Sports, Virtue, and Raising a Family

There are great virtues that can be developed through sports. However, if not properly ordered, it can cause a breakdown in the domestic church. Our guest, David Dean, Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma, joins us to talk about this and his time in the Humanities program at KU with John Senior.

Become a Patron! Over 40 interviews, a course with Karlo Broussard, a 10 part series on the domestic church, a course on fitness and virtue by Pat Flynn, and free thank you gifts for supporting the show!

About our drink:

Hunt down a grill and gather your ancestors, because the Ardbeg BBQ Smoker is bringing the everyday cookout into a new age!
This gift pack includes one BBQ Smoker and one bottle of Ardbeg An Oa – the perfect spirit for sippin’ and tearin’. Small but mighty, the smoker lets you surround your food with smoke in just a few easy steps. Simply fill the puck with wood chips, lay it at the back of your grill, wait until your BBQ is sufficiently smoky, place your food around the puck, smoke it out some more, and voilà!
Once your food is smoked, cooked, and practically falling off the bone, all that’s left to do is plate up and pair with a delectably smooth dram of Ardbeg An Oa.

ARDBEG AN OA

Ardbeg An Oa’s rounded and subtly smoky aromas make it the prime spirit for toasting by the BBQ. With notes of thick cigar smoke, roasted tea leaves and grilled artichokes, this whisky is the perfectly peaty dance partner for your smoky culinary creations.
ABV: 46.6%

About the Topic:

How long have we been playing sports? What are the benefits of sports in a child’s development and growth in virtue? What is the end of sports for most people? What do you need to be aware of as a Catholic dad when getting your kids into sports? How will it affect the family?

We discuss this and much more with David Dean, Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma.
