Have you ever heard of Blessed Karl of Austria?

On this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, podcast hosts Sam Guzman and John Guzman discuss living a holy life through the Christlike example of Emperor Bl. Karl of Austria.

“Bl. Karl was elevated to the throne as Emperor of the Austrian Hungarian Empire in 1916 in the midst of the War to End All Wars, World War I,” the episode’s description says.

“We discuss how he virtuously and heroically balanced his life as a Catholic emperor, loving husband, and passionate father.

“He knew great suffering, having been betrayed by his friend, forced into exile without his children, and ultimately dying at the young age of 35. He is a saint for modern men.”

The guys also discuss these topics:

  • Guest David Ross: Expert on Bl. Karl
  • An emperor and peacemaker during the war
  • The final death throws of Catholic Europe
  • The suffering of exile
  • His life as a husband and father
