The Frank Friar - Episode 204: Cultivating Vocations

October 16, 2019

My province has begun our year of vocations.  The episode today is about that topic of vocation.  My thoughts come at the request of a listener who reached out to me via my social media account.  We all play a role in helping people to hear the presence of God, may we continue to be a source of support for those discerning vocations in the Church.

The Frank Friar - Episode 203: Our Healer

Christ is our healer.  Christ as our healer is the theme for this episode today. The foundation for this reflection comes from the Gospel reading we heard at the Mass this past weekend (28th Sunday in Ordinary time Year C).  We are all broken and in need of healing.  Fortunately, for us the hands of our king are healing hands.

September 30, 2019

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 196: Creating Monsters

September 18, 2019

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

September 11, 2019

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.

August 26, 2019

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

The Frank Friar - Episode 188: Love is Revelatory

August 21, 2019

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

August 19, 2019

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

August 14, 2019

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.

August 12, 2019

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.
