Down to Earth with Curt Arens, part I

As Catholics, we strive to understand virtue, and then live out those virtues daily, especially the Cardinal Virtues of Prudence, Justice, Temperance, and Fortitude. It is safe to say that the man you are about to listen to exemplifies the four Cardinal Virtues better than most people in this world, we credit his farming, his , and his strong faith for that claim.

Today’s Story

In recording this story, we spent about two hours with Curt, who lives in on his family’s fourth generation . During those two hours of recording, our eyes were lifted to a man who has given his life for the land, his family, and above all else, his Catholic faith. Virtue exudes from his being, all you have to do is stand by the man. Once you click play, and listen to his words, you will understand what a great Catholic man is like in 2011. And on that note, our team wanted to go out with a bang for 2011, we hope you have enjoyed the ‘one billion Catholic stories’ of 2011, only God knows who shall arrive for the mission in 2012.


Today’s story is part one of a three part series on , author of Down to Earth, a book about how farming the land and the Catholic faith share a divine connection.

If so, our team would love to hear about them for a possible interview and chance at evangelization on the ‘digital continent.’ E-mail [email protected] to find out how to set up the interview.
