The Frank Friar - Episode 189: Entering the Narrow Gate

I am reflecting on the Gospel passage (Lk. 13: 22-30) from the precious Sunday mass. Christ calls us to enter through the narrow gate. What is the narrow gate? How do we enter through it? These are a few questions I wrestle with in the episode today.

The Frank Friar - Episode 188: Love is Revelatory

Love, via the symbol of fire, teaches us something important about God’s love. God’s love and thus the love of God is revelatory. True love always reveals. Those outside the bounds of the Church may reject God’s love because they do not wish to see themselves in the light of that love. Today, I speak about that conflict and what must our Christian response be in the world.

The Frank Friar - Episode 187: Loving as a Christian

The world puts forth a message/image of love that falls utterly short of what Christian love is. In the episode today I speak about the issue of love and what it calls forth from the Christian. Love is a challenge, but it is a challenge we do not meet alone. God is always with us who turn towards Him in humility.

The Frank Friar - Episode 186: An Unsentimental Hope

We are people of hope because we are children of God. But what does that mean to be hopeful? In a world consumed by seeking certain feelings that desire can easily twist notions relationship to the gifts of faith, hope and love. Today I talk about the necessity of hope particularly hope that is not chasing after certain feelings and sentiments.

The Frank Friar - Episode 185: A Humble Child

Today I am recording from rural Michigan. I wanted to make a quick little podcast episode about experience I had after a Mass from this past weekend at my home parish. The child had an amazing story to tell me and the way she told it to me was quite striking. I hope you find her witness as impressive as I did.
