The Frank Friar - Episode 278: Eyes that See in Wisdom

My mind is still stewing over the Gospel from this past Sunday, the 17th Sunday in ordinary time year A (Mt. 13: 44-52). We hear about a man finding a treasure in a field and another finding a pearl of great price. I speak about something that appears different about their situations from the parable in the podcast episode today.If you like my podcast, please make sure to subscribe to the podcast it really does help me.

The Frank Friar - Episode 277: Conflict and Courage

This episode goes out on the memorial of BL. Titus Brandsma. He was a Carmelite from Holland. He was killed during WWII by the Nazis in Dachua. He was a man that offers a great witness to the need of courage in a world that calls those of faith to become conformed to it. I use some wisdom from Bl. Titus as a way for us to understand that movement we will have to undergo between conflict and courage in our current times.If you like my podcast, please make sure to subscribe to the podcast it really does help me.

The Frank Friar - Episode 276: A Knocked Down Memorial

Recently, at one of the parishes I work at a person knocked down a memorial stone on our property. I speak about that today and a possible response toward the person that did it. Why is joy important during this time? I try to address that and our Christian response in the episode today. If you like my podcast, please make sure to subscribe to the podcast it really does help me.

The Frank Friar - Episode 275: God Meeting Us Where We are At

This episode is going out on the feast day of St. Elijah! The Carmelites celebrate him on July 20th every year. Thus, for the episode today I wanted to speak a little bit about him. The title of the episode is a little hint of the insight I think we can gain from him.

The Frank Friar - Episode 274: The Scapular and Our Place With Mary

The episode today goes out the day before the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. I speak about the Gospel passage we Carmelites use on that feast, along with a perspective on the Brown Scapular of our Lady. Remember, a devotion to the Brown Scapular always brings us to a special and need place with our Lady.If you like my podcast, please make sure to subscribe to the podcast it really does help me.

The Frank Friar - Episode 273: Magnanimity

Recently, I was reading the Matthean version of the Sower and the Seeds. While stewing over that passage my mind kept going to the virtue of magnanimity. A virtue we do not hear about much but need so badly in our times. I speak about that virtue today in this episode.If you like my podcast, please make sure to subscribe to the podcast it really does help me.

The Frank Friar - Episode 272: We All Shall Die

We all will die. This is a reality that we as Christians need to reflect upon every day of our life. By reflecting upon our death via the light of faith our hearts can grow in hope. And from that hope makes the possibility of love evermore intensified. Why am I talking about this today? Because, we need to, so we can better care for the neighbors around us today during the pandemic.
