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.

The Frank Friar - Episode 163: Limb loss, Chaos, and The Book of Revelation

I’m Back. I apologize for being away for two months, but I did loss a limb (I type that with humor). In the podcast today, I talk a little bit about losing a limb and the chaos it is causing me. Within that chaos our recent reading from the Book of Revelation at the recent Sunday Mass has been helpful for me. So, I speak about it. I hope my thoughts help you on our faith journey.

The Frank Friar - Episode 162: Washed in the Blood of Christ Preparing for Confession

Recently, I was reading the book Divine Intimacy by Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D.  He was writing about confession in the light of the Sacred Blood of Jesus.  This is an important image for us to carry during Lent as we embrace the gift that is the sacrament of confession.  If you like my podcast, please make sure to subscribe to the podcast it really does help me.  You can find more of my content at my website www.thefrankfriar.com and my YouTube at www.youtube.com/c/thefrankfriar

The Frank Friar - Episode 161: Confronting Our Idols of Jesus

During the 2nd Sunday of Lent we here about the Transfiguration of Christ.  This moment within the life of Christ offers the disciple so many insights to the heart of Christ that this moment can never be exhausted.  Today, I offer an insight from a Carmelite perspective that speaks about living a life when we are given moments before the glory of God.  These moments do present to us a danger we must always be careful about within our lives of discipleship.  If you like my podcast, please make sure to subscribe to the podcast it really does help me.  You can find more of my content at my website www.thefrankfriar.com and my YouTube at www.youtube.com/c/thefrankfriar

The Frank Friar - Episode 160: A Humiliated People

Recently, I went to a Jewish Community Center event on the book of Exodus.  Many things were discussed that night, but a topic came up that really struck me.  That topic was humiliation.   In the episode today, I discuss why that topic struck me and why it is important for us to be aware of your own humiliations that arise from sin.  If you like my podcast, please make sure to subscribe to the podcast it really does help me.  You can find more of my content at my website www.thefrankfriar.com and my YouTube at www.youtube.com/c/thefrankfriar

The Frank Friar - Episode 159: Seeing His Face Via the Fast

Pain is something we all must deal with during our lives.  Fasting plays a key role in our understanding of pain.  How we see impacts how we move.  If our gaze is upon Christ, we move with him.  If our gaze in other things we move away from him.  Fasting impacts and shapes our ability to gaze upon Christ and thank him.  These are just a few things I speak about in the episode today.
