The world is an incredible place. All around us are mysteries of science and nature, dazzling us with their magnificence. Thanks to the internet, we have the opportunity to share them with the world.
In this episode of Upon Friar Review, I share with Fr. Patrick some of the craziest things I could find on the internet, things like the scale of the universe, human hair on an atomic level, crazy powerful shrimp, disillusioning sounds, and super slow motion impacts. It’s a pretty awesome episode.
MrBeast is one of the most popular YouTubers today with 46 million subscribers. He’s also the most generous, having given away more than 2 million dollars in just two years. Not all of it is altruistic, but Fr. Patrick and I approve.
Two months ago it was announced that Fr. Patrick Tuttle, OFM, my college campus minister, was being assigned to Macon, GA, 5 miles from where I live. The wheels in my head began to turn. Here’s an extroverted, holy, funny man, committed to the mission of Christ and completely without shame in front of a camera. How could I utilize this opportunity? How could we work together on something meaningful, something new?
What about a react-style channel?
And so began Upon Friar Review. Each Thursday, I wills how Fr. Pat videos from the internet and secular media, not to criticize or dismiss the world, but in an attempt to engage with it and, hopefully, call people from it to something deeper. Our hope is to reach people who would otherwise not watch a religious channel, providing them entertainment on a popular level… so as to give them some much needed theology.
