedict's talks about the offering a young man is offered when he is brought to the. Monastery. He talks about the suffering of Christ. We had this in another interview. He emphasis very much when he august the liturgy he emphasis on Easter. USTA place important role. and. We know about his. On the meals so eating together sharing the meal, this is an important thing. So here you can see that. What we understand as the Eucharist. It's all there. It is not lacking not at all. We still may wonder why he didn't. Put down any regulations. On this for this. Topic. Historically. Probably the monks? Celebrate the Eucharist just on Sundays. So I mean when they started in the Sixth Century Fifth Sixth Century Either just on Sundays or even more rarely maybe. Just twice a year a couple times. Very. Seldom. Daily. So. This is what can get from all historical documents. The practice of the daily mass. Came into being. Centuries later. So it Saint Benedict's time. Probably, it was not the practice one reason why it's very simple. that. Most of the monasteries didn't have priests. It is very probable that Saint Benedict. Was Not a priest. So, this could explain. that they didn't have the Eucharist so often. Maybe just if priests was available. Anyway, the monks shape the way of their lives. By the word of God. Priority of the divine office I pointed to this already. Nothing is to be to prefer to the work of God and what I want to show you what I want to share with you today is. How this focus on the liturgy of the hours. Reciting the whole description. How this? Shape the way how the monks celebrate the Eucharist today because nowadays? Since a long time, this is a very. Beloved. Practice of monks to celebrate the Eucharist every day. And now we have enough priests to do that. So and this is what I mean when I talk about the contemplative aspect of dement dimensional the. Eucharist. And I'm Awale the fact that the holy Eucharist is so. Mysterious. So rich..

So work on yourself. See that you make progress. And that's enough. will. Fall in place just by grace. But as long as you are on the journey as long as you listen as long as. You. Your journey is. Controlled in a sense under the control of Christ. Then you will. Be a good leader as well. And don't have to worry about that you do. Everything right. I'm reminded of something mother Theresa said when you said that that God doesn't ask us to be successful. Yes. Is To be faithful. Yes that essence absolutely. According to Saint Benedict. Success would be. If. All monks. Each individually. Really Reach Heaven And so this is not an external criteria of success. Who could measure this other than Christ and through respective brother? It's a different quality of success certainly, Saint Benedict wishes. To be the monastery to be fruitful as we have heard, he wants. The flock to increase. So, this is a sign of the Holy Spirit so if Locke becomes bigger. that. Might show something of this kind of success but still. It's more in eternal thing he and the spiritual ram success would mean. If. The leader the Abbot. Is Able. To create the framework that helps each brother. To Find God because this is what you wanted this.

Moussa Cisse is going to Memphis
"See say five star prospect originally in the class two thousand twenty one, but now I'm class. Two Thousand Twenty announced this afternoon that he is committed to the University of Memphis. Pippen Hardaway's Tigers over offers from Georgetown Georgia. Florida State Lsu and Kentucky for those unfamiliar. I guess you can on some level. Call him a quote local product because he did spend the past year at Lausanne collegiate school, which is seven miles from the Memphis. MEMPHIS campus, but he's not really a local product. He was born in West. Africa moved to New York, in two thousand, fifteen played at Saint Benedict's prep in New Jersey played at Christ King in New York, then relocated a Memphis, the plate laws and this past season led the links to a state title, one Mr Basketball and the state of Tennessee average eighteen point, four points, fifteen point, three rebounds, and a ridiculous nine point two blocks per game, and now we have college basketball season. He says he'll play for the Memphis Tigers. norlander break it down. What do you make a penny? Hardaway lending a five star center in two straight recruiting classes last time. It was James Wiseman this time Mussa. Break it down Oh. Yeah, here's what I got a question for you I. Mean Here's here's was Gary Perez? Is tweet on Wednesday afternoon breaking all caps course. This was an all caps breaking the way I don't i. You know what expected to go to Memphis. I. Don't know if all caps was warranted there. Can you take me inside the thought process versus not in a? Regular grammar