LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - Most people know the Church has a duty to teach. In fact, there is a word for it called, 'Magisterium." That is a big word that refers to the teaching office of the Church. Jesus commanded this, and those who follow this command are members of an Apostolate. In the broadest sense, this refers to all Catholics because we all have a duty to share the Gospel. 

Even during the time of Christ, Jesus and others had to work to sustain themselves. Generally, this work consisted of teaching others, but it also included common labor. Jesus Himself was a carpenter. Some of His closest followers were fishermen. Even after the Resurrection, the Apostles performed work wherever they went to provide for their own room and board. 

This tradition continues to this day. Even modern clergy, and laypersons, must labor to sustain themselves and the communities of which they are a part. 

For about sixty years, missionaries to North America established ranches to provide food and resources to support their efforts. It is a statement of fact that these mission ranches supported the first Catholic schools in the American west. This tradition was literally carried over from Europe. 

Without these ranches, the work of evangelization might not have been so successful. 

Today, we live in a new missionary age. A New Evangelization is underway as the Church works to convert those who have fallen away, and those who've never heard the Gospel. 

Montana Ranch and Cattle is itself a part of this ancient movement. The company donates all of its profit to Your Catholic Voice Foundation, which in turn supports Catholic Online School. Catholic Online School is dedicated to providing a free, world-class Catholic education for anyone, anywhere. 

In a way, you could say we have a good beef with Catholic education. That's because education has always been the way to convert hearts to Jesus Christ. And that is the mission of all Catholics. 

Consistent with this mission, Montana Ranch and Cattle proudly serves sustainably raised beef, without steroids or hormones. The meat is 100% grass fed on pasture. No grain or feedlots are used. This is their secret to producing what they call, 'The Greatest Meat on Earth'.

When you buy from Montana Ranch and Cattle, you are supporting Catholic education. And right now, they are offering a special discount to new customers, 50% off their delicious 'Tombstone' Ground Beef and their flavorful Roasts.
