Forte Catholic Ep 165-Taylor got ejected & Fr. Anthony Homily Review

December 13, 2019

We had a blast with this one!!! ūüėā ūüėā ūüėā

Taylor got ejected from a HS basketball game where he is the campus minister...whoops...lol. He shares the story, gets cohost Jon Blevins' take and the surprise reaction from the community.

We only have two segments today because the second is so special! Fr. Anthony sent Taylor his most recent homily knowing EXACTLY what he was getting himself into. So he joins us without joining us as Jon and Taylor give their commentary throughout the homily. Live with us the dream of many lay people to heckle or commentate during the homily. Soooo much fun! Special thanks to Fr. Anthony for giving us permission to roast him. We have been nice too...maybe...

Forte Catholic Ep 163-NCYC & a Priest in a Ditch w/Dustin Bertrand

November 29, 2019

Taylor attended the ginormous National Catholic Youth Conference with over 24k people there but that doesn't even lead our show this week. What leads the show instead is co-host Fr. Anthony Sciarappa sharing the story of driving his car into a ditch and then promptly having a phone call with Taylor to clear the air in their friendship. IT. WAS. WILD!!!

We're joined this week by Dustin Bertrand to look back at his first 30 years from his recent book that Taylor definitely has a better title for.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Forte Catholic team!

Forte Catholic Ep 162-I’m Catholic, Now What? w/Tim Glemkowski

November 22, 2019

Taylor announces he's going to Rome to visit holy places...and cohost Shaun McAfee! The guys chat about why pilgrimages are a thing and the benefits they can bring.

Our guest this week is Han Solo clone, Tim Glemkowski. The guys go crazy for a bit and then get around to talking about Tim's book "Made For Mission" about parish culture. He shares what us little laypeople can do to give and receive more from our parishes.

In the final segment, Taylor begrudgingly lets Shaun plug his new book "I'm Catholic, Now What?" Believe it or not, Shaun's book is actually quite intriguing and led to a fun convo on how good or bad of a Catholic Taylor really is.

Forte Catholic Ep 161-Taylor’s Homily, A New Game & A Dinosaur Priest

November 15, 2019

The first episode recorded in Taylor's home studio, the new Forte Catholic Headquarters!!!

Allison Sullivan cohosts with a skinny margarita as Taylor shares from a recent talk he gave that he's quite proud of. It involves John the Baptist, Confirmation and losing your head.

Resident Rocket Scientist and occasional guest JP Quinn returns with a new segment idea called "Forte, Mezzo or Piano" where he shares potential hot takes and the cohosts argue about them. This led to some of the most insane discussions we've had on the show to date! Have a strong take, let us know on the ol Twitter or Insta.

In the final segment, Taylor calls Fr. Joseph-Anthony Kress OP out of the blue so he and Allison can discuss women's ministry. Not what any of us thought we would be talking about today but it's what happened. Enjoy!

November 8, 2019

Jon "Bearded" Blevins cohosts with hot takes on Thanksgiving food! He's so passionate about it that he wanted everyone to know a few weeks early.

He and Taylor also talk about Jon's recent trip to the Lion's game where he got to hang out on the field and chum it up with his heroes. Meanwhile, Taylor was teaching teens about Jesus and using Jon as an example. Womp womp.

Fr. Jared Cooke returns as guest to brag about his trip to Disney and also revisit the topic of obedience...how important and how difficult it is for our spiritual growth.

Forte Catholic Ep 159-Kanye and turning 30 w/Oscar IIX Rivera

November 1, 2019

Taylor turned 30 this week! Liv Harrison cohosts as they discuss how looking back on the last decade brought Taylor joy.

Our guest this week is Oscar IIX Rivera. He is a youth minister, speaker and musician that Taylor has known for years because of a mutual friend but the story of them actually meeting is strange. Oscar has been influential in the Steubenville Conferences where Taylor had his conversation so they reminisce and then discuss how holiness is just being a carbon copy of a saint. Find Oscars videos, social links and more at oscartwoten.com.

In the final segment, two white people talk about Kanye's new album because that's what everyone wants, right? Enjoy!

Forte Catholic Ep 158-Joke Fest, Homily Interruptions & Wrecking Ball God w/Amanda Vernon

October 25, 2019

Fr. Anthony Sciarappa cohosts in what may be our fastest paced joke fest ever recorded! We chat about our weekends including a tall hat guy, preaching to plants, angry Taylor, terrible travel and making Fr. Anthony speechless.

