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

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

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?

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.

Forte Catholic Ep 145-Yelling Bible Verses & Catholicism in the NFL w/Dave Neeson

July 26, 2019

Taylor and Allison Sullivan discuss their recent travel, share stories including her getting tackled in an airport and him being better than her lol. This leads to a conversation on Catholic Social Teaching and how it gets a bad rap.

Our guest this week is Dave Neeson, a youth minister who's side hustle is cooler than anyone else's. He works with Catholic Athletes for Christ, an organization that makes sure every Catholic in the NFL has access to the faith, especially the Sacraments, throughout the season. His stories involving some of our favorite sports heroes being die-hard Catholics are really inspiring.(catholicathletesforchrist.org)

In the final segment, Taylor and Allison face off in a duel of the Forte Five segment! They countdown their top five bible verses that they would yell in public! There's a point to all this madness....we promise!

Forte Catholic Ep 144-Fr Anthony & Tea with Tolkien Break the Catholic Internet

July 19, 2019

Fr. Anthony co-hosts as he and Taylor start the show looking back at crappy situations and realizing how they actually helped us. It gives us insight into how we handle these difficult situations.

Then in the second segment, we welcome back(to Fr. Anthony's surprise) Kaitlyn Facista, lovingly known as Tea with Tolkien! With the King and Queen of Catholic Twitter united, our goal is to break the internet, and challenge Matt Fradd's kingdom! We talk the video game versions of Tolkien, uncover how little Taylor actually knows about LOTR and Kaitlyn saves a sinking ship by taking over and showing us how Catholic thought is immersed in the Silmarillion.

In the final segment, college freshmen Blaine Tamez rejoins the show to talk about some of the issues he's been seeing in our social media culture and makes Fr. Anthony do layman things. It's beautiful.

Forte Catholic Ep 143-Saints Game & the return of Bearded Blevins w/Leo Gallegos

July 12, 2019

The Return of the King! Co-host Jonathan "Bearded" Blevins is back after a two month hiatus(cuz he's too cool traveling the world sharing the Gospel smh). We catch up by talking about his trips across the world, including eating hot wings on stage while being interviewed and his trip to Germany. I also yell at him, so there's that.

In the second segment, we're joined by Leo Gallegos to hear his story about how improving his physical wellness did wonders for his personal life, faith and family. The three of us have a conversation about the interconnectedness of mind, body and spirit. Find out everything Leo has going on at libertasalive.com.

In the final segment, Jon and Taylor play a "guess that saint" game with the help of new saint cards from Andy "Shaggy" Korty. These cards are beautiful! They're much better than Jon and Taylor are at this game, that's for sure. Enjoy them both epically fail but one of them, in particular, gets slaughtered at the game. Then head over to Patreon.com/fortecatholic to join as a supporter of the show and get your saint card today!

Our guest this week is DJ Bernal. He works full-time as a leadership consultant at a hospital. He also travels to share the Gospel and biblical principles of leadership. During our conversation, DJ takes us through the story of David, how he faltered as a leader and how we can avoid the same pitfalls.

Forte Catholic Ep 140-Reverence vs. Familiarity & Sam Guzman of the Catholic Gentleman

June 21, 2019

Fr. Anthony co-hosts and Taylor has been saving a story for a month just for this moment with Padre. He shares a story of attending a Mass that had some odd quirks and made him think about the relationship between reverence and familiarity with Christ and how the two can sometimes feel at odds.

This week’s guest is Sam Guzman of the Catholic Gentleman to explain to Taylor what toxic masculinity actually is and how to change it. Sam has been doing great stuff for Catholic men for years. Be sure to check out his website with all kinds of resources for Catholic dudes. (catholicgentleman.net)

In the final segment, the guys talk about imaginative prayer, Taylor’s struggles with it and we laugh at/with Peter(what’s new?). This is a new style of prayer for Taylor and Fr. Anthony is quite encouraging(yep, you read that right).

Allison Sullivan joins Taylor as this week's cohost! They kick off the show by making fun of each other for quite some time and then Allison reacts to a ridiculous and funny cemetery story(weird right?)

Then we're joined by one of Allison's good friends, Chris Field. We were honored to be in the studio with this man! He holds four Guinness World records, author of "Disrupting for Good," has given two TedX talks and founded the Mercy Project(mercyproject.net) which literally frees people from slavery. He's an amazing man and he comes to talk about the One Hope Movement(onehopemovement.com) that is happening in Central Texas, focused on unity and evangelization.

Allison and Taylor finish the show by discussing how to deal with haters. They turn to the story of the Alabaster Jar to be encouraged not to hide our specific gifts from others.

Liv Harrison is back as guest co-host! Her and Taylor start the show by sharing their odd confession/adoration experience minutes before the show started. It was wild and sparks a discussion on distractions when trying to be holy.

The rest of the show, we talk about community & friendship. These are topics we've all heard about ad nauseam but with some new wrinkles that we new to the hosts and made for an interesting conversation. It gave us great insight into some issues we have had before in relationships and tiffs. Tune in to laugh, learn a bit about yourself & your friends and....uh...laugh again.

In this special edition of the show, we have two different co-hosts, and in person interview & only two segments(cuz we weren't stopping that interview. It was priceless)

We start with Shaun McAfee and Taylor talking about why we focus on the negative in situations that are mostly positive. We also have a sneak peek into some of the closest matchups in the ministry madness bracket.
 

In the next segment, Allison Sullivan and guest Liv Harrison join Taylor in studio for one of the wildest interviews we've done. They laugh, walk through a hilarious conflict and it's implications on how we deal with conflict in day to day situations.