versus going all caps in that moment, please. Young Mussa say follows exactly ten people on twitter. I am one of them, and so I wanted to make sure he he saw how much emphasis I put on his commitment. How do I just know that two four six years from now if and when Lucy say is? Able to earn a consistent NBA paycheck, and perhaps it's even a player of of importance in the NBA. Gary Parrish will never ever ever forget or forget to remind people that there was one point in time and Mussa CCA followed ten people on twitter. And he was one of them. I honestly don't even understand it. Because like he used to follow a lot of people on twitter, I noticed and. One of them was not me, and then suddenly he cut almost everybody, but added me I don't really even know the connection there, but. I want I knew he'd see the tweet. And once I knew each the tweet I wanted to I wanted him to experience in all. Caps tweet obviously as as faithful podcast, listeners will know. Also one Moussa, see say. was tutored by your own son so I think. That might also be an influence. Parish working behind the scenes to get it done for Memphis. You've gotta admire actually ironically enough this happening in a week where parish is not on his local radio show. The conspiracy only strengthens. Okay, so here's what here's my question for you. you say the six eleven likely one and done talent averaged. Eighteen point four points, fifteen point, three rebounds and nine point two blocks last season pick memphis over Georgetown. Tom Kriens Georgia bulldogs Kentucky and Lsu. My question is. Who the hell is this guy planning? Nine point two blocks a game what? I have not I have. It's private school basketball in the state of Tennessee so? Took it over people who look like my oldest son in some cases like the blogging. What after another like I don't know I never been to a laws and basketball game and I've never even actually met. Say although it is true, my son and Mussa. Were classmates in my son to tutor him in in certain classes I. I don't even know if say knows that. My son is his classmate. He might, but I don't know that I've never I've never even had a real conversation about Mussa with my son. Other than so, what kind of young man is he and was like really nice? Really Really Nice guy like you know doesn't walk around like some big time. Basketball player I the only other times. I would talk to myself about Moses. Like Hey, did you see that dunk? That was on instagram last night or something like that? Because like fans are crazy, and at one point, the two schools involved in the Memphis in. RECRUITMENT MOST HEAVILY WE'RE MEMPHIS IN KENTUCKY and I'm like it doesn't matter what happens I. will somebody connected to one of those fan? Bases will blame me for it if HE GOES TO MEMPHIS, Kentucky fans it'd be because I pushed into Memphis somehow through my son, and if he goes to Kentucky Memphis fans, it'd be like see parish eight says all the modern salads like I'm not even getting involved. The only time my son had ever been asked about Mussa as recruitment. That I witnessed was one of my friends recently asked him when they were over at the house, and my son's answer was he always talked about? Georgetown but I don't think he's going to go to Georgetown and that was the extent of it. So he was right. Maybe my son's got a future and being a recruiting analyst, right?

We now return to the holy rule of Saint Benedict a spiritual guide for today's world. Was Father Marines. Still D Paul would instruct woody. Not Father made seaoson relations Chapter Two verse. Twenty where he speaks of the suffering of Christ in that it is not I who live but it's Christ who lives in me so an understanding of that relationship with God that he is not out there watching. But it's Christ who lives in me. It's in then. We can understand the saints when they say was a trace of Avalon. Who would say. You're his hands. His feet is your his wit. We become united with him. Yes this is. I think the best way to overcome suffering to give it a meaning that we place ourselves just next to the cross of Christ and to try to find a connection and we don't have make it we cannot make this connection that Jesus himself make this condition. Let let him tell you what might be the meaning of it and this changes dramatically the way how you deal with the suffering then you get the strength you need. You got the consolation you need. People are coming and console you people you need. Maybe you know this beautiful crucifix. That is engraved on the metal. The metal of Saint Benedict this famous metal. This is across and these initials C. S. P. B. Mean Crooks Sanctity Patriot benedict easy. This is the cross of our Holy Father Benedict so at the heart of this metal. There's the cross