The Frank Friar - Episode 295: Manus in Mano

October 26, 2020

Love and the extended hand is the image that I talk about in the episode today.  The call to love is not an option for a Christian.  So, the Latin phrase that is the title is a means of getting to that life in and for love.

The Frank Friar - Episode 294: Enduring in Hope

October 21, 2020

My mind is stewing a lot on 1st Thessalonians 1:3. This part of the St. Paul’s letter may be the first written thoughts on faith, hope, and love. In the episode today, I wrestle with his words and their call to have these gifts shape our current Christian lives as individuals and communities.

The Frank Friar - Episode 291: Psalm 23

The Frank Friar - Episode 291: Psalm 23

October 12, 2020

Psalm 23 is one I believe we are all familiar with, whether in word and/or images. God is our Shepherd, but when we come too familiar with something, I believe we should slow down and wrestle with it to journey deeper into what it is we hold close to us.

July 29, 2020

My mind is still stewing over the Gospel from this past Sunday, the 17th Sunday in ordinary time year A (Mt. 13: 44-52).

The Frank Friar - Episode 277: Conflict and Courage

July 27, 2020

This episode goes out on the memorial of BL. Titus Brandsma. He was a Carmelite from Holland. He was killed during WWII by the Nazis in Dachua. He was a man that offers a great witness to the need of courage in a world that calls those of faith to become conformed to it. I use some wisdom from Bl. Titus as a way for us to understand that movement we will have to undergo between conflict and courage in our current times.
