The Into the Breach video series shows that men are made for greatness. It invites men to remember that they were born into a battle — a spiritual, but nonetheless very real, battle — for their souls. It’s a battle for their families, for their friends and for the entire world.
The stories shared in Into the Breach are stories of triumph, stories of how we can beat the odds and regain our identity as strong men — strong in the faith, strong leaders in our families, strong in our masculinity, and strong in times of crisis.
These videos were produced by Knights, for Knights. But they were also designed to be watched by anyone, at any time. Watch them with your wife, girlfriend, sister, mother, friend or the whole family. Together, as a family, as a council, a parish and a world-wide community, we can close the breach and achieve greatness.
The video series is available to stream online for free. Click below to watch.