and I guess this is so because the monks have always been experience that there is suffering included in our lives but with the help of Christ we can overcome it. We we we offer up our suffering for him and all these words a little bit too short really don't fit what what is meant but maybe the way how you expressed it It's all about becoming one Christ and that involves suffering. Think about the martyr's who give their life lives for Christ if they wouldn't follow Christ they probably wouldn't suffer so even go so far. It's not only then if we if we encountered any kind of suffering that we connected with Christ and look for meaning but sometimes even following Christ becoming one with him causes suffering. This is really hard to understand and probably for many people not not reasonable to to understand at all but if we follow Christ this can happen so as Saint Benedict Road in this chapter that I read out Chapter Seven on humility when struck on one cheek. They turn the other Wendy private of their code. They offer their cloak so Jesus recommends US rather to suffer then to inflict pain on somebody. This is the point very often. We not only avoid suffering by taking pills or taking or drinking or distracting ourselves in order to not feel it but sometimes the inflict our pain our suffering on others we handed onto others but Jesus again recommends. There is a cross that you have to carry and together with me you can carry. Id really should leave it with yourself. You shoot rather suffer in this little area then to cause pain and suffering around you and I think if we all would do this our world luke would really look better You know it's interesting that you brought up the medal of Saint Benedict where for many people at has become a important sacramental with its wonderful Element of vanquishing evil. It is a protector against evil. And for you to bring forward the fact that in the in the heart of the metal is across and that that it is the cross of Christ. It's that bearing the suffering and US uniting with that. That's what conquers evil. And it is a puzzlement isn't it? That's true exactly. This is conquered evil and evil is basically the the cost for the suffering and this day to day life can be like a test of your faith to this is another meaning that who scriptures and Saint Benedict give to suffering when he says elsewhere in scripture says or God you have tested us have tried us a Silva's tried.

"That that is very true and we're not talking about just positive thinking here so a positive attitude helps you through and maybe even heels you this kind of stuff. It's it's important to be positive but Here we talk about something to embrace suffering in a deep away and this context to approach it spiritually so the question you might ask is the pain I face is it really. Necessary would be the first question as for disarmament. There's a lot of pain that is not necessarily we caused ourselves. We make all life heart and not bearable. Maybe we can change and turn around and get rid of Spain but there might be still arrest that cannot be changed and then we should ask ourselves. That's the Lord really want this to be. And what is his thinking about my situation so the question really is to bring this suffering into contact with Jesus connected with Jesus. This is what. Saint Benedict says in the prologue. He says never swerving from his instructions then but faithfully observing his teaching in the monastery until death we shall through patients share and the sufferings of Christ that be made his of also to share in this in his kingdom share in the sufferings of Christ. This is a one wonderful way to overcome pain or to at least be able to go through pain too connected with the suffering of Christ to look at the crucifix to pray. Until say Maya suffering. Maybe now you're suffering your suffering may be now my suffering to make this one too. Connect it with Jesus for me. Personally this is the only way how to give sense of. Its Saint. Paul isn't it? He says that we make up. What's lacking in the suffering of Christ and what a mystery is that I mean? How can there be anything lacking and yet it's scripture. It gives us something to ponder. Doesn't it yes is in the letter to the Colossians? I fill up in my flesh. What is still lacking in regard to Christ's afflictions think we can only understand this if we see the body of Christ the Church as one and that makes Christ really present today so he still suffering. And if I'm on to be a part of it I might also contribute a little bit to the salvation of the world which is done by Jesus Christ but as you said this is hard to grasp will return in just a moment to the holy rule of Saint Benedict a spiritual guide for today's world with father narrates his Phil.

