EP36 - An Epic Adventure, Endless Discovery, and the Wilderness Within w/ Fr. Nathan Sparks SJ, The Nomadic Monk

Alto by Libertas is inspired by the Italian phrase "Verso l'alto", which means "to the heights", emblematic of the heroic life of Italian mountaineer and social activist Pier Giorgio Frassati. Listen to raw and authentic conversations on Faith, Culture, Fitness and Mission-Driven Entrepreneurship that will help us pursue "the heights" together! Fr. Nathan Sparks, SJ is a Catholic priest and Jesuit who currently teaches Latin and Greek at Boston College High School. He grew up in South Dakota and has a degree in philosophy from St. Mary's University in Minnesota, a degree in theology from the Gregorian University in Rome, Italy and a masters degree in Ancient Greek and Latin from Columbia University in New York City. His studies and travels have led him to the Vatican, across Europe, the United States, the Holy Land, South America, and Asia. He is an experienced outdoorsman, adventurer, philosopher, writer, and traveler, who often finds God and inspiration for the spiritual journey in the midst of his solo backpacking and mountaineerings trips. He often documents them on Instagram on his profile @the.nomadic.monk, and is currently working on a travel log and spiritual adventuring series with CatholicTV. You can also find him on Facebook at "The Nomadic Monk" and on his blog at thenomadicmonk.com. Episode Themes: Epic Cross Country trip being made into an spiritual travel series with CatholicTV. Comprehensive and beautiful explanation of the Jesuit mantra Ad maiorem Dei gloriam (for the greater glory of God). A good adventure is an act of surrender and trust, and entails many unknowns and adversity. So much more great themes as well! Learn more about Fr.
