Fat Puppy Rides


Deacon Guy was looking forward to meeting Fat Puppy. Though that’s not his real name, fans on YouTube have come to know him by that handle. And they love the stories he tells in his videos too.

Stories are powerful ways to share the Gospel, and they’ve always had a powerful impact on Herman, Chucktown’s little, orange Cathedral mouse.


The Bible makes (at least) two things very clear. First, we are God’s children. And second, for now at least, the world is under the power of the evil one (1 John 5:19). Who could possibly argue with either assertion!

The Catechism goes on to say that the dramatic situation of the whole world being under the power of the devil makes man’s daily life a real battle (CCC 409). Satan is the deceiver of the world ( CCC 2852).


While Fat Puppy doesn’t overtly preach at his YouTube audience, it is against this backdrop that he tells the stories that are drawing so much attention. It’s not uncommon for Fat Puppy to take his audience to the final resting place of a heretofore unknown soul who quietly fought great spiritual and physical battles in his or her life. Their stories, though unique, are our stories in today’s world.

At the heart of each story is the message of redemption. The grave that Satan intended to be an eternal prison for mankind is actually the gateway through which we enter into the joy of our redemption. It’s a lot to comprehend, which probably explains why Fat Puppy doesn’t actually take his audience down that road. That’s an excursion he lets us explore for ourselves.

If you think the world is getting crazy and it’s not making much sense, look again at the focal Bible verse we chose as a theme for Fat Puppy’s story here on Catholic Roads. Read it and let it soak in.


Catholic media comes in all sizes and shapes, but it always accomplishes one important goal. It takes us into the presence of Jesus Christ.

That’s our story and we’re sticking to it. It’s cool to be Catholic. COOL2B!

In Christ.