"Okay benedict. Did you take your benedictine monks warning to take your benedictine monks with the follow with apologize. Apologize apologizes to the don't. We just have market apology up to everyone we should we should we should be linked apology yet. We say this week we apologize to and then we'll have no. I think his apology to everyone everyone. We're very sorry once again to all the people in the animals in the religions ran the colors and the texans and the uh-huh people and the fabrics that we piss off and the modes of transportation yet fabric is always right wrinkling angry yeah right. That's why it's so wrinkled because because we're always pissing it off. Yeah damn you linen but this week. We're not here to talk about linen. No what are we here to talk about benedictine monks. I made you say 'cause. I gave up i can i can. I be honest about something. Yes please so. I got about twenty he minutes into research and i'm like oh am i done and i looked at my mother a pearl of only twenty minutes. I was not as excited about this. Week's research topic as i was about cheese. I wasn't either. I i set my timer for sixteen minutes and i was excited. I was like i'm just going to be sixty minutes and then i began and i thought i might do less than an hour actually turns out. I did use all of my sixty minutes but that's because because i <hes> well you'll see i'm super excited for something. We'll talk about towards the end. I don't know what else to say about that but i agree. It wasn't as excited. I was trying to figure out why and i was thinking well. Would i be. I would it if we were researching tibetan monks. Would i feel the same and i think it's just <hes> i don't know i think it's probably just a subject that doesn't naturally grabbed grabbed me but this is why the whole podcast is about. It doesn't matter right doesn't yeah. We're not gonna talk just about our interests right. We don't learn anything that away exactly yeah so all right. How did the benedictine monks come about this history lady <hes> well. I i benedict team monks. You can also call them the o. s. b.'s not the s._o._b.'s probably wouldn't like that but it's the order of saint benedict <hes> and they're not it's not a single religious order because each monastery is autonomous and yes one another thing before we get into all of that saint benedict and blah blah blah and the word monk comes did you did you see where this it's a. It's a greek word monaco's monaco's. I'm assuming how it's pronounced. It could be mona choice but i'm gonna go with monaco's and that means single or solid harry very <hes> and that means to practice asceticism and had to look that up which is okay so asceticism is the severe self discipline and avoidance so all forms of indulgence so they practiced by living alone or with with other monks <hes> yeah that's severe self-discipline discipline avoidance of all forms of indulgence sound super fun. <hes> don't you think it does not. The kind of there's parts of that that are there are yeah. That's true yeah. It was <hes> an in today to the the rule is that they have individual autonomous community uh-huh and they still remain all the congregations remain self governing <hes> so they do have tight communities right and we could have have visited a couple of them but time is always an issue and carving out that kind of time because it it would have been a few hour drive life yeah so that that's <hes> that sometime although it would've been great i it would have been really we can do it another time though anyway <hes> the benedictine motto stage you wanna do you wanna tell us it sure so the benedictine monks follow the rule of up saint benedict and it's it was a book written in five sixteen and the motto is pretty much summed up as pray and work at libra latin. I'm looking at me like i almost wanted to say something and it's inappropriate because we're talking about monks shemozzle signature inc or i o ways yes. Oh always learn an surely sorry okay. Oh yeah we already pre- appalled never mind sauce and already proof politics <hes> we did. We already had the blanket apology. <hes> so saint benedict who was this guy he was a monk and abbot who lived in the fifth and sixth centuries he founded several monasteries and wrote the rule of monasteries <hes> he's the patron of europe and the catholic religion and and <hes> most of what we know of his life are from the four books of dialogues which pope gregory the great wrote in five ninety three five ninety-four for a._t. <hes> book to focus mostly on benedict but it seems as though <hes> gregory the great was more more interested in the spiritual -ness of it than in biographical detail and i interpreted that to mean less this fax fewer facts and more. I'm not sure did you anywhere out when he became a saint when he was sainted. I i think i do i have that i might have that. Might we'll get to that <hes> anyway so he's this this book. These books bucks made him one of the most popular saints of the italian peninsula. So where does this story began well. He was born in central italy four eighty. That's bright in nursia modern day north korea which is <hes> near rome he and his twin sister scholastica which i did not find out about her until literally the last five minutes a money. There's a tight <hes> yes and i i researched her and as well so we'll yes they yeah they were <hes> born to christian noble family <hes> <hes> in four eight four eighty adeem benedict studied in rome. He hated it. I thought it was corrupt and unchristian and immoral so oh he left rome about circa four ninety four when he was age fourteen then he spent time living as a hermit in isolation in a cave which was later identified as the sacra speeco or spiritual speeco at subiaco subbiah show which is the holy cave and it's supposedly only one of the most beautiful shrines really i didn't look into it. Yeah i go into that. I can tell you that it's forty miles east of bro <hes> and then during this time he became known as a holy man and the monks of nearby monastery asked him to become their new abbot but he insisted on proper monastic discipline and they didn't like that so they tried to poison him. It didn't work so we went back to his gave and and <hes> later in life he ended up establishing twelve monasteries near su bianco and then <hes> resided in a thirteenth as abbot and i guess they were okay with all of his rules around the year five twenty nine so he was around forty nine years old he left soobee alco <hes> <hes> with some disciple yep has yes and then founded another monastery and that's where he wrote not take casino baton rouge casino old naples oh good i didn't look where it was. <hes> this is where he wrote the rule of monasteries and then he served as that monastery's abbot until he died on the twenty first of march and five forty seven <hes> mountaintop born on a mountaintop in