The Frank Friar - Episode 170: Rejoicing in the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Giver of Life as our creed teaches us. The divine life is possible to us in the Spirit through the life of Christ. The divine life is not something waiting for us but a gift we receive now and grow in as we follow the lead of the Spirit in this life. From that relationship, thanks be to Christ, we can be a rejoicing people. Why? Because in the Spirit we will rise, a reality and a promise made know via the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Frank Friar - Episode 169: The Celestial Choir: Our Place in it via The Holy Spirit

We are a pilgrim people. This movement is not about a distance but about a state of being. We are called to be like Christ. This state of being is only possible the sanctification offers to us by the Holy Spirit. I talk about that work of the Spirit and how through it we can take up our place in the celestial choir.

The Frank Friar - Episode 168: You Are Not Atlas: The Need to Embrace the Fear of the Lord

I recently wrote an article on the Spirit’s gift of piety. Since, my time working on that article my mind has been going over the other gifts, in particularly the gift of the fear of the Lord. I talk about that gift today in the light of a condition I see among people and myself I call the “Atlas Complex.” Pentecost is approaching let us offer some time to think about what it means to have the Holy Spirit dwelling in our hearts.

The Frank Friar - Episode 166: Words, Conformity and the Dangers of Normalcy

Words have power. Not the same power as a fist, but power none the less. Each society uses language to cultivate a way of life that it thinks is the best. Yet, St. Paul calls us not to become conformed to the world (Rom. 12: 1-3). How have we become confirmed to the world is an important question each Christian must ask themselves. Today, I call out the danger of conforming to the vision of normalcy that others may place upon us.

The Frank Friar - Episode 164: Marian Day 2019 and the Need for Docility

Here is a bit of a longer podcast episode. The episode is a recording from my recent conference for the Lay Carmelites of our Province. I speak about docility. That is the virtue and the lens for the talk. There is a Q/A part at the end of the conference. You will notice I stumble over my words sometimes because my mind goes faster then my tongue. I hope you enjoy this conference and helps you along your faith journey.
