About

Since the beginning of our family in 2004, we have always enjoyed a good journey to somewhere holy or interesting. Our family name Friar comes from a mendicant monastic order in the Middle Ages which traveled from place to place rather than remain in a cloister. Over the years, our desire to travel has brought us to numerous encounters in different parts of the world. It is our hope in reading this blog, that you will glean much in the way of contemporary spiritual nourishment to guide you in the path to the Kingdom of Heaven.

Highway to the Danger Zone!

Dear Readers, Sorry I have been away for so long. I usually try to post at least one thing a month. Having an older family makes us all very busy.

Glad to say I saw the new Top Gun film in the theatre yesterday. Cannot say it will appeal to all audiences, but it brought this GenXer many nostalgic moments and some surprisingly fresh content. Only criticism I might level is that the soundtrack was slightly better in the original, although this reboot develops the characters much better. The producer and company was correct to save this blockbuster originally slated for 2020 for a post-pandemic release. It is truly something worth seeing on the big screen. The audience we saw it with last night gave a slight applause at the end which I have rarely heard from an American audience.