dan just trying to think of something other than tennis even so here's the deal. You just took away a third of my research christian. I figured it out why chris to talk so much and i talked to a little too when i do my our i do stuff and then i write all of the things that i want to talk about and krista cuts in pay stuff yep and so she's got like ten pages worth of literally have to because i write everything out and she yes so that's why chris to talk all the time and i got and i started out that way writing all my notes out but then i discovered one. There were so out out of order because i couldn't keep them. I couldn't leave enough room. I didn't know how much room is going to go where and blah blah blah so that was driving me nuts and then it also took me so long writing them and here i copy paste and then reword it or just kind of highlight. The importance stops that if i don't get to the other stuff that's good. That's fine now you may they have like kristof talks ninety percent and sage just talks about candy and cheese and playing with her food and cats and cats at this is not to say it always has a ton of notes but they're not as good as yours well now. You just have to do mine. Try i might i like my because i actually because if i just cut i won't you learn learn yeah yeah right it then i will they yeah. They say if you actually handwrite eight things out. It helps you to remember <hes>. I yeah i definitely agree with that and i remember for if i do that. I will remember something for at least fifteen minutes whereas if we're just cut and paste and two minutes yeah so it's solid i just like it. Be helping go to explain why oh yes christa has done at the research i it's because i'm a nerd and i like like this. I have it as you know saint benedict first and then the rule that he wrote the history of the you know the monks and everything becoming coming among the little section on them in the middle ages and then i have daily live and then i have stuff on his sister and then i move move onto saints 'cause i had questions about that and then i've got this special section i told you about routing sections took an hour krista but it's funny okay okay so yes so he died and then his <music> sister scholastica was unusually buried in the tomb and they died for years apart yes and then <hes> during world war two the monastery was bombed and the sorry mom those those are my sound effects. Keep going and that joint tomb was uncovered so it confirms the account of their burials that pope gregory had had said apparently they a lot of people just didn't think that was that was the case because it was unusual anyway. This might be when he was in saint did in nineteen forty seven pope pius the twelfth recognize saint benedict as the father of europe and in nineteen sixty four pope paul the sixth declared him patron of europe in his sister was saying to yes she was. She's a really well you want to talk about because i don't know anything about that section versions. She scholastica isn't like a book thing scholastic scholastic books the book fairs were okay the best the <hes> are getting so much those little those papery it was. They still do those two pages.

"I found that rarely leads me to make my decision like make a pro com list. And then it's going to tell me what to do like that doesn't really ever quite it just makes the decision harder in real life rain. Yeah. Everything ways different amounts, and it's all you can't quantify it that way. But I have found that this concept of developing a rhythm of life, Saint Benedict called it a rule of life a way to live my life in a way where I am naturally. Putting myself in God's path on purpose. He's always with me. But I think it's not necessarily for him. It's for me to recognize that he's here with me and having some of those establish rhythms. That are simple like a morning routine, and you know, recognizing his presence with me throughout the day through different things that I might do. Or might not do. Yeah. Is been really helpful for me. So what you're saying to us is developing these kind of rhythms and patterns in your life are not necessarily just so that when the decision comes like, it's good. But you're saying when I develop these win the have to make decision. My brain is already like it is already moving in those ways to make the decision easier. Wouldn't it be great? If we didn't have to wait until a decision was made. And then we figure out, oh, what is this life giving to me? What is it that I love what is it that? I feel connected to what if we had a lifestyle that supported that already on this end. So that when those decisions come I'm not saying the decisions will be easy. But I do think we'll be in a better position to make them with a whole heart. Then we would be if we weren't living within those rhythms in the first place. It's so intriguing and I think I think you're onto something Emily eager was, but it is so intriguing because when I'm looking back as you're talking I'm thinking about some big. Like bly for job or family decisions that we've had to make. And I do I sit in those times. I find myself pouring myself into scripture poi- myself into messages. Listen to podcasts about that asking for people's advice everywhere, and I can see like man if I had added some of those rhythms to more consistently. I might not have felt so stressed in the decision making. I think it would have still been a hard decision. But I would have had a little bit of more breathing room in that decision. Totally so great. Okay. So I think making decisions can be super difficult sometime. And no you mentioned to me that you have a class. I do have four all of us like me, and everyone that's listening. Tell me what I need. I did because I felt like that while the book can while the book stands alone in developing a path for simple soulful decision making. I did think it's helpful to have a rhythm of life already established. That helps you make those win the decisions. Come. And so I created a class to help. I really walk people through the classes called discern and decide and it's all about. Developing a personal rhythm of life. So that when the decisions come they might feel like they're not quite so stressful. There still could be stressful but not quite stressful. But the classes available for free for anybody. Who who preordered the book? That's awesome. Okay. We'll put a link in the show notes. We'll make sure you know, how to get there. Just go to my web page, you can figure it out. But take the class I need to take it because I need some rhythms in my life to make these things easier. I'm gonna ask you this quick. This kept on my head, are you integrate person? I am what number are you? I'm a four. Okay. Have we had room any force on the show? I don't think. So have you not I need to keep a running tally of everyone's number that comes on.

