Friarly, started as a classroom project back in the Fall of 2010. We wanted to promote the preaching of our student friars who have the opportunity every weekend to preach on the readings from the Lectionary.

Here on Friarly, and through our podcast, we hope to engage with men and women around the world and to show them the passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ that we bring to this Friarly Life

    More Than Ordinary, More Than Amazing

    More Than Ordinary, More Than Amazing

    Do we realize how amazing ordinary people are? God has given the world many natural gifts; he's given human beings many natural gifts, and he's made us amazing. And God offers us many gifts even more marvelous. Dcn. James Pierce invites us to let Jesus into our lives; let him make us more than ordinary, more than amazing.

    The Yoke is Easy, The Burden is Light

    The Yoke is Easy, The Burden is Light

    We all know that the burdens in this world are heavy, and it's amazing news that Jesus promises us a light, easy burden. Sometimes it's hard to trust that Jesus' message - such good news - is true; are we afraid to trust him? From the times of the Old Testament, God has called his people out of that fear and into trust. Jesus called to people in his day, and calls to us in ours, 'You can trust me. My yoke is easy, my burden is light.'

    Courage in Christ | 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Courage in Christ | 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Our country and our world seem to be swimming in fear these days. Fears and anxieties are all around us, demanding our attention and it is in the midst of this noise that Jesus whispers in our hearts:

    Fear no one. 

    We are called not to be a People of fear but a People of God who live in hope. By trusting in Jesus Christ, Emmanuel, we are able to let God transform our fear into courage and we in turn become the intimate friends and preachers of God. The perfect love of God casts out our fear forever.

    What do you fear? What courage are you being called to today? Not tomorrow, today.

    For the Sunday Readings, see the USCCB for June 21.

    Hunger for Me | Corpus Christi

    Hunger for Me | Corpus Christi

    On the Feast of Corpus Christi we are reminded about the manna from Heaven, about the gift we have received in the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.   Jesus will be really present on the altar this Sunday and even if we cannot be there we will long for Him, long for the food that is Jesus. He is the only food that can satisfy us. And it is not just his Body and Blood that he provides. He also gives those who hunger and thirst for righteousness what they long for. 

    Jesus fills our every need, and satisfies our every desire.

    God's Gifts & Our Response | Pentecost Sunday

    God's Gifts & Our Response | Pentecost Sunday

    The Holy Spirit gives to each of us gifts, the most powerful of which is God's love for us and the love he has bestowed upon our hearts. But this love and these other gifts are not always apparent. 

    In the Gospel, Jesus simply breathes upon the disciples. A quiet, low-key sign by any measure. 

    Do we recognize the quiet signs even in the midst of our own anxiety and hopelessness? And even if we do see God's gift, are we able and willing to respond?

    Contrasting Loves | May 30, 2020

    Contrasting Loves | May 30, 2020

    There is a wonderful diversity present within the Dominican Order and within the early disciples. Every evening as we pray the De Profoundis we hear the names of those characters who have gone before. Many of them widely different from one another. As different as Peter and the Beloved Disciple, one a martyr they other who lived a full life on earth. But who each have within them a great love for the Lord. Just as we are called to have.

    This love for Christ is made manifest in widely different ways and in ways which can seem to be contrasting. But these contrasting loves, more than anything else, show us the truly unique role that we each have to play. We each will love different but we are all called to love. We are each unique and yet we are united.Let us love fully, each in our own way.

    For the daily readings, see the USCCB.
