With Great Young Men at Esto VirOn Friday I was in Appleton Wisconson for the Esto Vir. When they invited me I had no idea what Esto Vir meant. Sounded something like estrogen but I knew it could not be that. I looked it up and discovered it was King David’s challenge to his son Solomon – “Be a Man!”

It was a great bunch of guys, sold out long before the event. I was proud and excited to share the faith with these enthusiastic Catholic guys. I gave my new talk “St. Joseph: Manly Man & Chosen Father” and “Swimming Upstream.” Fr. Chris Alar gave a talk on suicide and life beyond the grave. Eric Mahl and Bishop Ricken were also speakers.

Beforehand, I drove up to Green Bay Wisconsin to join Drew Mariani live on Relevant Radio. You can listen to our discussion below. My segment begins 17:00 minutes into the show.

Nothing like standing in front of an excited group of on-fire Catholics wanting to learn and grow in the truth of our Faith. To see eager eyes and ready ears inspires me.

Kids love these talks too – because of the energetic style and delivery full of content and good stories.

What a thrill to have so many young people come up afterward and thank me for turning them on to a deeper understanding and a fun time. Kids in an audience are great and to see their lives affected for the better is a thrill.

We have lots of talks and materials. Click the image for a complete list with categories – from Bible Study and Apologetics/Evangelization to Atheism and Islam.

Biblical characters like Abraham, Moses, Mary and St. Paul are excellent vehicles for relaying the biblical and Catholic truth in an exciting way that is easy to relate to.

New talks include: The Shoud of Turin & Tilma of Guadalupe, The Necessary Road to Holiness, How Does a John Paul II Catholic Survive in a Pope Francis World, and more.

Most of these talks are also available for purchase at www.SteveRaysStore.com
