Upon Friar Review Takes On George Carlin



I am a fan of Upon Friar Review and have subscribed to their Youtube Channel.  I recommend that you do so yourself.  

In the video link below, they take on George Carlin, one of the best stand-up comedians of this time and is known to be a notorious atheist and makes fun of God and religion in his comic acts.  

Personally, I like and also hate George Carlin (may he rest in peace). I love the brutality of his jokes when it comes to the government and culture but not so much about God and religion.  For the latter, I think he oversimplifies it too much but perhaps it could be part of the gig. 

Anyways, I like how Father Patrick and Father Casey, like always, handle their commentaries and how they gave light explanation about George's criticisms of the church.  Atheists and non-believers should take note of their answers.

Unfortunately, religious institutions, like any other thing that comes out or results from human hands, will never be perfect and it will always carry a darker side to it.  This is the main point that I wanted to express in my earlier blog.


There are a lot of Kindle books and audio books in Amazon that will bring more information about monks/priests of the Franciscan order like Father Casey and Father Patrick, please click here.

Upon Friar Review: Glowing reviews for The Chosen

 I like the Youtube channel Upon Friar Review.  It's about two Franciscan friars reviewing movies and shows in this channel and I love the way how they deepen my understanding of my Christian faith with the movies and shows that they review. And I am very glad that they have reviewed one of my favourite shows today: The Chosen.  I also like the fact that I share most of their point-of-view about the shows and they teach me as well about it.  So below are the Youtube links as they review Seasons 1 and 2 of The Chosen.   Also, I've linked the headings below to related Amazon items that may interest you.

The 12 Apostles

  In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God. And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

The Book of Job: Synopsis and Lessons

  The Book of Job is a part of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. It is considered one of the most profound and challenging books in the Bible. The central character is Job, a wealthy and righteous man living in the land of Uz. He is known for his piety and devotion to God. Job's life takes a dramatic and tragic turn when Satan challenges his faithfulness. Satan suggests to God that Job's righteousness is a result of his prosperity and that he would curse God if he were to face suffering. God allows Satan to test Job's faith, but with the condition that he does not harm Job physically. Job's suffering begins with the loss of his wealth, his children, and his health. He is afflicted with painful sores and is left in misery. Throughout his ordeal, Job's friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, come to visit him and attempt to provide explanations for his suffering. They suggest that Job must have sinned grievously to warrant such punishment, u
