Father Leo Patalinghug is a Roman Catholic priest who holds a pontifical theological degree in Mariology (the study of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the life of Christ).  He is also an international TV show host, radio host, and founder of the international movement Grace Before Meals, which provides a pastoral theology of the Eucharist to strengthen the communion of the family (the Domestic Church) through the blessing of the meal. He is a popular author, internationally sought-out speaker, and an effective preacher of the New Evangelization to diverse audiences in the modern world. 


In Epic Food Fight, we are treated to a new perspective on food in our spiritual lives. ... I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in leaning more about salvation history. The discussion questions make it a good book club choice.

Epic Food Fight : A Bite-Sized History of Salvation

Fr. Leo blends profound truths with humor and wit in a way that appeals to a wide cross-section of Catholics. In this new book, Fr. Leo goes beyond an explanation of how eating together builds stronger families to probe more deeply into the theological aspects of food.

Following the example of Jesus Christ, whose miracles and teachings often involved food, Fr. Leo explains salvation history by what he calls a “ theology of food” —there is a godly logic to every bite we take. He shows how the devil seeks to poison God’ s children from within, getting them to “ digest” his lies by taking what is harmful and making it look beautiful and edible. This cosmic struggle between good and evil can be seen as an “ eternal food fight” between God and the devil.

With Fr. Leo, theology—as well as the subject of food—is never boring. In simple, practical ways, you are invited to read, savor, chew on, and digest theological concepts you might never have understood before.

“ You are what you eat! Your mind, heart, and soul are capable of digesting God’ s Word, especially as it becomes flesh to dwell among us.”
