"Leadership in one form or another falls squarely on the shoulders of every Christian whether a bishop, priest, religious or lay Catholic. Ignoring this simple truth comes with a heavy cost; all of humanity suffers. Growing the capacity of authentic leadership within the Catholic 
Church will increase the effectiveness of the church’s mission…to save souls." MSG. Michael M. Cutone 

Considered par excellence on the topic of leadership; a straightforward and classic statement regarding the understanding and application of authentic leadership. Drawing from the teachings of Christ, the Gospels, the lives of the saints and lessons learned during 23 years of service with the US Army Special Forces (Green Berets). MSG Michael Cutone masterfully unfolds a powerful treatise on leadership that clearly identifies ten principles. Further he challenges all of us; "Who among us will answer the call? Who among us will pick up and labor under the weight, the ridicule, the hardship, and the glory of carrying your cross towards Christ Crucified? "

Prayer to Continue to Fight for God
“Lord, if your people still have need of my services, I will not avoid the toil. Your will be done. I have fought the good fight long enough. Yet if you bid me continue to hold the battle line in defense of your camp, I will never beg to be excused from failing strength. I will do the work you entrust to me. While you command, I will fight beneath your banner. Amen”

“A beautiful piece of work. Needless to say, it will be a great help to the priests who read it. But if I had my way, 
I'd put MSG Cutone in front 
of every fraternal Catholic officer and NCO organization, and at the podium of every officer and NCO basic and advanced course, and every Newman Center on every campus in the country. I wish that someone had talked to me like this before I stepped in front of my first platoon.

"How many times throughout history has victory been snatched from the jaws of defeat because of a heroic display of leadership by some young officer, or NCO. The military does not have the exclusive rights to leadership, but it has formulated over time a systematic, comprehensive approach to leadership....Lead by example, Integrity, Courage, and Selfless service. His treatise on Leadership encapsulates and embodies the leadership of Christ. This soldier’s journey as a leader began 23 years ago while attending and graduating the US Army Special Forces Course. His reflections are personal, on target and effective. 
They can be applied just as easily 
by a combat leader, a businessman, or a religious leader striving to save men's souls. This is a must read."

"Awesome in its simplicity. 
I have had the distinct honor 
of serving with MSG Cutone in the US Army Special Forces and have seen first hand these leadership principles placed into action. Mike is an exceptional leader who has summarized his years of experience into 
a simple yet profound message. This book is a 
must read for anyone in a position of responsibility.”

    The book is outstanding and I am going to buy more and give them out to
my prayer groups. I had a conversion story similar to yours. I am a retired
Chief from the Vietnam era. Your book is going to help a lot of people to understand what we have to do to win the battle against Satan and the rest of his bunch. Thanks a lot for your good work it is a godsend for us.

Sincerely In Christ,
