The Church and the World Need a Superhero -- Catholic Joe is His Name
First-time author Steven Thomas inspires adult readers to defend marriage and family in a fast-paced fiction page-turner entitled Catholic Joe Superhero

MANHATTAN, Ill., Feb. 28, 2024 /Standard Newswire/ -- Hailed as an inspirational, fast-paced, believable novel, Catholic Joe Superhero is the first in a series of planned books by first-time author Steven Thomas. Weaving danger and intrigue with the beauty of our Catholic faith, Thomas' page-turner is a theological treatise on marriage and the diabolical enemies that fight against it.

Heeding the warnings of Our Lady of Fatima who said, "This final battle will be over marriage," the author's ardent desire in writing Catholic Joe Superhero was to share the magnificence of God's mercy and grace.

In fact, Thomas who spent 5 years in the seminary discerning a vocation to the Priesthood, has channeled those same desires in a book that beautifully illustrates the depth and breadth of the church's teachings on marriage and family values.

Thomas has been told that Catholic Joe Superhero reads like a Reacher or Jason Bourne Novel but where Catholicism and living his faith is central to his character. Lieutenant General Joseph Salvatore, the main character, is the husband and father of a large family who is desperately needed in the world's biggest fight.

"He is a man's man, who, at the age of 48, is still one of the deadliest men on the planet, able to kill an enemy with his bare hands, and with the same hands tenderly caress his wife and children. Joe brings that same lethal intensity as he fights to save his youngest brother Vinny's marriage – all the while uncovering corruption in the government and his beloved church."

As Ephesians 6:12 points out, "For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."

Why did Steven Thomas write such a gripping, relatable story? Because today the Church and the world need courageous fathers and husbands. This is the book to inspire many more "Catholic Joe Superheroes" to defend marriage and family.
