Doug Barry - Battle Ready Strong

Doug Barry

Doug Barry is a devoted husband, father, and founder of RADIX - BATTLE READY, a Catholic apostolate that focuses on encouraging and strengthening men, women and youth to be better prepared to fight the battles that we all face in the world today, body, mind and soul. Since 1992 he has traveled both nationally and internationally, speaking to young and old alike through television, radio and live appearances. 

Doug is probably known best for his one-man drama of 'The Passion' which began in 1992 and has been performed live around the world, and aired on EWTN the Global Catholic Network. For many years Doug was the co-host of EWTN's 'Life on the Rock' and now currently hosts the television show BATTLE READY, also aired on EWTN.  

Doug still travels around the world, offering his services as a speaker for a variety of events, retreats, conferences, parish missions and more.




RADIX is a Latin word meaning 'root'. The mission of this apostolate 'RADIX' has always been to get to the root of the problem and to help ignite a fire for the Truth of the Catholic Faith.  The world we live in is filled with broken souls, bleeding marriages and churches that exist on life support. We all live among the tired and weary man or woman who fights discouragement, apathy and doubt.  The mission is to get to the root of these and other problems and do what we can to ease or stop the pain, chaos and destruction.  The mission is to stop the damage before it starts. 

"I have come to light a fire,

how I wish it were already ablaze!" 

— Luke 12:49


BATTLE READY is an initiative of RADIX that was born in 2012 and has been going strong ever since.  This initiative is an effort to be more AWARE of, PREPARED for and ENGAGED in the battles that we all face, body, mind and soul. Every one of us is in the thick of the spiritual battle. Many do not see it and consequently are unprepared for it. The outcome of that scenario is devastating. The primary goal of BATTLE READY is to help others know how to deal with the attacks of the world, the flesh and the devil.

Being BATTLE READY is a daily duty for a Christian. It is a life-style that is not only essential for the one living it, but it impacts many other lives. The responsibility we all have to be prepared for the fight, body, mind and soul is one that carries with it an eternal consequence. You are a soldier of Christ and others are counting on you to be faithful to this duty! To do this requires dedication and training.
