This is an awesome story! 🙌

On this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, Sam Guzman and John Heinen discuss the expansion of atheism in our culture, the order of white monks, and discerning God’s will with Cistercian monk, Fr. John Bayer.

Fr. Bayer shares his discernment story, and explains his years as a monk and “his passion for discerning the balance between faith and reason.”

The guys also discuss these topics:

  • Correctly harmonizing faith and reason
  • How modern atheists deny themselves
  • Inspiring people with lost faith
  • How we sometimes need a “good butt-kicking” to understand God
