In this episode of the Dating God Podcast we are joined by Julianne Wallace, a campus minister at St. Bonaventure University and someone who is an advocate for the need to focus our attention on Advent during the liturgical season in a renewed way. She is the author of the article, “A Contemporary Spirituality of Advent and Evening Prayer,” in Pastoral Liturgy. She speaks a little bit about what that article is about and suggests different ways people might celebrate the season of Advent amid the bustle of commercialized holiday blitz. For more on Advent this season and ways to celebrate the liturgical period, check out the article, “Advent Resolutions for a New Church Year,” in The Huffington Post.

  1. Wonderful podcast Fr. Dan. I have taught Discernment at St. Bernard’s in Rochester and one of the questions I have always included in the course, is where have you seen God during this week or this month–it helps the students to think about this Great God of ours.