Our guest this week is recording artist Amanda Vernon! She's doing great work as the Catholic Alycia Keys through her music and new book "When God Wrecks Your Romance." She somehow gets Fr. Anthony to recall his dating life before the priesthood and it was beautiful to watch unfold. She is an absolute joy with a fun life story to share unlike any you've heard before. (AmandaVernon.com)

In the final segment, we check in to see if Fr. Anthony is giving any good homilies lately and Taylor gets to live the dream of what every lay person has wanted to do during homilies since the dawn of time. Enjoy as you live vicariously though Taylor.

Forte Catholic Ep 157-New Saints, Clumsy Theosis & a Fully Alive Man

October 18, 2019

Cohost Shaun McAfee was our live correspondent from Rome at the canonization of five new saints this week! He shares about the new saints and the experience of being there. Taylor just shares how the Pope is now a football fan and won him money.

Richaél Lucero, host of the Clumsy Theosis Podcast, joins the show to explain why she is clumsy and what or who a theosis is. But mostly her and Taylor just team up to make fun of Shaun. (ClumsyTheosis.net)

In the final segment, Jake Stanley of Man Fully Alive Ministries joins the show to defend his nefarious cohost and share the impact reading Scripture daily has had on his life.

These are two of the most relaxed interviews we've ever done and felt like we were all just sitting around a fire drinking. And now that I'm done posting this, I'm going to have a drink now. Enjoy!

Forte Catholic Ep 156-Third Anniversary Show! Taylor’s theology test & Speaking to Sparrows

October 11, 2019

Allison Sullivan joins Taylor for the three year anniversary show!!!

Taylor took a 9th grade theology test and...it didn't go well.

Our guests this week are Janine McGann and Liz Sams to share about the film they created "Speaking to Sparrows." (speakingtosparrows.com) This was created for young women to reaffirm their worth in God and help them through their trials.

The final segment is, as Allison put it, "the squirreliest segment we've ever done." She tries to speak about what the Lord has revealed to her about waiting but instead they incessantly make fun of each other. It gets off the rails quick. Enjoy! ūüėä

Forte Catholic Ep 155-Hateful Catholics, superstitions & Dr. Peter Kreeft!!!

October 4, 2019

Liv Harrison is in studio as co-host. Over a decade ago, Taylor made a promise to himself never to do a certain thing again. He broke that rule for the first time this week. The amount of hate thrown around by Catholics this week necessitated a change of course. We have to be better than this...

Our guest this week is an absolute legend! Dr. Peter Kreeft has been at the head of Catholic thought for decades and was a huge influence on young Taylor. It was a honor to speak with him about his insanely impressive career and his new book Probes, written to help us dive deeper into the Gospel of John(obv the best one.)

In the final segment, Liv and Taylor lighten the mood from the first discussion by talking about strange Catholic superstitions, including a new one Taylor heard about this week.

Forte Catholic Ep 154-Fr Rob Galea, lost in prayer, imperfections and rock stars

September 28, 2019

Fr. Anthony was in a mood and boi did he deliver! In one of our funnier recent episodes, Taylor yells at Fr. Anthony for stealing his content which is a perfect segway into a conversation on imperfections.

Our guest this week made Fr. Anthony jealous because he's a more famous priest than him. Fr. Rob Galea is a world-renowned musician, speaker and media creator. He was the priest you may have seen on Australian X-Factor, has performed for the Pope and still finds time to hear confessions. He shares the story of redemption that led him from gangs, addiction and depression to a beautiful life in the priesthood. Check him out at FRGMinistry.com.

We have a special treat this episode in having TWO guests! Everett Fritz(EverettFritz.com) rejoins the show to talk about common struggles we have in knowing what to say in personal prayer and the difficulty Catholics often have with praise. He shows us we actually know more than we think we do.

BONUS-Due to Fr. Anthony's big boi mood, the commercials in this episode are straight fire!!!

Our guest is Kathryn Whitaker to talk about her new book "Live Big, Love Bigger: Getting Real with BBQ, Sweet Tea and a Whole Lotta Jesus."

Katie Prejean McGrady rejoins the show to talk about one of her and Taylor's favorite books, Ready Player One. This dystopian future(which may not be too far off) sheds light on our connections to technology and how to avoid those pitfalls.

In the final segment, Jon and Taylor discuss Christian Leadership by focusing on an unsung hero in the Early Church, Barnabas.

September 6, 2019

Shaun McAfee cohosts as Taylor shares controversial takes on this past weekend's Gospel and his thoughts on the movie Rocky. Jesus tries to tell a parable this week but it's actually just a veil to give advice. Taylor started his binge watch of the Rocky movies and has strong takes on the first two installments.

