Sean Bryan is most known for his participation in the hit TV show American Ninja Warrior, where he has taken on the identity of the "Papal Ninja," stealthily taking on his role in the mission of the Church to evangelize the world. Sean received his Bachelor’s of Arts at UC Berkeley, where he studied physics and was on the men’s gymnastics team. He completed his Master of Arts in Theology with a Salesian Studies concentration at the Dominican School of Philosophy & Theology. His Masters thesis analyzed the ecclesiology inherent to documents of the Second Vatican Council, and proposes the Scriptural notion of liturgy as an interpretive lens that elucidates the relationship between formal ritual worship and its integrated expression in everyday life. His exploration led to practical applications geared toward the animation of the faithful in the Church’s mission, including the Lay Mission Project: an in-depth disciple-community formation experience that enables the laity to live the faith in their daily lives, foster strong relationships, and transform your world. In his spare time, Sean co-founded Traverse Fitness, a ninja warrior gym that trains the current, and next generation of obstacle course racers, many of whom are underprivileged kids whose memberships are discounted and subsidized through donations.

Dr. Kevin Vost joins us to address the huge rise in diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, liver disease, obesity, and other health-related illnesses in society today. We go into the false notion that you are either physically strong or mentally strong and that the integration of the two leads to a more grateful, loving, healthy, and holy life.

Fixing the Crisis of Lost Belief in the Eucharist

Podcast cover
Read more

Today John and Sam are joined by a Knight of the Holy Eucharist, Br. Angelo, to discuss the crisis of men losing their faith in the Eucharist. This is a problem that goes to the very depths of our Faith and is a non-negotiable teaching of Catholicism. Still, we find the majority of Catholic men not understanding or even believing in Christ's real presence in the Eucharist. With the help of Our Lady, we seek to correct this error and show men a way to deepen their understanding and ultimate love of Christ.

Masculinity, Perseverance, and Vocation with Fr. Roger Landry

Podcast cover
Read more

Today John is joined by a well-known priest and author to men, Fr. Roger Landry. We discuss his call to the priesthood, the abuse scandal in Boston, and how to avoid effeminacy as a man. We often associate effeminacy with men acting like women, but the reality, as St. Thomas Aquinas teaches, it is the vice directly opposed to perseverance and courage. How does this show itself today and how can we as men reject this vice?
