Talks on Br Duff Writings by Frank Duff Slide Show Cause Favours

Talks on Br Frank Duff

Our Curia is very lucky in the sense that there are members of our Curia and members in the local Dublin Curiae who knew and remember the Servant of God Frank Duff. We have asked some of them to give our Curia a talk about Br Duff so that we can all get to know this great man a little bit better. At present the talks are in mp3 format which most people should be able to play on their computer. If you have any problems with any talk please let us know.

Frank-l-y Duff!

We had a series of four talks in March this year where we asked our speakers to read a chapter from Frank Duff's book "Mary shall reign" and use that as the theme of their talk. After the talk there was a question and answer discussion session.

I knew Frank Duff series

Between 2005 and 2008 we had a series of talks about Frank Duff by some people who knew him during his lifetime. The exception being Fr Eamonn Mc Carthy who did not actually meet Frank Duff but he did a lot of work on his cause for canonisation, mainly orchestrating the compilation of all of Frank Duff's 33,000 or so letters so that they could be presented to Rome on disk. Fr Eamonn got to know Br Duff very well from studying his writings and he was ordained on Frank Duff's birthday several years before ever doing the work on his cause. (Many people volunteered to type the letters on their computer and send them to Fr Eamonn) We just asked the speakers to give a half hour or so talk about Frank and after the talk the audience were free to discuss or ask questions about Frank. Sometimes the talk and discussion went on for over an hour so we have divided up those talks into about twenty minutes or so sessions so that listeners can return another time to hear different parts of the talk. Each speaker was introduced at the start of their talk. They are listed here approximately in order of appearance.

That programme means personal contact, the contact of one soul with another. That is why I stressed that little heading: "Seek out and talk to every soul". Talking is the main idea, and it is the thing which we dodge most. We will do everything except go and talk to people about religion. (Everyone must pour himself into another soul; An address was given by Frank Duff in New York, during his brief visit to the U.S.A on the occasion of his reception of the Annual Marianist Award, 1956 from the University of Dayton, Ohio.)
