You have spent many years listening to the man behind the mic, Fr. Conrad, so let’s take this opportunity to learn a bit about him and his work outside of the podcast!
The podcast formerly known as Catholic Bytes. A podcast for busy Catholics. A mix of short, informative episodes, long form interviews, and interesting historical episodes. Wherever you are in your faith, we have content for you!
001 CL – Meet Fr. Rob
Welcome to our “first” Catholic-Link podcast with your regular host, Fr. Conrad, introducing the new host, Fr. Robert Adams (a voice you should recognize).
Habemus Papam: Episode 202 – Innovent VII
A brief papacy caught up with Roman conflicts and unable to end the schism.
Habemus Papam: Episode 201 – Boniface IX
The Schism continues and Rome is coming back a little bit, but there is a long way to go.
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.
This should be interesting…

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
