Join world-renowned liturgical theologian Fr. John Baldovin, S.J., in exploring the richness of one of our most vital liturgical seasons: Christmas.

This is a perfect gift for all thoughtful Catholics. Taught by one of our most beloved presenters, this course allows you and your loved ones to experience this and future Christmases more fully.

The most popular season of our Christian liturgical year, Christmas celebrates the birth of the Lord Jesus on December 25 as well as a number of feasts associated with his Incarnation. Superficial images of Christmas have saturated our media in countless movies, books, and songs. Now, you are invited to take a closer look at the deeper meaning of Christmas.

Through liturgical prayers, scripture readings, and the poetry and music of Christmas, you can grow in appreciation of the meaning of its celebration for our lives and in our world.
In this series, you will focus on the “Holy Night” on which our Savior was born and on the origins of Christmas in the city of Rome. You will also explore the other two Masses of Christmas day and the celebrations that follow.

Praise for John Baldovin, S.J.

“Fr. John Baldovin, SJ, is a first-rate liturgical scholar and an excellent teacher… As a committed Vatican II Catholic with an ecumenical sensitivity, there is no one better than he to lead us through and into the Eucharistic source and summit of the Christian Faith.” –The Rev. 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. Paul A. Janowiak, S.J., Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara (Berkeley)