But we really just attract a lot of teenage boys. And how do you think boxing helps them what what is it that boxing gives them that's going to improve their life. So I'm a boxing. I like myself a some a self certify boxes. Right. So I read a lot of the literature on and what people have to realize is boxing has always targeted those on the lower part ecconomic totem pole. So you look at history, you know, as people came to this country, the poorest of immigrants one of the outlets. They found was box, right. Because think of it it's easy access. You don't have to have a lot of money. No crazy. You go to the boxing clubs, you just show up. You train is very physical right because we don't have a lot right at the very least one thing. You might think you have is this toughness, and you shop to boxing gym, it it lose that. Right. So for young men in the inner city, boxing truly speaks now. And in targets the kids. I wanna talk right. I like to get the kid that's out on the block, right? Not doesn't have much going on. And I like to get him in a gym a positive statement virement and helped mold him into something better and boxing, really targets. I mean, boxing, greedy sport, so boxing, the boxing. We do we target those kids. Right. We talk. It those kids that every you know, you're driving interrupted neighborhood. He see the kids run around militate damn you should be in school or something. Right. By those are the kids we work with him boxing on. And that's who is is big out too. Because I think the first thing is it. It's edgy right? So everybody likes it there confided special in these environments. Yeah, they they can fight. And so where they're gonna go to show how tough they are. Right. The boxing gym every him in by the punch a heavy bag. Right. They might not have the best technique reform. But you know, anybody can punch a punch a heavy bag. So you get those guys in there. And then let's be honest. It's pretty cool. Right. Like, how many I mean where can you go? Find a boxing coach, right? There's not that meeting. Like that really know is not a common thing yet. You have like the fitness boxing. But if you want to say, hey, I'm Sean I wanna box, right. Where's the best boxing coach? You know? That's something that's unique. And so when they come across a coach or something, right? It's like a it's a it's a it's quite the experience, and you aside in the Marine Corps marine for alpha males tough. So when they find out mocks almonds like asserting teachers auto box, right or they always ask, you know. Hey, sir. What's your gym? Where you coach that, you know, those kind of things so it just speaks speaks to young man is what it really comes down to what prompted you to start iron the iron bound boxing academy. So when I got to so when I got to Saint Benedict's right week. We do so much here as Saint medics. I mean, we were school all boys school five hundred. For the students seven at seventy of which live in the residence hall, and we're in the we are literally in the heart of downtown door and real estate is very limited on campus. Right. So we're max I mean, we're maxed out of our buildings on campus..

