Episode 49: Faith and Reason in a Godless Age (w/ Fr. John Bayer, O. Cist.)

In this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, Sam and John discuss the growth in atheism, the order of white monks, and discerning God’s will. We are joined by a Cistercian Monk, Fr. John Bayer, who shares his incredible story of discernment in where God was clearly seeking him. We dive into his years as a monk and his passion for discerning the balance between Faith and Reason.

In this episode we discuss;

  • How do we harmonize Faith and Reason correctly
  • How modern atheists have to deny themselves
  • Learn to inspire those that have lost their faith
  • How a good butt-kicking can help us understand God
  • And more…
