E5 Mythbusters: Seminary Edition w/ Matt Kane
Mythbusters: Seminary Edition w/ Matt Kane
Seventh-year seminarian Matt Kane (Diocese of Colorado Springs) joins me to talk about his journey to the priesthood, his personal experience of receiving a call to ordination, and vocational discernment, before busting some prevalent myths about seminary life. (Do seminarians just study the Bible all the time? Are seminaries anti-science? Do the students wander around muttering in Latin?!) We also talk about the empty world of Sam Harris, and Matt reflects on what it's like to be pursuing a vocation in a Church, marred by the wounds of scandal, and why he's more excited than ever to be a priest who can help rebuild.
