About

famSince 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.

And take a tour yourself of our fair city if you are ever in town. You can have Aaron Friar as your host where he works at Boston Pilgrim Tours.

The Pleasure of Monasticism

Saw a documentary this evening about one of my favorite monasteries in the world: Valaam, the Athos of the north. A great quote from the movie: “If only the world knew the pleasures of being a monk, everyone would flock to the monasteries.” Enjoy!
