Last week I had the opportunity to speak at Religious Education Congress in Los Angeles. It was a wonderful, fruitful experience, but also one that took up all of my time from Wednesday until late Sunday of my week, meaning there was no newsletter last week and little production for this week. Let’s see what we can share anyway.
Good to Have These Prerecorded
Fr. Patrick and I love to review media, and in some ways, it’s easy to make episodes of Upon Friar Review. Despite the busy weeks, we’ve continued to post new videos, mainly because we filmed them back in January!
Two weeks ago we discussed the importance of going to Mass in reviewing an episode of Modern Family, and this past Friday I showed him a number of modern video games to get his reaction.
Finally, A Pair of Great Ones
This season, Fr. Tito and I have been working our way through sequels, a task that has left us with a number of duds. Luckily, the past two weeks has been fun: Back to the Future II, and John Wick Chapter 2. The first has some major flaws, but is fun to watch, and the second is flawless, but tough to watch.
Back to the Future:
How Should We Read the Bible?
The ancient writers knew that there are two senses of scripture: the literal sense and the spiritual sense. In this video, learn how each is understood for Catholics and what to do with them.
From the Archives
Sometimes it’s good to go back and watch old videos again. This one wasn’t popular in its time, but it’s one I think everyone should see.
Hope Lent is Going Well!
One week down! Keep on with your penance and make sure you’re ready for Easter when it comes!
Peace and good,
I’m enjoying the videos with Father Pat. Always funny. I also do learn a lot from you both. Thank you. Blessings 🙏
I really enjoyed this episode of “Breaking the Habit.” Thank you for discussing faith truthfully and joyfully.
What is your & Fr. Tito’s program called?
Re: Modern Family, Video Games, Two Ways of Reading the Bible, and Clash of Generations
Thanks, Father Casey. Not only am I glad you had a few programs on reserve for when your life got on the hectic side, but the above videos are VERY helpful to me as I aim to follow my Lord, and to understand my present world, the Bible, the church, other people, and myself.
Whew! In watching these, I feel deeply fulfilled and satisfied, like having had a healthy a 7-course meal. Now I’m ready to take on the week. 🙂
