Setting the Record Straight - Ol’Time Religion - 8/18/18

August 18, 2018

She is on her way back. Gaia the earth goddess has many followers of late.

But Gaia has another face, a terrifying one. Romantic fantasies about primitive religions are common. One fantasy is thinking there is a  benefit from merging all religions. This arises in part because what is commonly believed about various tribal religions is false. There is a false belief in the superiority of the exotic. The concept of the Noble savage is not just false , it is much worse that false. It is a damaging superstition.

The Catholic Man Show - Distraction in Prayer (and the episode) – Episode 122

August 17, 2018

Distraction in Prayer (and the episode) – Episode 122

We had a few hiccups on this show. New equipment. New producer. Trying Facebook Live. Perfect storm. We should have it down moving forward – appreciate your patience.

This whole episode is based off a book Adam read every year called, “Ways of Mental Prayer” by Rev. Abbot Dom Vitalis Lehodey.

The Ways of Mental Prayer ranks as one of the Church s greatest classics on prayer, and was highly recommended as such by Fr. Garrigou-LaGrange, the 20th Century s greatest authority on mystical theology.

Here Dom Lehodey concentrates on the beginning stages of prayer, up through what is called the prayer of quiet, but he also describes the higher forms of prayer as well, including the very summit, or the prayer of union. In the process, he explains the advantages, the joys and—yes— the trials of mental prayer, plus he gives practical instructions on the methods of practicing this type of prayer.

If this is your first time listening to The Catholic Man Show, we do 3 things every episode:

1.) Open, review, and enjoy a man beverage – Minutes 1-12.

2.) Highlight a man gear – Minutes 12-24.

3.) Have a manly conversation – Minutes 24-48.

MAN DRINK: Monk and Honey Ale from Torn Label Brewing

MAN GEAR: Bacon Press

MAN TOPIC: Ways of Mental Prayer

Forte Catholic Ep 96-Bearded Blevins, Bible Lens Hilarity & Chris Agron’s Catholic Memes

August 17, 2018

We kick off the show talking about the new Bible Lens App and how Taylor is using it to laugh non-stop. We share some of our best creations with you and invite you to play along!

We also have not one but TWO guests this week! In the 2nd segment, we are joined by Catholic Video Game Streamer extraordinaire, Jonathan "Bearded" Blevins. He is a member of the "Royal Family of Twitch Streamers(a title bestowed by Taylor)" as the eldest brother of Ninja and Invictus. By day, Jonathan is a full-time Director of Evangelization and Catechesis at a parish up north and by night he is living out the New Evangelization in a special way by sharing the Gospel & the love of God on his Twitch stream(@BeardedBlevins). He is also answering people's questions about faith while playing. His work is so refreshing in a place that is not usually uplifting. Jonathan is a fascinating dude and was a blast to speak with!

In the final segment, Taylor is joined by fellow podcaster Chris Agron to talk about his obsession with Catholic memes. We hope you enjoy this double dose of people not named Taylor talking on the show!

Episode 11: The Whaley Show

August 17, 2018

Chat: Mom's on Team Altra, going out, Ebb & Flow Fermentations, Dewayne Schaaf and being German as a superpower, Tanya’s fresh eyes, in praise of long country drives, American Grassfed Beef, Family Friendly Farm, back to being an almost college town, in praise of Fall, Chesterton and Pimlico, loving discontent, The One Thing You Really Need to Know, and getting the itch.  

 

Chat/Muse: Andrew embarks on a confusing and possibly ill advised discussion searching for a larger cause of what he sees as a increase in Southerness in the racial demographics, fashion, food, music, accents, and even wildlife of his area while he was in Denver. 

 

Rant: Andrew dives back into the sex abuse scandal, including: the horror is too horrible, addiction to the institution, looking up his abuser online and seeing his face, how his own silence and apologetics after 2002 was of the same motive as the bad bishops and most likely either sin or at least selfishness and addiction to ideology, covering your mother’s shame vs. her sickness, an embargo on the phrase “policies and precedures”, and the Left and Right using the crisis with a take down of both. 

 

Muse: obsessing over how to move forward, fear for his business, felix culpa, letting go of the baggage of Christendom, respect vs. clericalism, catholicity vs. institution, celibacy vs. marriage, truth vs. wonder, the 3 Es, the 3 Rs, and so much more. Final Rando Thoughts: The Japanese have a work for buying more books than you can read and male platypi are venomous. Chat. Rant. Muse.
