The Frank Friar - Episode 114: Growing in Faith

Today, I reflect on the readings from the 24th Sunday of ordinary time year B. We here a strong message about faith. Faith that is a gift, which is meant to be lived in the world as a means of sharing God’s love. All of this goes around the question that Jesus asked his disciples “who do you say that I am?” This is a question we are called to answer in our own lives today.

The Frank Friar - Episode 111: Being a Trustworthy Steward

Today, I offer a reflection on 1st Cor. 4: 1-5. This passage has been on my mind and in my heart since the news about ex-Cardinal McCarrick broke. The Church, also, had this reading offered at one of Her weekly Masses. I know I will always be a priest because of the sacrament, but I know if people do not trust me, I cannot be their priest. A hard truth I think all clergy needs to hear. If you like my podcast please make sure to subscribe to the podcast it really does help me.
