The Frank Friar - Episode 132: Your Priest Needs You

My last episode for the liturgical year! As I was preparing for this day my mind and heart kept going to the roughness for priests this past year.  Today, I make a call for all laity to aid, support, and pray for your priest.  I offer some concrete actions on what to do and why.  Thank you for your time and please keep me in your prayers.

The Frank Friar - Episode 131: The Revelation of Christ the King

Today, I give a reflection about the feast day of Christ the King.  Over the years, I find myself growing more in love with this feast.  Looking at the readings for that feast I see a beautiful unfolding of the paschal mystery which helps us to understand Christ as OUR king.  I offer those thoughts to you.

The Frank Friar - Episode 130: Having a Christian Household

I reflect upon an article from the November issue of First Things.  The article was called Reclaiming the Household by Prof. John Cuddeback.  He is a philosophy professor at Christendom College.  Here is a link to his website https://baconfromacorns.com/. In this article he writes about the concept or family and the household, where they are same but where they are different.  I share my personal thoughts from this article.  It really is a recommend reading.

The Frank Friar - Episode 129: Being Consecrated

On the 33rd Sunday of ordinary time year B we heard from the 10th chapter of the Letter to the Hebrews.  There was one word that jumped out to me: consecrated.  Today, I talk about this term and the catholic being consecrated to God.  May we never forget the blessing of our baptism 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 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 126: Struggling with Frustration

Today, I talk about some factions I see in the Church.  I try to put words to things I see and sense.  Also, I renew the call to prudence which I think is so necessary right now in our times that are being flooded with so much ambiguity.

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.
