The End

This is the last episode with our beloved Catholic Bytes Trio and they will be discussing the word telos and it’s very profound meaning.

Our understanding of what our end is, determines how we lives our lives. We are made with an end in mind, and that end must shape the way we live. We can’t live open ended…despite what Miley Cyrus tries to tell us in The Climb.

Tune in to hear how Jesus lived his life with his end in mind and some reminiscing from the early days of Catholic Bytes.

A Danger for the Devout – Acedia

In this episode we discuss acedia as described by Evagrius of Pontus. We often hear it described as sloth or laziness, but a more accurate understanding is “sadness”, “despondency”, or “despair”. Laziness is a symptom and not the sin itself. Fr. Rob
