Setting the Record Straight - Mozart A Devout Catholic? It Fits. - 11/17/18

November 17, 2018

Have you ever listened to Mozart? Not the music but what he said in his many letters. Just listen to him! “I have always had God before my eyes!”  And this. "If you thought how lucky were those who received the Eucharist, and at the communion the music spoke in quiet joy from the hearts of those kneeling there . Benedictus qui venit…”.  When he set the words of the Mass to music, he wrote,”…it comes to you and moves your soul!”

Off the Shelf with Pete Socks - Episode 99 with Fr. Mark Toups

November 16, 2018

We haven't dived into our Thanksgiving feasts yet but this week we are going to talk about Advent. I wanted to give everyone the opportunity to get their hands on the excellent Advent journal from Fr Mark Toups Rejoice: Advent Meditations with Mary. Fr Mark and I take a look at why it is important to include Mary in our Advent journey to Christmas, why Christmas day is an event rather than a single 24 hour occurrence, and how we can effectively dive into scripture to build a lifelong rewarding habit of journaling.

Forte Catholic Ep 109-Coolest Monk Ever rejoins the show, keeping things simple & humble

November 16, 2018

Fr. Anthony Sciarappa co-hosts(WHAT!?!?!) as we talk about what Taylor learned about keeping things simple from the high school students he was on retreat with this weekend. (The students may or may not have been a little comically confused)

In the second segment, we are joined by a listener favorite Fr. Augustine Wetta. He rejoins the show(from his high school classroom with actual students in it) to talk about his new novel "The Eighth Arrow" which explores what it would be like if Odysseus from the Odyssey was in Dante's Inferno. The book is a thoroughly entertaining jailbreak story, full of allusions to great works of old and the lessons contained. A segment with the monk who breaks all monk stereotypes is always entertaining.

In the final segment, Taylor and Fr. Anthony bring back the "Mass Text" segment to revisit this past Sunday's readings, see how Father's homily went, discuss being bad at humility & why truths survive the test of time.

Thanks for listening! If you enjoyed it, please subscribe, leave a review, & share with someone you think will also enjoy it. For exclusive bonus content, check out our Patreon community at Patreon.com/ForteCatholic.

Forming Faithful Families: Episode 29

November 16, 2018

The Breath of Prayer
Warning: An analogy of St. Augustine is mentioned relative to the nuptials of Jesus with His Bride the Church on the Cross which could be considered sexually explicit by some more sensitive listeners. We do not think there is any problem, but you can be the judge of the sensitivities of your listeners. God bless you.

Questions

  • 04:33 - I’m in RCIA and I feel like there isn’t a place for me in the Church if I’m not married, or that God won’t be able to use me until I find my vocation. Any advice?
  • 11:04 - My wife and I were married outside the Church. After that we both became Catholic (I had previously been baptized, she had not). Should we refrain from Communion because we were married outside the Church?
  • 18:57 - If angels have perfect knowledge of God and they have free will, why would some rebel and some not?
  • 34:45 - Who is the Queen of Heaven referred to in Jeremiah 44?
  • 39:50 - We often use Maccabees to support the doctrine of Purgatory. But since Protestants don’t accept that book as scriptural, is there a better defense of Purgatory?
  • 50:26 - My boyfriend and I used to be married (outside the Church). We were both baptized. He is the process of becoming Catholic and I am considering it. Is our original marriage valid and are we still actually married?
