Setting the Record Straight - Halloween Was Illegal When It Was Catholic - 10/13/18

October 14, 2018

Halloween is Catholic. Halloween was instituted by the Catholic Church despite the popular mis-historical theories of its origin.  Halloween is a slang word for All Hallows Eve. In other words Halloween is the Vigil of All Saints Day, a very ancient Catholic Holy Day that originally honored Catholic Martyrs.  In recent centuries our Halloween rituals have become debased by a secular overlay of horror movies and a tradition of destructive behavior. This podcast sets the record straight and concludes with a suggestion of how our parishes might revive the authentic devotional heart of Halloween.

New Age thought and the New Age Movement is  a very dangerous playground to dabble in. The entire focus of New Agers is to bring the attention towards oneself making YOU the God of your life. Moira Noonan understands this because she was heavily involved in the New Age Movement for years until the Blessed Mother rescued her. Listen in as Moira and I discuss her journey which she details in her book Ransomed from Darkness: The New Age, Christian Faith and the Battle for Souls.

Forte Catholic Ep 104-I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends Guest/TeaWithTolkien

October 12, 2018

Producer Sam is in the Holy Land so Taylor is all alone in the studio.....sooooo this week's show was crowd sourced! We got tons of questions and topics submitted by you the listeners. From CrossFit to Fortnite to chicken nuggets to Vatican III, we have something for everyone this week!

I also throw absolute shade at my frenemies at the Roman Circus podcast with the help of Fr. Anthony Sciarappa and throw shade at said priest with the help of his brother, producer Nick Sciarappa. Producer Sam wasn't around to carry the show so creativity and assistance from everyone involved was needed.

In the second segment, I am joined by my co-nemesis @TeaWithTolkien to talk about our "beef", her Catholic Twitter title & of course....tea & Tolkien.

Tune in to this very different but super interesting(I'm biased) episode! Let me know what you think of today's format and content on social media.