Our guest this week is Rachel Bulman (@rachelbulman) to share her tremendous life story of being born in the Philippines, adopted by an Assembly of God pastor and eventually her journey into the Catholic Church.

Forte Catholic Ep 150-Celebrating 150 episodes w/Fr. Anthony and multiple surprise guests

August 30, 2019

We made it 150 episodes! Fr. Anthony and Taylor celebrate by looking back at some of the best memories of the show with the help of many of our listeners who submitted their answers on social media.

The guys are also joined by two fan favorites returning to the show after long last to reminisce, laugh, talk odd Scriptures and more. We also have someone, who has been influential to the show before it even began, make their debut on the air.

We finish off the show with Taylor and Fr. Anthony dueling in a game of Biblical City or Sith Lord, hosted by the most insane game host of all time.

We hope you enjoy this episode that was an absolute blast to create. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for listening. Whether you've been on the train for years or are new to the show, I truly thank you for sticking with us. In Christ, Taylor

Forte Catholic Ep 149-Mary Lenaburg, Encounter Texas Conference & Pre-evangelization

August 23, 2019

Allison Sullivan cohosts as Taylor shares about his crazy week of starting school, working a retreat and the Encounter Texas conference all in the span of five days! Even through the sleep deprivation, he had some really cool moments in prayer, including crying(again…yep…) It was a beautiful reminder of some of the most basic truths of the Gospel.

Our guest this week is Mary Lenaburg, one of Allison‚Äôs favorite people on the planet! She is a leading speaker and author with a profound story of walking with God through some very difficult situations. She shares the story behind her new book, ‚ÄúBeing Brave in the Scared: How I Learned to Trust God in the Most Difficult Days of My Life.‚ÄĚ Her‚Äôs is one of the most powerful stories of leaning into God within the depths of despair, frustration, anger and loss.

In the final segment, Taylor and Allison talk about a new ministry they helped created with their local parish all for evangelization and the often forgotten pre-evangelization. They talk about why they saw a need for this ministry and the fruits they’ve seen from it already.

Forte Catholic Ep 148-The Struggle is Real w/Liv Harrison and Catholic Magician Giancarlo Bernini

August 16, 2019

Liv Harrison guest cohosts this week!. Taylor gives an update on the crying, shares about spiritual direction and how it led to him watching Friends on Netflix instead of praying(dang it!) and locking his keys in his car...again.

Our guest this week is Catholic Magician Giancarlo Bernini. He is a college senior who is using his love and passion for illusions as an avenue to talk about the transcendentals(truth, beauty, and goodness). He was recently on the hit TV show Penn and Teller Fool Us! This young man is already doing great things to evangelization by reaching a crowd Catholics are not often found in and it's only going to continue to grow!

Liv and Taylor finish up the show by switching from sharing about Taylor's struggles to Liv's. They also discuss the hilarity and difficulty of working in teams and how that mirrors the Body of Christ.

Forte Catholic Ep 147-Millennial Jesus, crying, youth ministry & video games

August 9, 2019

Jon Blevins co-hosts on his one year anniversary of first appearing on the show! Taylor shares why he's been crying while listening to podcasts in the woods and wonders if he's progressing or digressing as a human.

In the second segment, we're joined by Brian Montfort of the Work To Game YouTube channel. With two of the biggest names in Catholic gaming, the guys chat about some of the pitfalls of gaming, how to avoid them and ultimately while they still play. Taylor tries to make strange comparisons between video games and the Church. Does it work? That's up to you to decide.

In the final segment(recorded three hours later), Taylor shares that his deepest recent spiritual insight is that Jesus is a millennial which leads "seamlessly" into a conversation of a conference Jon went to recently about how to engage youth culture. This leads to a more broad conversation about how we live our lives between action and inaction.

Forte Catholic Ep 146-Have we misunderstood integrity?

Forte Catholic Ep 146-Have we misunderstood integrity?

August 2, 2019

Everyone loves it when Taylor gets thrown off, and cohost Shaun McAfee delivers! In an episode building towards a conversation on what real integrity is and how we may have been setting ridiculous standards for ourselves, Shaun instead wants to start the show by peeling back the curtain on some updates to the intro Taylor has had to implement.

We also talk about our failures as parents, scary Churches, share the most insane promotion ever and are joined by the host of Catholic Sports Radio, Bruce Wawrzyniak, to talk about...well...Catholicism, sports and radio.

Tune in for a lighthearted and fun conversation that gets real real fast.
