Join world-renowned liturgical theologian Fr. John Baldovin, S.J., in exploring the richness of one of our most vital liturgical seasons: Advent. Described by Notre Dame professor Rev. Maxwell E. Johnson as “a first-rate liturgical scholar,” Fr. Baldovin edifies as he nourishes the soul.

Advent is a season of expectation for the final coming of the Lord and for the annual celebration of his birth at Christmas. This series captures the spirit of Advent through its liturgical prayers, scripture readings, music, and poetry. Guided by Fr.

Praise for John Baldovin, S.J.

“Fr.

Maxwell E. Johnson, PhD., University of Notre Dame

“With a keen grasp of liturgical history and a profound love for the Church, Fr. John Baldovin’s scholarly work and masterful teaching faithfully address some of the more contested ecclesial issues of our time and open up the iconic depths of worship ‘in spirit and in truth’ for a contemporary age.” –Fr.
