The goal of Forte Catholic is to #MakeCatholicismFunAgain. No matter where you are on your journey with God we want to help you take the next step by inspiring, uplifting, and sharing the Good News…all while laughing along the way. There is a weekly theme discussion, guest interviews from Catholic leaders from across the world and fun segments like “Unpublished Worship Songs”, the ForteFive countdown, “Who Was Paying Attention in Mass” on the weekly readings and much more. 

Taylor Schroll is a Catholic speaker, worship leader, radio host, track coach and avid gamer. He is a full-time missionary in Central Texas where he lives with his smoking hot wife Samantha and three beautiful kids(thanks wife). His goal in life is to Make Catholicism Fun Again by sharing the Joy of the Gospel and how we can live in the freedom that Christ won for us.

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

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’s 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, “Being Brave in the Scared: How I Learned to Trust God in the Most Difficult Days of My Life.” Her’s 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

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

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?

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.
