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

The Frank Friar - Episode 121: Saint John Paul II and the Holy Spirit

The episode today is going out on the feast day of Saint John Paull II.  I speak about my experience with him in the episode today.  My biggest experience revolves around his encyclical on the Holy Spirit that he released in 1986.  It was a document that helped me out a lot during my novitiate year within the Carmelite Order.   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 120: A Mountain Peak and How we See

Recently, I’ve been preparing a talk I am offering to a group of Carmelite sisters. Today, I offer the first part of that insight that deals with a mountain and how we are called to see. The need for us to change and be open to a shift in ways of journeying and our perspective need to be open to the conversation process. Let us not be afraid for the new journey our Lord is always calling us too. If you like my podcast, please make sure to subscribe to the podcast it really does help me.

The Frank Friar - Episode 117: Talking About Suicide

Today, I am talking about suicide. Why? Because, a family member of mine committed suicide at the beginning of the month of September. I am from a rural culture and this is a word people do not talk about, for many reasons. Yet, I believe the fear from speaking about this topic keeps things in the darkness and might continue a cycle of pain.