"Honestly, like that me, the headmaster we Email back and forth. And then when I came here, I thought I was going to be teaching like visit physical education and living in the residents hall as one of the. House fans, but then I showed up here, and he put me in charge of the residence hall. So I don't coach his head. I just run the residence hall. So that's how that happened. Do you see any similarities between that and the barracks that was filled with enlisted marines Absolut? Absolutely. So going back to. Conversation, initially, Russ. Okay. Hey, you gotta be true to yourself. One of the things I love about the military, and the Marine Corps was the camaraderie, right? And I liked that. I like the idea of mentoring young marines when I made that transition out to Saint minutes, I'm in an environment. That's all male, very similar to the Marine Corps, the Rico infantry with just, you know, age difference. Right. So marines, you're dealing with. You know, what eighteen to twenty years young rates eighteen twenty five? Now, you got your salt dogs. But then in Saint Benedict's, I'm dealing with teenage boys from like, you know, twelve to nineteen. So I'm kinda doing a lot of the same work minus the the violence outside of boxing. So instead of training marines on you know, accorded searches in mount town, right? I'm to young boys about life. You know, helping them develop the daily routines teaching them about, you know, have hippie for each other, you know, really focusing on life skills in raising them as opposed to just train them for combat operations. Yeah. Did you know when you got to Saint Benedict's that you wanted to start a boxing club there? Well. Early on the premises, but like some sort of boxing activity. Yeah. So that was underlying like that was the understood thing between Manhattan, axel was that. And here's the thing all about Saint Bendix Saint Benedict's is so unconventional right? That I knew that I will have an opportunity started boxing programming. Right. Because you got a lot of educational institutions trying to focus on the inner cities and particularly young men of color, both black and Latino. And they're trying to fit, you know, around pay into a square hole, and it's not working right scratching themselves saying, well, we need to do this. You do that. Or we don't understand why it's not working, right? What you need is some people that believe in a non traditional approach to educate them and part of those not provisional approach is being open, a new ideas. Right. And so when I was talking to headmaster, you know, he told me I could start a boxing program here. And so that was one of the reasons also came was okay to work at Saint Benedict's, and my best way to into help you for me personally is through boxer honest. Like, you know, you get a lot of people out there that like to go through politics, they like to give speeches, you know, they're rioters on the nets. They communicate with the world will the best way. I communicate with the world and impact mind virement, Emma community is through boxing, and I knew be opportunity to do that. And I knew Saint benet's crazy up to let me do. So why do you why do you feel that way awake? What is it about boxing that you think would be beneficial for these these because you also have girls your boxing academy? Right. So it's it's boys and girls it is. We don't turn it..

"That I wanted to reach out to you in the first place was the fact that you are doing something that is quite different from the norm and. It's I think that it's actually not uncommon inside of the military in first responder communities that we dig deep to help our own and we also reach out to help others. And I think that's that's part of what people who choose to put on a uniform. That's part of what makes them who they are. But I really wanted to highlight your story because of the fact that you're dealing with a group of people who and by this. I mean in the the work that you do at Saint Benedict's and also for ironbound USA that are largely underserved, underprivileged and really don't get a lot of airtime except for I don't know the occasional feel-good, you know, media story, but the work that you're doing is. So. Foundational, and it's so pivotal in terms of how can help shape the lives of the young men and women that you're working with. So I really wanted to make sure that this story got out, and I wanted to make sure that people understand what it is that you're doing what it is that you are hoping to build across the USA and on top of that the show has a lot of civilians that listen. And so I think that you're going to be able to provide a really unique perspective on not only what prompted you to join the military in the first place. But then why are you continuing to give back, and I think, you know, from my perspective on just really excited to have this conversation. So again, thank you so much for coming on the show. Yeah. Absolutely surprise clever end up in shows like this one important to the cause, you know, I think is good to show those different perspectives better because the naval cabinet graduate. Amid a lot of midshipmen, And y'all. when you're going through a place like academy, your focus is very much on the military, right? But conversations when you're talking about getting out of the military, and there's almost no talk on that, you know, when you're going through the cabinet because it's not what they're making you. You know, there's not what you're going there for you're going to be an officer in the military. So your whole life is focused on that militate rear and not necessarily on what's actor so stuff. Like, this is good in do agree cruciate. You have me on. So I guess a good place start with is probably my background. Yeah. Definitely give us. Give us more flavor around why join the military. You know, there's a lot of people in civilian life myself included, actually, before I you know, when I was a child my dad, he was a veteran. The his dad was veteran. My mom's dad was veteran. You could say that ran in the family, and he just routinely would tell me when I was a kid you're going to be in the military, and I was such a. Such a momma's boy that is constantly like now, I don't want to be in the military. And then eventually realized that it was the right decision for me. But what is it that made you want to join that organization, though, is plenty to say that so I was very much mother's boy like yourself..
