EP6 - Doin Work and Facing Your Weaknesses w/ Fr. Stephen J. Gadberry

Alto by Libertas is inspired by the Italian phrase "Verso l'alto", which means "to the heights" and is inspired by the heroic life of Pier Giorgio Frassati. Listen to conversations on Faith, Culture, Fitness and Mission-Driven Entrepreneurship that will help us pursue "the heights" together.

Fr. Stephen Gadberry is a Catholic priest in the Diocese of Little Rock, Arkansas. While studying at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome he specialized in the Theology and Spirituality of St. Augustine and Joseph Ratzinger. He is an avid Crossfit practitioner, hunter and competed on the hit television show American Ninja Warrior. He is also an Air Force veteran who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2007 and as a fellow of Bishop Robert Barron's Word on Fire Institute.

In our conversation we touch on various compelling topics, some of which are Fr. Gadberry's story: from the Air Force to the Priesthood, hard work, fitness and Crossfit, and competing on American Ninja Warrior. But perhaps the most powerful parts of our conversation is when Fr. Gadberry shares on facing our weaknesses to grow and succeeding even in failure. Fr. Gadberry is a special, humble and unique person. I know this one is going to inspire and motivate you!
