The Frank Friar - Episode 199: Saving Our Names

Recently, we heard at the Mass the parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man. The reflection I offer today is about the lack of a name for the rich man. What does his lacking a name mean? Names have a power that we must not overlook. Know that I will be praying for you.

The Frank Friar - Episode 198: Cultivating Gratitude

During this past week I tried to give thanks to the friends in my life.  In the episode today I speak about what action I took to express gratitude and how it may help us in our lives of friendship.  I know during my recovery if it was not for my friends I would be in a worse place.

The Frank Friar - Episode 197: Distractions and Numbness

Today, I speak about the temptation to embrace things that bring about distractions and numbness in our lives to distract us from the suffering we are in currently.  What brought about this reflection is the current pain I am dealing with because of my amputation.  We are called before the Cross, how will you respond to yours?

The Frank Friar - Episode 196: Creating Monsters

Recently, I saw a movie called “Freaks”.  It is a film based in a world were some people have super human abilities.  The world of this film rejects these abnormal people.  That fear and hate creates a monster.  That reality of hate and its impact is not unlike our own.  That topic of hate, sin and the social impact is something I address in the episode today.

The Frank Friar - Episode 194: Christ at the Sunset

During this past week at the day masses we’ve been hearing from Luke 4.  After the healing of St. Peter’s mother-in-law we are told at sunset Christ begins to heal the sick and drive out demons.  What does this scene of Christ’s life teach us about darkness in the life of the christian?  I tackle that question in the episode today.

The Frank Friar - Episode 193: The Movement of the Senses

My physical therapist recently told me an interesting factoid about dogs.  That factoid (spoken about in the episode) got me thinking about the role of the senses in our lives.  The senses play such a big a role.  The importance of the sense is what I speak about in the episode today.  If that factoid I false please let me know.

For the episode I reflect on Luke 14: 7-11.  This was the passage from the Mass this past weekend (22nd week in ordinary time).  This was the first passage I ever read from the bible.  I speak about that experience and now it impacted me in the episode today.
