EP37 - Memento Mori, Your Time is a Gift and Living a Life by Design w/ Oliver Pappas

Alto by Libertas is inspired by the Italian phrase "Verso l'alto", which means "to the heights", emblematic of the heroic life of Italian mountaineer and social activist Pier Giorgio Frassati. Listen to raw and authentic conversations on Faith, Culture, Fitness and Mission-Driven Entrepreneurship that will help us pursue "the heights" together!


Oliver is an Army Officer, real-estate investor, personal coach, Man School Strategist, and traditional Catholic. He aspires to become a strong husband and loving father to raise a holy and healthy family. He is a champion for authentic masculinity and for restoring virtue to men of all ages. Oliver sees his Instagram as an apostolate, where he can share ways he’s found to live life more intentionally and prayerfully—while providing examples of living a full life that prioritizes growing in faith and virtue.

The Great Man’s Legacy (The Man School) Masterclass is a 6-month course that teaches men to build an integrated vision for every arena of life. The content emphasizes building practical skillsets for men to manage their mind, body, and goals to live a life of design rather than default.

Episode Themes:

  1. Beginning with the end in mind - living by design and with intention.
  2. Memento Mori -  our time and energy are precious living by design positions us to be a good steward of what God gives us.
  3. Practical and prayerful insights on how to cultivate a vision, make big decisions and get after it everyday with the right mindset.
  4. So much more great themes as well!
