The Frank Friar - Episode 278: Eyes that See in Wisdom

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).

I speak about something that appears different about their situations from the parable in the podcast episode today.

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.

July 8, 2020

We all will die. This is a reality that we as Christians need to reflect upon every day of our life. By reflecting upon our death via the light of faith our hearts can grow in hope.

Because, we need to, so we can better care for the neighbors around us today during the pandemic.
