The Frank Friar - Episode 128: The Disharmony of the Devil

Recently, I saw an Opera at the Met called Mephistophele.  This opera was an Italian adaptation of the German play called Faust.  Today, I talk about the role of music and the role of the devil in this opera.  The work of the devil reminds us the importance of beauty in our lives.  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 127: We Can Be The Widows

My mind and heart are stewing a lot on the story of Elijah and the widow of Zarephath.  This was a reading that we had at the Mass on Sunday.  In a way, I think we need to have the disposition of the widow because we are the widow.  I talk about that insight today and the dangers of feeling we are owed things from others and God.

The Frank Friar - Episode 125: Let’s Talk about the D word

In light of All Souls day I wanted to talk about the “D” word today.  Not a fun topic, but a necessary one.  Let us not fear this word or how it impacts our reality.  When we remain true to Christ, we will always remain in His Light.

The Frank Friar - Episode 122: The Void of the Heart and God’s Will

For weeks, the Spirit is asking me to focus on and sit with the 4th line of the Our Father “Thy Will Be Done.”  The wait and the challenge of this line is being revealed to my heart and the need for humility.  I talk about this line and offer an insight from the Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity today.    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
