I’ve ordered my copy of Fr Rick Heilman’s brand-new book, Church Militant Field Manual: Special Forces Training for the Life in Christ, and I’m confident this will be a good book. Fr Rick is pastor of St. Ignatius Parish, Mt. Horeb, Holy Redeemer Parish, Perry, and St. Mary Parish, Pine Bluff, and founder of the Knights of Divine Mercy, where he also has a blog. Very many people here in the Madison area have found his spiritual guidance invaluable. He’s been extremely kind and encouraging to us in collaborating on the religious freedom efforts, and spoke and led prayer at the June 8th Stand Up For Religious Freedom Rally. The forthcoming Thursday evening Capitol Rosary Rallies that start NEXT week are his and Fr Isaac Mary Relyea’s initiative.
God wants you, but He wants you “strong” in His supernatural power. From the very first days of our membership in the Mystical Body of Christ, we are, in essence, commissioned officers in the Church Militant. This Church Militant Field Manual will test you in your resolve to become strong in the Lord and His mighty power. You will also learn the special operations (special ops) techniques and procedures for search and rescue missions of fallen comrades (family and friends whose faith has grown weak). Discover what it means to be “God strong.”
